Lessons from the gym and crag in the pursuit of better climbing.
METTLE is a collection of articles, essays, and stories of the training process. A climbing coach for over 25 years, Steve Bechtel started writing about training and performance as a way to organize his thoughts around the craft of climbing. In 2007, he launched Climb Strong as a blog, which then grew into a source for training plans, tips, and in-depth articles on performance rock climbing.
