Topic - Games to keep us interested while training this winter

mmmhumous on 30 Sep 2012
Anyone got any games which they use to keep motivated during the winter at the wall?

Here's a few that we use to help keep motivated.

Climbing Footsie - Every hand hold must first be earnt by touching it with a foot. (works well on routes and problems)

Octopus game from Paul's book: http://www.ukclimbing.com/gear/review.php?id=1952 (from a stable position see who can touch the most holds with each foot/hand. Tends to be good to warm up on overhanging problems.

One-handed climbing - (hand must be designated before climbing).

-Easy option: the hand can still touch wall for balance.
-Medium option: hand can still move (to flag for balance/ sdd momentum)
-Proper version: hand either behind back or on navel.

None handed climbing: Best done on slabby toprope

-Easy option(s) - holding tennis balls/making fists or only using
one finger for balance while climbing.
-Proper version - hands for flaging only - the full Johnny Dawes.
-For those who don't believe in gravity - while leading on an overhang.

No holds for feet: great smearing practice.
