SPORT CLIMBING CAMP LEONIDIO with Daila Ojeda

01.02.2020 - 08.02.2020

Join Daila Ojeda and the Rockbusters team in Spain at some of the world’s best sport climbing venues. During this trip you will receive Daila Ojeda’s tailored coaching and have a unique opportunity to observe her flawless technique. Daila is one of the most accomplished female climbers, known for frequent ascents of sport routes up to f8c level. Benefitting from Daila’s experience and expertise, you will make a leap in climbing progression while enjoying the informal, fun atmosphere of this trip. 

The aim of this trip is to maximise your time on the rock and progress your performance by enhancing your climbing technique and improving your mental game. This camp will be especially useful for climbers who have plateaued at a certain level and are struggling to make the leap into harder grades. Learning from one of the world’s best sport climbers is a unique opportunity to speed up your climbing progression.

Daila Ojeda is known not only for her extremely difficult ascents in Catalonia, but also for her inspirational attitude and psyche. Although pro climbers rarely can contribute their time to coaching, Daila loves giving back to the community by running courses and workshops. In collaboration with Rockbusters, she has led many great trips and helped lots of climbers reach the next level in their climbing.

 

This trip runs in the traditional Rockbusters masterclass format. This means that you will bring the psych and the desire to push yourself, and our pro-climber coach will provide you with the tools necessary to succeed. After just one week of coaching you will not only know much more about physical and psychological climbing techniques, but will also have practiced them on the rock.

Because of the intense nature of this trip, we recommend it only for extremely motivated climbers who are confident in leading f6a and above. Thanks to small groups we can accommodate the needs of climbers at various levels up to f8.

During the course of the trip we will focus on balance and movement on steep terrain. We will practice efficient footwork and learn to find the best rests. You will get to practice knee drops, heel and toe hooks, as well as dynamic, dead-point moves in order to save as much energy as possible and climb harder than ever.

Depending on the group’s preferences, we will aim to spend most our days sport climbing, with one or two days of bouldering specifically to practise challenging, cruxy moves. (Organising a day of trad climbing is also possible, so please enquire when booking.)

To maximise your progression, most of the time will be spent of the rock, with brief theoretical talks delivered by Daila on an ad-hoc basis. Every year, the participants in our pro-climber coached trips experience spectacular leaps in their climbing progression, so expect nothing less!  

What to expect?

After meeting Daila and the Rockbusters team, we’ll discuss your goals and choose the most suitable crag for the group. Then we’ll get started on the rock, where you’ll be spending plenty of time.... Learning will consist of short workshops, between climbing routes and practicing the moves.

During the week we’ll move through and focus on:

  • Balance and movement on steep and overhanging terrain. Specifically footwork, flow and efficient rests.

  • Overhangs – covering a wide range of techniques, saving energy on steeper rock, dynamic moves and sequences, knee drops, heel and toe hooks.

  • On-sighting and red-pointing – ethos, attitude and techniques to take you into the higher grades.

  • One or two days of bouldering

  • Intro into trad climbing, proper placement of your gear, building anchors, ...

This is a unique opportunity to climb with Dalia Ojeda and benefit from her experience and passion for climbing. So why not join the Rockbuster’s team on our Advanced Climbing Camp to push your climbing to the next level.
