Climbing coaching day
Posted on May 28, 2012 by Darren Williams.
With another great day of weather came a great day of performance climbing coaching, we had a group of nine who wanted to improve there sport climbing technique in order to push there grades a little! after a quick early morning chat to establish the groups needs and aspirations we headed out to a local user friendly sport venue (Castle inn quarry)
We started off the day by putting up some top ropes on varying grades so we could establish a workable baseline to start the days coaching, after these few warm up climbs we started with a little connectivity, body management and movement skills and moved onto some more advanced techniques before letting the group loose on some lead climbing, it was here we began to look at the physchological aspects of being on the sharp end!!! All the group responded well to the day and are looking forward to putting into practice there new found techniques tomorrow.
