Topic - Fall training

fire_munki on 24 Jun 2014
Right, I know where my issues lie (freezing up, just not moving etc) need some good fall practise as outlined by coaching, Dave Macleod's book, interweb. But inside my head all I can see is me smashing into the holds/rock face as I go down.

So I need practise, lots of it from reading, but what to practise on? I've been doing a bit sporadically on a very overhanging wall (at the Barn near Plymski if that helps), however as a f5+ / vdiff climber the chances of me trying a climb that overhanging outside varies somewhere between none and zero.

So what should the wall look like? Vertical? A few degrees over vertical? A slab? The next question is how to do the fall itself in training? I know what happens when I actually fall but should I push off, if so how much?
