Pre Climb Tactics

Okay, a couple more items to help prepare for a tough climb…

Food: I try to eat some simple calorie (like granola or peanut butter) a little while before climbing.

Movement: Scope the route from the ground. Mimic the moves- focusing especially on your core muscles.

Skin: Make sure your hands are clean. I won’t even hold my girlfriends hand on the way to a climb because she uses moisturizer. Also, have some dude lather you up if you need sunscreen (alternatively, you could use spray on sunscreen).


Got out to the Gill Boulder in Eldorado on Friday. Here’s a quick tour…

Problems were: V-, Ament’s Face (V4) , V5 (?, not in guide) .
