I'm not stuck on a plateau ... yet

I've been climbing, mostly outdoor, for the last 4 or so years, maybe once a week or so. This fall I joined a climbing gym and would like to invest time and training so that by Spring I can move up at least a level, I'm around 5.10ish now.

My thinking has been to just have fun climbing and keep pushing myself to harder routes. This approach has appeal because it's so simple and I don't have to invest time or money into any specific training. I've been making pretty good progress doing this, but it occured to me that I might actually be teaching myself bad habits that I'll need to "unlearn" when I get to higher levels.

So, I bought a copy of "Self-Coached Climber: The Guide to Movement, Training, Performance" Dan M. Hague as well as a couple other books and am attempting to learn and apply all I can.

My question is, do you think this is adequate to get me on the right track or should I invest in getting expert feedback and training? At my home gym, "Vertical Endeavors" they offer individual training as well as weekly "Movement and Technique" lessons.
