How To Climb Harder

If you dream of pushing your grade and climbing harder then this course is a great place to start. On our How to Climb Harder course we use a holistic approach to improve your technique, tactics, confidence and mental approach to climbing, to deliver repeatable results to your climbing. There is even a How to Climb Harder book to go with the course.

This 2 day rock climbing course will make a real difference to how you climb. Making you more relaxed and efficient, with better technique, improved tactics and help re-energising your drive to get out there and enjoy yourself on the rock. With any luck you will also break into harder climbs.

The course involves movement coaching of rock climbing techniques on both boulder problems and rock climbs. We also cover the tactical approach to leading a rock climb, as well as the psychological skills that will help you improve how you feel lead climbing. What is great about this course is there is an accompanying textbook that you can use to carry on the improvements after the course has finished, to help you to remember and revisit the lessons we cover during the course.
