/ Elite climbing training programme
Here's one written by the Austrian national team coach - can't get much more elite than that in competition climbing.
(Google translate is your friend)
Just a couple of things:
1)Why you looking for an elite climbing program, when the hardest you have in your log book is an E1 5c and a 6b+.
2)If you have to ask on an online forum for an elite training program, then the chances that you are already using a program is slim and if you are then surely you could modify that to suit.

Read 'The Self Coached Climber'. All will be revealed.
Fair dos! I seem to remember there being a series of suggested training schedules for different abilities towards the end of the book. I've been meaning to dig out my own copy for a while now so will do so tonight if I can remember.
I use the ones in the rear of Sir Ran Feinnes 'Fit For Life' which centre around core strength and stamina. Which works well for me...
I hold my hands up to the fact that I didn't read the bit about it being for a friend
Less than 50 words and you can't stay focussed for the ending. Best avoid books like War and Peace methinks ?;-)
PS I've 'been there' too :-(
