What does this plan involve?

Week 1: Here we focus on refining your flagging technique and getting it right no different types of route. You are provided with tasks over 5 days of the week and illustrative explanations.

Week 2: This week we look at ARCing and endurance. Often when people fail on a route at the top of their grade, it can be the lack of endurance that prevents you from completing the crux move. We need to build this up for you to improve. This week continues with 5 days of tasks and a video.

Week 3: One arm traversing! A solid way to get you to improve you movement, balanced management and technique. Your tasks this week also include some further red-pointing, and enduring, to keep developing those muscles.

Week 4: We are really embedding those skills, with a video to help. Your tasks include a planned range of dyne practice to red pointing and endurance.

Weeks 5 – 32: We look at different types of route problems and challenges that you encounter at this level of climbing. The plan includes tasks that cover 5 days in every week, videos and illustrated explanations.
