Climbing Psychology Book

Fear and how it manifests in the brain can have a detrimental effect on climbing performance, whether we experience a fear of falling, a fear of failure, or a negative mindset. The psychology of climbing is not well covered but is just as important as physical training and climbing technique. With a strong mental game, it is possible to operate at your physical limit and enjoy climbing more.

The book, Climbing Psychology, uses the latest in sports psychology, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, scientific research and the author’s own experiences to explain a complicated subject. Climbing psychology describes how the mind works in fearful situations – looking at fear and how it manifests not only psychologically but also physically.

It is possible to train step-by-step to deal with these aspects in climbing. We live in a society where we strive for results but aren’t always sure how to get there. We can achieve so much more than we think we are capable of with a few simple techniques and a willingness to learn.

Don’t limit yourself!
