Rock Climbing

Rock climbing is a sport in which participants climb up, down, or across natural rock formations or artificial rock walls. The goal is to reach the summit of a formation or the endpoint of a usually pre-defined route without falling. Rock climbing is a physically and mentally demanding sport, one that often tests a climber’s strength, endurance, agility, and balance along with mental control. Knowledge of proper climbing techniques and the use of specialized climbing equipment is crucial for the safe completion of routes.

      Episode # Covid-19 - How to Climb Furniture - The Bad Beta - A Climbing Podcast

      Well, well, well... It seems like a hundred new climbing podcasts have started up in the midst of the climbing quarantine crisis, and true to form, we thought we'd jump on the bandwagon the best way we know how; releasing an episode after months of silence. Steve is on Zoom, so apologies for his sound quality from his bunker in the woods. On this episode we discuss Covid-19 effects on climbing, including the demise of climbing gyms, the black market for hangboards, and the trend that you are all guilty of: building a woody. We talk about a possible way of climbing during the pandemic using colored shirts and arm-bands. Anna gives a gear review for the Misty Mountain Cadillac harness. We talk about Black Diamonds new offwidth cams, and much more.   climbing, rock climbing, beta, bad beta, trad, sport

      TBP 164 :: Alex Stiger and Neely Quinn on Getting through Injuries without Losing Your Mind - The TrainingBeta Podcast: A Climbing Training Podcast

      About Alex Stiger Coach Alex Stiger recently had surgery on her finger to repair a ligament she tore when she accidentally smashed it on a hold while bouldering. I also just had surgery on my wrist (same surgeon, one month apart), so we’ve been in almost daily communication about our progress, frustrations, and small victories as we recover. Between the two of us, we’ve had a handful of pretty serious injuries, so we thought we’d discuss how we’ve dealt with those setbacks and the lessons we’ve learned along the way. It can be difficult to stay motivated and take care of yourself when all you really want to be doing is climbing. It can feel sort of like punishment sometimes, but the main things to remember are that you’ll get through it and you can (usually) become just as strong or stronger than you were pre-injury. In the meantime, we’ll tell you how we have learned to honestly enjoy being injured sometimes. Alex Stiger is a Certified Personal Trainer, Sports Performance Coach, and Head Coach at Movement Climbing + Fitness in Boulder Colorado. Alex spends most of her week working with clients of all levels and ages to help them reach their climbing goals. She has climbed 5.13d and is working towards her goal of climbing 5.14. If you’d like to work with her doing remote coaching, you can find more info on that at       Alex Stiger Interview Details Brief overview of our injuries What our recovery times are/were What we’ve been doing to stay psyched and happy despite injury Why it’s important to still be around climbing if it’s part of your social life Strengthening other weaknesses while your injury heals The frustrations of the medical industry Why we wish we would’ve sought help earlier       Alex Stiger Interview Links  Work with Alex as your coach  Instagram: @alex.stiger 1st Interview with Alex on the podcast 2nd Interview with Alex: How Getting Stronger Made Her a Better Coach
