Tip of the Week – 4 Tips to Sending your Project from Planet Granite on Vimeo.

There are many different reasons why you may not be sending your project. This week, Ford breaks down 4 tips to help you crush your current project!

Tip #1 – Work your project in sections.

Is it just the dyno that’s stopping you from sending? That right hand crimp you just can’t move off of? Work on just the 1-2 moves that are giving you the most trouble. Once you’ve got those moves dialed, go for the send! Working your project from the beginning every time will waste valuable energy!

Tip #2 – Gather as much beta as possible!

As other folks in the gym, staff members, your friends, anyone! Getting a new take on your project will often reveal new beta for your body type, or a sequence you may not have thought of.

Tip#3 – Visualize

This is often called ghost climbing. Climb your project in your head, every single move, before you get off the ground. Move your hands and feet to mimic how you will climb when you send!

Tip#4 – Execute with Precision

Once you’ve worked the crux and have it dialed, are confident in your beta, and have ghost climbed it, go for it! When going for the send, try to execute as precisely as possible, exactly how you’ve imagined climbing it. This will help you stick to your beta and climb as efficiently as possible!
