Looking back through the annals of climbing history, our sport was once limited to those select few who either had bags of natural talent or the guidance of an extremely knowledgeable friend or family member. Fast forwarding to where we are today makes it apparent that the face of climbing has significantly changed, and we’re now able to climb higher, faster and harder than ever before. What has brought about this rapid pace of progress over the years, and how can you use that knowledge to improve your own climbing techniques?
Enter Mark Reeves, who many will know of from his outstanding book ‘How to Climb Harder’, if not through his work as the founder of Snowdonia Mountain Guides. In the next lecture within our ongoing series, Mark will be talking us through the science of climbing. Looking at how we have learned more about climbing throughout history, Mark will share how our improved knowledge has improved techniques and technology available – as well as what you need to do to make the most of them to improve your own climbing techniques.
Whilst we’re huge fans of climbing talks that share the challenges, trials and tribulations of an epic adventure, Mark Reeves’ talk promises something more – the chance to further our own climbing knowledge alongside a strong dose of inspiration through his different tales and anecdotes.
If you’re interested in coming along to hear Mark Reeves talk on the evening of Monday 12th May near Waterloo station, places are fast running out, so please do book soon. Each ticket costs just £10, making it more than affordable to bring along a climbing friend or two. You can purchase tickets and find out more information directly through our website, or take a look at Mark’s climbing expertise through his blog.
