Overview

You've completed BMC FUNdamentals of Climbing Workshops 1 & 2 and you're working with climbers who already have an advanced level of technique. You'll need to understand complex techniques in depth to be able to coach them. The third FUNdamentals workshop is designed for you to reach this level, and to hone your skills to effectively observe and analyse a climber's movement. We'll look at what happens to body positioning and movement when hand and footholds become worse, the angle steepens and dynamic movement is employed.
