Trad training in the gym? 29-Oct-2007 At 9:37:31 PM JBM
Trad climbing is:

1) Picking a strategy from the ground
2) Finding stances to place gear/de-pump
3) Hangin in there and dealing with the run out

Gym Simulation:

1) Pick a route at your limit (endurance,power, etc)
2) Pick a minimum time you will stay on the route (15-20 mins)
3) Skip the last bolt (if the fall is safe) and go for the chains when you are pumped stupid.

I just thought of this - what a great way to train for trad season!

Look for my next instructional DVD..."Brad's Bastard Class".
