Indoor day

After yesterdays big day on the hill, John was keen for some technique coaching and an arm stretch in the climbing wall. As John hasn't climbed anything vertical for awhile, he was keen to see how quickly he would get pumped and in turn will see how his fitness has changed. First off we spent 3 hours (its not what you know, its who you know!) in the ice wall, fine tuning John's technique and we also had a go on the competition routes that were left up after the weekend. After lunch we went through and did some coaching on the rock walls, we identified John's weaknesses and did some exercises to turn them into strengths. After this we hit the dry tooling, something John hasn't done much of. Its great to see how well he's coming along. Last season he climbed two grade V's on consecutive days...maybe grade VI this winter...?
