If you aspire to climb harder - and you current grade is below f7c or V7 - these sessions are set to make a big impact on the time it takes to realise your goals.
I'll use advanced tactical, psychological and movement knowledge to swiftly identify your weaknesses, then arm you with simple solutions and a clear vision of how to make great gains in your climbing performance. All by fine tuning your technical, tactical and mental approach rather than increasing your fitness.
Coaching can be combined with crag skills tuition to ensure your
newfound prowess is confidently backed up by safe and up-to-date climbing
All courses are run at Kendal Climbing Wall, prices do not include wall entry:

1x 2 hour session
A two hour intensive breakdown of your current climbing technique. Using a
wide variety of movement exercises I'll thoroughly review your climbing style,
flag up any areas of weakness and give you simple drills to immediately begin
plugging the gaps in your movement repertoire.
Expect to be challenged mentally (rather than physically) as you try all those
moves you've been subconciously avoiding! The outcome will be a more
'movement aware' you, with clear ideas about what constitutes
'good technique', and a plan of how to build on your climbing technique to
maximise your potential.
one day: 10am-4pm or the 6 hours can be split over several sessions
The big one: We'll cover everything from slabs to roofs, from movement centres
to sequence reading. In six hours I'll visit every part of your movement style, your
tactics and your mental game and use the fine-toothed comb of all my coaching
experience to make you as efficient as possible on the rock.
Expect to see a significant rise in your climbing ability (with no increase in fitness
required), and your climbing technique should continue steadily improving long
afterwards. You'll also finish with a comprehensive knowledge of your climbing
style plus the skills required to self-assess your technique and remedy any
movement problems or bad habits you may have picked up.
