Topic - 10.000 hours

dg123 - on 25 Nov 2012
10.000 hours seems to be the magic number, if you want to become an expert at something, that's the number your aiming for. However, how does this translate for climbing? Assume that you mainly train by bouldering indoors, you train 7 hours a week, so 365 hours a year, so you'll be an expert in little more than 30 years. Brilliant, in only a few decades you're an expert! (at indoor bouldering) However, in that hour of training a day, normally, you probably only actually climb for a third of that hour. So does that mean that you have to climb three times more to be an expert, or that you'll be an expert after a bit more than nine decades? Also, rather more uplifting, if you work 40 hours a week it only takes five years to become an expert at your job!
