Whether it’s on our social media platforms, via email or on our website, we encourage and invite all friendly discussion about climbing and training for climbing.
Our team of staff, coaches, athletes, and ambassadors are all expected to follow a few rules, and we expect the same from everyone else in our community:
- Be kind and mindful when engaging with others
- Challenge each others’ ideas, but never insult the individual
- Contribute in a useful and positive way, not negatively
Our Community Goals
At Lattice, our goals is to develop and grow our understanding of effective training for climbing, a sport that is still very much in its infancy. We hope to educate and share psych about our amazing sport! Ultimately enabling everyone to excel in climbing and enjoy the sport throughout all of life’s stages.
We are proud to lead the industry, and also happy to admit that we might get things wrong from time-to-time—we’re all up for learning from our mistakes and growing together.
1. Be kind and mindful when engaging with others
Talking via a keyboard can make things tricky — sometimes the things we say aren’t received in the way we intended, even if well intentioned.
Do your best to speak to others as you would in-person, and ultimately treat everyone with kindness.
2. Challenge each others’ ideas, but never insult the individual
The most useful debates focus on the idea instead of the person communicating the idea. Avoid making things personal, and remember that opinion is important. So many areas of climbing are subjective and individual!
3. Contribute in a useful and positive way, not negatively
Constructive debate can create a safe place for people to respectfully express their opinions and learn through the process. It is an amazing thing when it works!
So keep comments well-intentioned and act in good faith. If your comment only serves to create dissent or inhibit a conversation, keep it to yourself.
