OVERHANGS / OS & RP STRATEGIES14.07.2018 - 21.07.2018

Are you an intermediate climber eager to overcome a plateau or progress faster? Our signature coaching is what you need, if we say so ourselves. Learn essential climbing skills in a relaxed atmosphere and enjoy the benefits of mentorship.

Focusing on balance and efficient movement, you will see a dramatic improvement in your ability even without getting physically stronger. But we’ve got some beta on that too, just ask! We’re here to help you maximise your time on the rock and send the route of a lifetime. 

This trip is a follow up to our Sport Climbing Camp, LEARN TO LEAD / FOOTWORK & BALANCE 07-14.07.2018. Depending on your level and availability, choose week one (beginner oriented), week two (more advanced) or both. We will make sure to accommodate your level and needs.

Climbers confident in their physical abilities will receive coaching on the mental strategies required for success in hard OS and RP projects. We will break down the differences between the two and equip you with psychological skills necessary to unlock your physical potential. 

This trip is open to all levels but our focus will be on more advanced techniques. If you’re looking for coaching suitable for climbers in the higher eighs (f8b and above), we suggest you book one of our pro climbers’ coaching programs, or get in touch to discuss your needs.

Slabs / vertical ground
If you already lead comfortably f5 or harder, you can now focus on footwork, learn how to work with your balance to find the most efficient  way to move up on the rock. 

Overhangs
If you already lead f6c or harder, you will learn a wide range of techniques and skills to increase your confidence and performance on steep terrain. You will develop learn how to save energy, move with ease and clip the chains of amazing, overhanging lines. 

On-sight / red point
This part of the course is dedicated to climbers who are already confident in their balance and footwork and fit enough to tackle more challenging projects (generally leading f7a and above).

In summary 
Whatever your level, you will build up your confidence, skills and strength and take one some challenging climbs. 
All Rockbusters courses are planned to maximise your time on the rock but we like to be relaxed and have fun. We love what we do and want you to enjoy the chill atmosphere of our climbing trips.
