Learn 100+ Climbing Techniques With Just 4 Movement Concepts

There are hundreds of climbing techniques!

If you take footswaps for example, we can think of at least 5 common methods (hop, roll, twist, tablecloth & step through), but there will be many more subtle variations on these and infinite variables based on the foothold used, body position or the angle of the wall.

This means learning the mechanics of any technique in climbing, while useful, won’t fully teach you how and when to use them, plus why understanding ‘movement concepts’ is more powerful for becoming highly skilled at climbing!

The idea goes; that when you understand the concepts or the ‘laws’ of movement, the correct climbing technique will fall into place and this is what we are going to show you in this video.

What does this mean for you? Well, learning about good technique means you will be able to intuitively adapt to the common scenarios of climbing; for example, if you understand the “direction of pull”, multiple techniques such as laybacking, heel hooking, rock-overs, relaxed arms, and even grip positions become more intuitive.

That is why we think understanding the 4 key climbing concepts in this video, you will be able to not only unlock but understand, hundreds of climbing techniques and adapt to infinitely more situations in climbing.
