NEW YEAR CLIMBING with Klemen Becan

28.12.2019 - 04.01.2020

One of the world’s best climbers and unique sport climbing performance workshop. Best New Year celebration!

There is nothing like learning from the best which is why we have added Klemen Bečan to the Rockbusters coaching program. Well known for onsight climbing, new-routing and his ability to perform extremely technical moves, Klemen now climbs for enjoyment rather than achievement, but no long ago he was the first to realise some of the world’s most difficult sport routes, including Joe Mama (9a+/5.15a), as well as a great number of extremely hard bouldering lines.

 

Now Rockbusters can offer you the unique opportunity to benefit from Klemen’s knowledge, enthusiasm and attitude during our Sport Climbing Performance Workshop. Spaces are limited and we can invite only eight climbers to join the trip as this ensures that everybody receives enough one-to-one, personalised coaching from Klemen Bečan.

 

You will spend plenty of time on the rock, as well as listen to short, informal talks by Klemen. We will also film your climbing so that you can analyse the footage with Klemen in order to identify weaknesses and help you take your climbing to the next level.

 

The Klemen Bečan Sport Climbing Performance Workshop follows the traditional Rockbusters format of informal masterclasses. Led by Klemen as the head coach, our experienced team will ensure that everyone climbs as much they can and gets all the coaching they need.

 

Our course will offer you the opportunity to maximise your potential and develop your climbing skills at a very high pace. During the trip we will help you push your grade while teaching you how to maintain sustainable, long-term progress beyond our time together.

 

Klemen Becan’s coaching focuses on balance and movement, which will help both your physical and mental development as a climber. Whether you are a complete rookie or an experienced cranker, analyzing your movement patterns and attitude will instantaneously boost your skills and help you break through any plateau.

 

Whatever your level, with plenty of time to practice newly learned techniques, you will increase your confidence and perform better than ever. After just one week of coaching you to head home with a completely new, advanced skillset. The aim of our Sport Climbing Performance Workshop is to allow you to learn from the best and use their well tested techniques to progress your climbing.

 

Here’s a little look at what to expect when you join our Klemen Becan Sport Climbing Performance Workshop:

 

Slab/vertical ground

Focusing on footwork, you will learn to find balance and use the most efficient and effective ways to propel your body up the rock without wasting energy. You will learn how to work with friction, make delicate steps and calculated, technical moves.

 

Overhangs techniques

You’ll develop and practise skills to help you handle climbing steeper rock faces. We will cover footwork and techniques such as drop knees, heel and toe hooks. A lot of time will be dedicated to the fine art of resting while climbing, as well as fighting “the pump”, both mentally and physically.

 

On-sight vs Red-Point strategies

Climbing onsight and projecting more difficult lines differs both physically and mentally. Klemen Bečan will cover the most effective strategies for success while onsighting or working a route over many days. You will have plenty of time to practice these and internalise the new skills.

 

As well as building confidence, strength and taking on some tough climbs, this is a Rockbusters course, so you can also expect a hefty dose of fun! We love what we do and that really comes across in all of our trips and programmes. And… we like to party almost as much as we like to climb, so get ready to have a blast on and off the rock. The informal, fun atmosphere of our courses is famous, but we never let this distract us from your climbing progression.
