Insights from the UK’s Projecting Experts

In today’s podcast, host and coach Josh Hadley sits down with coaches Roz Frugtniet and Jonny Kydd to discuss their common mistakes, challenges, and tactics for climbing projects.

Roz is an experienced sport climber, having climbed multiple 8c routes and was the first British woman to flash 8a+ (Face de Rat, 8a+/5.13c, in Ceuse, France). Joined by, Jonny a renowned boulderer, who recently ticked his 5-year project that took him 110 sessions (The World is Yours, 8C/V15, in Biblins Cave, UK) showcasing his expertise in long-term projecting.

Their diverse backgrounds set the stage for an interesting conversation where the coaches share their distinct tactics and rituals for the crucial “send go!” Host and coach, Josh, explores the intricacies of bouldering while figuring out how many sessions is too little or too long to be considered a climb at your limit.

Other topics include:

  • Unlocking the power of knowing your project’s finish
  • Harnessing video beta to its maximum potential for accelerated learning

  • Managing the mental demands of longer-term climbing projects

  1. The content is awesome and so helpful, but the sound is consistently awful

    Have to listen 50% louder than anything else and even then it is difficult. In this it’s hard to hear Josh or Roz while Johnny is way louder

    Would be so great if this could be fixed, love the show but some episodes are not worth listening to because the sound is jarring

    1. Hi Z. Thank you for the feedback! We are glad to report that our podcast studio upgrade has been completed and the quality of the audio should be greatly improved! Stay tuned!
