Our 2-day performance climbing course is for the competent lead climber who would like to push their grades. We will provide you with the tools and strategies to break into the advanced-level climbing. Whether you want to break through into climbing your first HS, VS, HVS, or even the E grade (or Extreme Grade).
On the Performance Climbing Course, we will cover the following areas:
- Selecting and placing your protection
- Using good judgement
- Psychological aspects of climbing, our personal strengths and weaknesses
- Route selection
- Understanding the grades, and making the transition
- Movement over the rock
Most of us when we go climbing outside, we climb within a certain comfort zone. Meaning that we will not climb to our physical limit, as we do not want to fall off. This is usually to do with the lack of trust in the equipment. Maybe we do not trust our judgement in placing good gear.
Or it could be the psychological part, where we feel uncomfortable to fall off. On our performance climbing course we talk about the psychological aspects of climbing. We will also look at good gear placements and find ways to learn to trust ourselves, and the system. We will also look at a safe route choice, where we can practice all of the above
