3 Sport Climbing PRO Tips | Climbing Daily Ep.1674

Flatanger - Daniel Woods and Dave Graham’s Return to sport climbing in Norway

Norway’s Hanshelleren cave contains one of the densest concentration of hard sport climbs in the world. It’s not where you would expect to find two of America’s strongest boulderers. In 2015 Daniel Woods and David Graham traded their pads for GRIGRIs, packed their ropes, and crossed the Atlantic in search of forearm pumps, kneebars, and Thor’s own hammer.

Jain Kim shows perfect rock climbing technique in Suwon, South Korea. She demonstrates many rock climbing and bouldering techniques and makes it look effortless.

@7:45 she does a high step to avoid a high commitment move. Every other competitor went with a right foot flag on the lower hold and about %50 of them missed the move.

She tops both routes with ease. Also, she was the only one to top Womens Route B. Unfortunately I could not stay for the later rounds of the event, but she went to go on to win the event.

Jain Kim (Hangul: 김자인, born 11 September 1988) is a professional climber. She is mainly active in lead climbing and bouldering competitions. She won the Lead Climbing World Cup three times (2010, 2013, 2014), the Lead Climbing World Championship once (2014), and the Rock Master once (2010, Lead discipline).

8 beginner tips you NEED To know on how to start outdoor rock climbing

How to start outdoor rock climbing or looking for beginner rock climbing tips on how to start outdoor rock climbing? Then watch this rock climbing video for beginners on how what you need to know before starting outdoor rock climbing.

Rock climbing is very different from climbing indoors in a climbing gym. In this rock climbing video, I have collected my biggest tips from my own outdoor rock climbing, and I will tell you about important differences from indoor gym climbing, you need to know. Besides that, I will also introduce you to great beginners’ rock climbing destinations in Europe and share a few tips on what rock climbing gear you need bring. But watch this rock climbing video for beginners to find out!

1st beginners rock climbing tip: First of all – start with single pitch sport climbing! This resembles indoor gym climbing the most, so you can easily build up skill and outdopr rock climbing experience.

There are some differences between outdoor rock climbing and indoor gym climbing. One thing you’ll discover is that you cannot climb as hard as you do indoors. With outdoor rock climbing, climbing holds can be difficult to identify, since they all look the same! As you progress and start climbing harder outdoors, the number of climbing holds drop, and you can navigate by all the chalk marks other climbers have left behind.

Another thing is that outdoor climbing is a mental game! Taking climbing falls outdoors can be scarier because the distance between the bolts is often greater, and you will take longer falls! And this takes some experience getting used to.

2nd beginners rock climbing tip: There are many great rock climbing spots all over the world, but if you are based in Europe, I would highly recommend going to Italy, and especially Arco near the Garda Lake is fantastic place to start! There are loads of great beginners rock climbing crags and most beginners routes are really well protected with bolts every one to two meters

3rd beginners rock climbing tip: Get a hand full of maillons also called bail carabiners. If you find yourself on a route that is too tough, and you have to be lowered off, then you should place a maillon in the bolt and be lowered off that.

4th beginners rock climbing tip: Get a 60 meters climbing rope, or even a 70 meters climbing rope, with a coating that protects against dust and sand. Your rope will last significantly longer and it is definitely worth the investment.

5th beginners rock climbing tip: You should also consider getting a ropebag to store your rope in, when belaying. I own the Petzl Kliff which is a great bag with plenty room for gear, rope and a bottle of water, but actually one of those blue IKEA bags is a cheap alternative you can use as your first rope bag.

6th beginners rock climbing tip: As there are no quickdraws attached to the bolts outside you need to bring your own. For your first set of quickdraws go for something that are durable and light weight like the Petzl Spirit Express or the Black Diamond Positron. Personally,, I carry the DMM Phantom Express, which are super light weight, but I also use them for ice climbing and alpine climbing

7th beginners rock climbing tip: I like having a physical guidebook and publishers like Rockfax and Vertical Life make some excellent guidebooks! But, in these modern times you can also get apps with topography for different crags

8th beginners rock climbing tip: Get a huge roll of sport tape, so you can tape your fingers up. Making the transition from soft plastic holds in your local climbing gym to the hard granite in Chamonix or limestone of Arco is really tough on your fingers.

I hope this rock climbing tips for beginners video has helped yout out!

Sport Climbing: Respect the Rock

Top climber Emma Twyford talks you through the essentials of your first sport climbing trip to a quarry. She talks you through gear, bolts, loose rock, belaying, buddy checks, top roping and the all-important methods of how to thread the top anchors.

Quarried limestone gives technical, crimpy, steep wall climbing. If you’re sport climbing then you’ll typically need to bring 14 quickdraws, a 60m dynamic rope, helmets, guidebook and maybe a clipstick.

You’ll encounter a whole range of fixed equipment in quarries – from brand-new bolts – like these BMC-placed bolts in Horseshoe – to fixed equipment of widely varying age, quality, vintage and spacing. Check anything you’re about to trust including whether the rock it’s in is solid. And if you’re not sure, back it up or back off.

Loose rock:
Old quarries often have sections of great rock – and sections of not-so-great rock. Wear a helmet when climbing and belaying. Belay to one side of the route and move away from the base of the crag when having a break.

Belaying with skill and attention is always important, but when you’re outdoors with rocky landings and bolts further apart, then you need to be really on your game. If you’re using a standard belay device then make sure you have the tail rope locked off low, all of the time. Many climbers use Grigris for belaying on sport climbs. These are excellent, but they still require a hand on the tail rope at all times and take a bit of getting used to for feeding out rope to a lead climber.

Always tie a knot in the other end of your lead rope
Outdoor sport climbs are often much higher than indoor routes. Take great care that your rope is long enough, and tie a knot in the tail end of your rope. This sounds simple, but many experienced people have died or been seriously injured from the belayer lowering them off the end of the rope. It really is more easily done than you think.

Buddy check
Before setting off climbing, make sure that you’re tied in correctly and have put a knot in the end of your rope. Use the buddy check system to check that both you and your belayer are ready for action.

Take special care at the start of the route
Many people have an accident when falling off between the first and third bolt. This is because the ground is very close but you might have a lot of rope out. This is when the climber and belayer need to be doubly attentive. If you’re unsure about the start of a route, use a clip stick to clip the first bolt or two. And make sure that your belayer isn’t right underneath you – you don’t want to land on them…

What happens at the top?
The big difference between indoors and outdoors is that you need to know how to thread the belay station at the top safely before lowering off and retrieving your quickdraws. We look at two methods. It’s really important to practice both of these at ground level first. Some crags have special practice anchors. And if you’re in any doubt, then lower off and ask a more experienced friend to take over for you.

Top roping?
If you aren’t in the mood to lead climb and fancy working out the moves on top rope, then remember to use your own quickdraws on the top anchor to run your rope through. Don’t top rope with your rope direct through the lower off as this will accelerate wear on the bolts. And remember… never top rope or lower off on a single bolt

Bolt funds
Do contribute what you can to the local bolt fund in the areas you visit. They do great work, are entirely voluntary and are funded by climber’s donations

Heading off
After a great day’s climbing, remember to leave the crag. Camping or van camping isn’t allowed in these quarries. Now’s the time to pack up and head off to a local campsite, then spend some money with local businesses and celebrate your redpoint success in a great pub or café.
