Ahhh those heady summer days of lounging outside at the rocks, idly slapping at the odd mosquito and watching your friend try their project on a seemingly endless loop. Sadly, with the light drawing in and the rain spells becoming more frequent, those summer days have passed for another year.
But instead of longing for days gone by, look to the immediate future and a real opportunity to lay the foundation work for your climbing projects next year.
Whether you’ve been climbing for years, or are slightly newer to the scene, getting some coaching whether it be strength and conditioning, technique classes or more specialised finger work can really transform your climbing and take you to the next level. Start now, and by spring you’ll be amazed at your progress.
Aimed at those who have been climbing a while but are noticing that their finger strength is starting to be a limiting factor. If you feel you are ready to begin finger boarding but have no idea where to start, these classes are for you. Along with finger boarding do’s and definitely do not’s, there will be an in-depth look into crimping and sloper techniques and some handy (pun not intended) pointers into the best way to grasp certain holds.

Strength and Conditioning
Key to any climber upping their performance is a strong base from which to work. While many climbers might come for the social scene (and who can blame them), if you are willing to put the work in off the wall, the results will follow on it. From TRX sessions to straight up core workouts, there is plenty that can be achieved off the wall to aid performance on it.
