THE WARRIOR'S WAY: FALL/COMMIT
MENTAL TRAINING FOR SPORT CLIMBING
WHAT IS THE WARRIOR'S WAY?
At the heart of the Warrior's Way method is learning how to commit your attention effectively in the moment and on the task. There are many tasks in climbing, but when you boil it down there are simply two: climbing and resting. Learning how to separate these two tasks is what the Warrior's Way method is all about.
Over the last 15 years, NRMG has worked with The Warrior's Way founder, Arno Ilgner, who has developed a curriculum to teach climbers like yourself how to overcome their fears.
Being effective in climbing requires us to understand the consequences of our decisions and actions. In climbing the main consequence is falling. By understanding how to fall we diminish the chance of injury and allow us to focus attention effectively on climbing. In this 2-day camp, you will learn how to more effectively deal with falling situations by applying Warrior's Way exercises straight from the pages of the Espresso Lessons.
You'll learn to:
-Give a dynamic (cushioned) belay
-Break a climb into smaller risk events
-Assess risks effectively
-Distinguish between no- and yes-fall zones
-Engage no- and yes-fall zones appropriately
-Make appropriate risk decisions
-Improve body and mind awareness
-Create flow and momentum
-Deal with climbing stress
-Commit more deliberately
-Minimum 6 months climbing experience
-Climb a minimum of 5.9 in the gym without falling
-Being able to lead climb is not required, however, if students want to lead during the clinic they must get lead certified at the gym PRIOR to the clinic date.
Read Espresso Lessons with emphasis on Preparation and Action Chapters, and the exercises in the Appendix for these chapters.
Bring usual climbing equipment plus rope and draws (if you have these). A helmet is also required.
