1. Route Reading & Visualisation
Route Reading and Visualisation will focus on the tips and tricks we can use to hone our skills to plan out a route but also to use some brain training to work on our visualisation tactics which are particularly useful for projects. Some of the tips given will also focus on how we can train our brain at home and away from the rock.
2. How to deal with Anxiety and Fear
Focusing on two main tactics, we will look into Anxiety and Optimum Performance. This workshop will look
at Relaxation and Imagery. To then combine it with Centering and being able to use Progressive Relaxation on a climb.
3. Goal Setting and Awareness
Focusing in on trying to get direction as Lockdown eases and we can get back into climbing. Awareness of
the thoughts that go through our mind as we climb. What type of climber are you? Analytical or intuitive?
4. Fear of Falling
The big one and the culmination of what really holds climbers back from trying hard. We will delve into the Fears that stop you from trying hard and how to build fall practice into a routine rather than running away from it.
