good thread. i'm a newb and have the book and am reading and re-reading the first few chapters, then trying to remember it when i play on the plastic.

i'm also taking a 6 week course - and the instructors repeat many of the things (in their own words, through their own experiences) in the book. having someone to show you, or talk you through technique has been helpful.

that said - i'm not sure i want to be efficient... i hope to become an effective climber - adaptable to the situation with my skills. people can be really good at things that don't get them up the wall or down the trail... getting good at bad practices and all.

semantics, i know - but in my mind, combining efficiency of movement and purposeful technique leads to effective climbing.

we'll see. again, i'm a newb. Shocked

It was clear that you were speaking generally, but the comments still foster a misunderstanding of climbing balance and having straight arms is not the same as hanging, and one can not hang from one skeleton.
