Hey guys and gals!

I am leaving for Iceland next month and will be staying on a Horse Farm somewhat in the middle of nowhere for three weeks and was curious as to what one would recommend to keep in good climbing condition during this time. Im currently leading 11b and bouldering v6 and have a few trips lined up for when i get back and i want to still be able to keep up with my partner!

Thanks!
-Brandon

If you're only going for three weeks I would be concerned. You'll lose some fitness, but it won't be that much and should be quickly regained when you return.

Take a pair of these with you...

But yeah, 3 weeks will probably be a good rest from climbing. Rests can be good...

fill a bucket with rice. Dig your hands in and open and close your fingers (making fists). Do this a million times a day and your finger strength will be better than when you left

Do door jam pullups

Do a ton of cardio...heavy duty heart pumping cardio

Do a ton of pushups...all the way to the floor...no cheating
