If you were to think of good single descriptive words, or short statements to describe how a climber is moving what would you use? For example...

Precision

Fluidly

Conserving energy

Not quite what your asking but.., but being a talented climber named 'Trevor Panther' seems very cool.

Not another book Graeme, this may help to form an observation activity to be used as part of my delivery of the new Mountain Training coaching scheme. I'm struggling with words this morning.

To everyone else, thanks for the suggestions.
