What Are You Afraid OF? talks with Dave MacLeod
Dave MacLeod was a shy and fearful kid who hated sport, yet he went on to become one of the UK's most recognised professional rock climbers. In this talk, Dave will explore the ideas that defined his progress to making first ascents of some of the world’s hardest climbs, and reflect on the ideas from outside sport he's used to improve his own performance. Through his climbs on the Eiger North Face, Arctic Norway and of course Scotland, Dave explains conventional ideas from sports science he rejected as unimportant and arrives at his most important ingredients for completing hard projects in climbing.
