Adam Ondra on-sight & red point coaching schedule
In the evening, before the first day of climbing with Adam Ondra, he’ll introduce his on-sight climbing methods. Using a slideshow, commentated video, and photos he’ll give you a sound understanding of the theory with plenty of time for questions and conversation.
Day 1: On-sight
Adam will take the group to the crag and conduct a warm up. Then he’ll add to the previous evening's discussion by giving a practical explanation followed by a demonstration of putting on-sight theory into action.
Next it is your turn. Each climber will choose a route suitable for their ability and will attempt to climb it on-sight. Throughout the day you’ll practice on-sight climbing, Adam will be on-hand to provide tips and advice.
During the day the group will be filmed, and video will be used for further analysis later in the day. Adam will start by analysing his on-sight attempt and, if you would like, he will analyse yours too.
Before you pack up for the evening Adam will discuss red point theory. Again there will be plenty of visual aids and an open discussion to keep it interesting and informative.
Day 2: Red point
Again Adam will take you to the chosen crag and get things started with a thorough warm up. First up Adam will give a demonstration of putting red point theory into action on the face.
Each climber will chose an appropriate route to try to project. The goal is to send the route in two or three attempts. With valuable insights Adam will coach you in putting the red point theory into practice.
In the evening there will be further video analysis with a breakdown of your red point attempts. Adam will look at ways you can improve, leaving you with areas to work on to ensure you keep improving as a climber.
