Climbing tips: Don't Get Strong, Get Good.

Photo: Keith Ladzinski. Rock climbing is equal parts mental, physical, and technical. Yet most climbers only focus on the physical. All winter long climbers thrash themselves in the gym, thinking that bouldering, routes, 4x4s and campusing will deliver the sends of their dreams come spring. Of course, all of that stuff helps and climbers who train will see big improvements in fitness. The truth is, for most climbers, especially those of the beginner and intermediate variety, good climbing technique will get them much further than a strong back and a vise grip. It’s easier to get stronger than it is to get better. Proper technique honed over many hours of practice is more enduring than one’s momentary form (strength and fitness). We try to perform our best every single time we enter the gym or a crag, whether that means throwing ourselves at the hardest problem or route we think we can do, or just going to failure.

While it might be too late for some of us, hopefully Sarah’s advice will inspire any newbies just getting into the sport!

Have you ever found yourself at the crux of a climb, pulling hard to stick the move, then sadly fall, take a huge gasping breath, and realize you had been holding your breath the whole time?

Techniques For Proper Breathing In Rock Climbing — Conquer the Crux

Sounds familiar right? Since we’ve been breathing involuntarily since birth, it’s not something many of us are used to consciously thinking about. During harder exercise when our muscles are demanding more oxygen, we breath more rapidly because that’s what comes naturally, not because we make the decision to. However, this doesn’t mean that the quality of our breathing is up to par.
