Tough For Us To Do

Those of us used to climbing 50-60 foot walls, would have a hard time taking the advice of Dave MacLeod who advises training for outdoor routes this way:

“Get out and climb at a standard that allows you to do 12 x 30m routes a day or more. That’s 2500 metres climbed in a week minimum.”

So, for the longest route at Red Wing – 62 feet – you’d have to climb it 19 times in one day and about 132 times in a week. I can see how you get good at building endurance that way. But, man, what a drag!
