Rock Climbing Technique For Intermediates : Hooks | The Ultimate Guide

This Tutorial covers all Aspects of a very Useful and Versatile Rock Climbing Technique: Hooks! I explain Definition, Advantages and Areas of Application in the usual Illustrative and Information-dense Style. Apart from that I try to provide an interesting array of details which have great influence on whether a certain hook works or fails on any given problem. This should provide the progression-oriented climber with the knowledge necessary to solve hook-heavy climbs more efficiently and thus faster. Heel and Toe Hooks are important skills in the tool box of any intermediate/advanced climber, so be sure to incorporate them into your sessions, practice makes perfect! And don’t forget to stretch: A greater flexibility increases your available number of options quite frequently, especially when it comes to hooks!
