Crushing Tip

We like to think of our routes as ways to teach good climbing movement. Getting to the top of a route means that you've started to learn the lessons of a specific route. "But just like good movies deserve repeat viewings and good restaurants deserve repeat visits, good routes deserve repeat ascents." Explains Jon Manz.

Trying to climb routes faster, smoother, quieter, or with a different sequence are all great ways to learn something new from a route you've already “finished”. Alex Huber once said you haven't really mastered a route until you can climb it both up and down. He just might be onto something.

What to do? This month find a handful of routes near your climbing level and... CLIMB. Put up a few ascents on each until, "you can climb it both up and down."
