Follow The Herd?

In this video of the winner of the women’s lead championship at Arco, Italy, you can see her try to figure out the crux move at about the 6:00 minute mark. Finally at about the 8:00 minute mark, she makes her winning move. The seven climbers before her all tried to make the crux move by moving their hands first. And they all failed. She tries something completely different – moving her feet first – and wins the competition. Most of the time, doing what others do, works. Champions know when to do something different.
