Give Your Feet More Credit
Give Your Feet More Credit!
Here’s an exercise that can help you get more from your feet during your next redpoint effort:
· Get on a vertical or even slabby wall and start traversing. Try to focus all of your attention on your waist, hips, legs, and feet.
· Think of every sequence of moves as “foot, foot, hand, hand” instead of “hand, hand, foot, foot” the way a beginner often does.
· Exaggerate the lower body movements and keep as much of your focus there as you traverse back and forth.
By overdoing this aspect of your climbing for a few sessions, doing it right when you’re back on routes will come naturally. The patterns and habits will already be there.
