For more experienced climbers, it is often difficult to break mental and grade barriers without the help of a climbing coach. Guides can help you achieve confidence with your leading to allow you to push these grades. Checking your gear protection, building confidence in your mental approach and coaching your ability to make an efficient crux move is the goal.Pushing your climbing to its limits Guides can help unlock your true climbing potential. Leading those dream climbs on your bucket list can become a reality. With the watch full eye and close supervision we will allow the climber to safely make the lead under their own steam.
Coaching will start with improving your movement over the rock. Often bouldering or with the comfort of a top rope. Psychological training and visualisation exercises prepare for the leader for pushing the grade. Final on the sharp end, the leader will be closely supervised and advised as they make the ascent. Often the Guide will be attached on a separate rope close by in case they need to swing in and quickly clip the leader in.
