Training Tip: Devolve
When climbing, try to use your feet more like hands. Sometimes, especially on steep routes, it's possible to hook your heel or even your toes on a hold and pull your body in.
Also, try to relax -- don't over grip on the hand holds. It often takes much less force to stay on the hold than an anxious climber exerts.
And shift your hips -- you can produce dramatic differences in the difficulty of hanging on a stance with subtle shifts in hip position.
