Warrior's Way is an international community of mental climbing training.  Our accredited instructor will guide you on your way towards becoming a more confident climber.

Jamie starts to move above the bolt, feeling sure she’s about to approach the crux of the route. The next bolt is only 4 feet up, but it feels further. She make a few tentative moves, her last bolt now just a bit below her figure-8, scared to go any higher. “Take!” she yells.

Most climbers experience this same feeling: move into the fall zone while leading indoors, become unsure/scared, and then yell for the belayer to take. But you can safely and easily learn to lead above the bolts with confidence and not worry about the fall.

This 4-hour gym clinic on climbing mental training teaches you how to become comfortable falling and making moves before reaching a rest stance with the goal of sending more routes and having more fun climbing.


Class Overview

You’ll do progressive falling practice, starting with falls on a top rope pushing in and out of the wall (what we call Catch & Release). Then your trainer teaches you how to take small lead falls, and then as you become comfortable, slightly larger lead falls (Fall Casting).

Hands-on practical sessions also include how to move efficiently and how to rest; drills to control your breathing; body/mind mental awareness exercises to keep control of fear and discomfort (using the Catch Your Devil drill).

Towards the end of the clinic you apply everything on a goal route, either on lead or on top rope. During the early part of the clinic you worked on individual pieces – on the goal route you assemble the puzzle pieces on a redpoint burn of a route that challenges you.
