Tip #33 – Rock Climbing Technique (book)

Rock Climbing Technique

This is a combination of a book recommendation or review and a tip.

A few weeks ago, John Kettle, a well-known Lake District-based climbing coach, released his new book Rock Climbing Technique. The book focuses on what constitutes efficient and effective climbing movement and contains numerous exercises to help drill those movements into your climbing. The book is accompanied by a series of video clips (online) so that you can see visually what the book is explaining. I have been taking it to the climbing wall with me and working my way through the exercises – and then trying to ensure that I continue to climb using those techniques.

So, this month’s tip – go and buy John’s book and start to follow the exercises.

PS – I have no financial interest in John’s book and am not on commission! 😉
