When I first set out to write a series of entries here aimed at helping others improve their climbing two years ago, I never thought I’d still be writing these entries two years later. I set out with the intention to try to set down and summarize what I’ve learned and concluded from all of the research I’ve done both via reading and in the field about training for and improving at climbing. My aim was and continues to be only to provide information about effective and efficient ways for others to improve their climbing.
Of course, along the way, I’m sure my views have shifted here and there from what I originally wrote even a couple years ago; such is the nature of learning and being open to new ideas as they come along. Still, though, I’ve enjoyed trying to put into words what I feel may help others on their journeys to being improved climbers, while also recognizing and realizing that all things do not apply or work for all people — such is the nature of human individuality in all things.
As Improve Your Climbing turns over into year three, I am not certain how much longer this series will continue (though there are definitely still 3-4 more entries left in the current series about climbing being the best training for climbing and plateaus) — from the start it was an open-ended endeavor, and again, I never thought I’d be writing it for as long as I have!
In any case — Improve Your Climbing returns next Friday with Climbing IS the Best Training for Climbing, But…Part 8. I hope you’ve enjoyed whatever parts of the series you’ve read, and that you’re excited to improve your climbing in 2015, or if not, to just have the most fun this year you’ve ever had doing whatever it is you love! Happy New Year!
