Hi all,

In this article http://www.ukclimbing.com/articles/page.php?id=4289 , when it says "3 x hard routes" (redpoint or onsight), does it mean that for these hard routes, you could work something (ie bolt to bolt)? Or should it be a proper attempt at the route from bottom up?

Also in article 5 it says "3x2s". Is that three routes twice or two routes three times?

Ta,

Jonny

Should be done in a continuous push either onsight or something you have previously practised.

Given that 4x4s are 4 routes done consecutively to form a set with 4 sets completed to make 16 ascents in total then 3x2's are 3 (harder) routes done consecutively to form a set with 2 sets completed to make 6 ascents in total. In this sort of training you should aim to minimise the rest between ascents within a set. This can facilitated by using a short rope and staying tied in and pulling the rope through from the other end.

Just email, I'm sure he will clarify it.

In reply to JD84: I sent an email to Robbie and here's his reply:

"3 x Hard routes can be redpoint or onsight, try to mix it up a bit. This part of the training is a bit of technical, tactical and physical training.

3x2's are 3 sets of 2 routes (back to back)"
