“Desperate Measures”, V9/10, first ascent on Mt Fox in the Southern Grampians. Great camera angle by @sophievivianvivian.

Honestly climbing by itself will help you out the most with grip strength when you’re first starting out. For injury prevention you can do“rice bucket” exercises and rubber band exercises. Fill a bucket with uncooked rice, press your fist towards the bottom, gently open your hand. Also place several rubber bands around your thumb and an opposing finger, pull apart repeatedly. Perform this with each finger.

For many female climbers, upper-body and core strength can be weaknesses that affect climbing performance. Obviously, with climbing being a sport that revolves around strength to weight ratio, addressing any weaknesses in upper-body and core strength is important for any […]

Up to this point we have talked about being prepared, having a plan and troubleshooting fatigue. Now we are going to dig a little deeper, talk about finding the low hanging fruit and how to develop as a balanced climber.
There are three major categories for improvement within a the sport of climbing that you can focus on are:
Mobility - Strength - Technique
Mobility will allow you to reach further, save energy by not having to fight your own range of motion and open doors to positions on the wall. It will also reduce cramping, hot spots in the muscles and muscle imbalance over time. Mobility is also one of the great reasons to climb as part of a healthy lifestyle. Climbing forces you to move your body in ways that it’s not accustomed to.
Strength is a little more straightforward. By being stronger you can hold on longer, perform harder movements and endure overhangs and more challenging positions. When it comes to climbing strength, most people will need to start with grip strength.
Technique improves overall efficiency which can save energy. Technique is one thing I will not cover on here, but must mention because being mobile and strong is helpful, but technique is how you utilize your strength and mobility. In order to build technique, you need to climb mindfully and/or get coached on technique.
These three elements when developed in unison will work synergistically to accelerate your learning, improvement and enjoyment while climbing. Start thinking about how you climb and where you excel and where you can improve.

The IFSC is honored to announce that the International Paralympic Committee has granted it the status of “Recognized International Federation”.
The IFSC has been hosting paraclimbing competitions since 2006, when the first international event saw athletes from four National Federations compete in Ekaterinburg, Russia. The movement has grown in recent years, with a regular circuit being added to the IFSC calendar from 2010 and World Championships taking place from July 2011. It has become tradition that the Paraclimbing World Championships run alongside the World Championships, promoting athletes with a disability on the same stage as other athletes. Proud of the growth of the paraclimbing community and the standard of competitions, the IFSC remains dedicated to developing and strengthening the competitions and support available to athletes.
“The IFSC is delighted with this development and looks forward to working with the IPC, matching Sport Climbing’s potential for growth with the Committee’s expertise,” said IFSC President Marco Scolaris, “Climbing is a sport for all and for everyone; we all climb on the same holds. We hope that this recognition opens the door to and inspires many more athletes with disabilities.”

Black people don’t climb.
That’s what a Google search toldMikhail Martin, co-founder of Brothers of Climbing (BOC).
From that point on, Mikhail made it hismission to challenge that misconception.
By promoting a more welcoming environment for people of color to explore rock climbing, BOC—a group which started at New York’s BrooklynBoulders—aims to break down barriers to entry and increase theinvolvement of minorities in the outdoors.
This week’s Friday Flick Pick introduces us to some of the faces behind the growing community that is, Brothers of Climbing.

Stefano Ghisolfi got the highpoint on the Project as a nice birthday present and in fact he could be called superior. In reality, the show and route could have been better as we did not see too much fight as it starts very easy in comparison to World Cup routes. Furthermore, the limited rest and possibly also the fact that conditions got worse due to the crowd, which warmed the place, made the second attempt mainly worse. The climber who has the highpoint each year Will get 1 000 euro. If you manage to top out, you get 5 000 euro. It seems impossible even if Adam Ondra will try later this spring.
