The Hard Truth
A hard truth is still a truth.
Becoming a better climber isn’t only about adding more weight to your max hang on a fingerboard or being able to deadlift 2x bodyweight. Frankly, what’s more important is that you understand your motivations, your approach, and that you’re honest with yourself about the amount of effort you put in - both on and off the wall.
This collection of essays, written over many years for The Power Company Climbing blog, will shine a light on those qualities that limit us the most. The qualities that are hard to measure but simple to manage. Simple that is, when backed with intention. These essays are written about real climbers in real situations. Maybe you know some of them. Maybe it’s you.
