Re: [curt] How did you learn technique/movement?
Report this Post
Put in allot of time on easy/mid level climbing. Try new ways of completing old moves. Watch others complete same climbs and pay close attention to their footwork. Try it their way a few times, then decide if it was better or not. Watch youtube climbing vids.. alllot of them. Try work out what you think the climber is going to do next before he has done it.
Harder climbing is good too. Learning technique on easy shit then expecting to be able to use it at limit is complete bolix. While under stress its so easy to slip into bad technique.. start over gripping etc etc. You learn that control by doing more hard climbing. Cant ignore that.
*Good mix of easy/mid level climbing trying to do things differant all the time. Don't be shy on hard climbing at least once a week. Watch others climbing when you are resting.. and stay focused on what they are doing differant.
