If you regularly climb F6b or above and want to improve, spend a week with us we can knock months or even years off your climbing progression. So to break through your climbing plateau, head on the ground-breaking Rockbusters Advanced Climbing Camp with the world’s top climbers.
The recipe for success is simple…. Bring some of the world’s top climbers onto a Rockbusters camp, mix their knowledge and passion for the sport with your enthusiasm and desire to improve. Climb together for a week at a top crag and you’ll see rapid improvement and plateaus will be shattered.
To kick things off we’re running a week of pure coaching with Dalia Ojeda in one of the Spains’ / Frances´ hottest sport climbing destinations. Dalia is well known for sending the toughest routes in the elite climbing Mecca of Catalunya. She also embodies the attitude, style and climbing ethos of the Rockbusters team.
Rapid improvement is the aim of the camp so we’re looking for a very motivated group of climbers. For financial reasons pro-climbers rarely give their time away like this, but they want to give something back to the climbing community so Rockbusters are pulling together a focused group of climbers.
We expect to see spectacular results during the week, but you’ll also be left with much to practice and think about to continue your progression. And we expect you’ll be itching to return on the next Rockbusters Advanced Climbing Camp.
What to expect?
After meeting Dalia and the Rockbusters team, we’ll discuss your goals and choose the most suitable crag for the group. Then we’ll get started on the rock, where you’ll be spending plenty of time.... Learning will consist of short workshops, between climbing routes and practicing the moves.
During the week we’ll move through and focus on:
Balance and movement on steep and overhanging terrain. Specifically footwork, flow and efficient rests.
Overhangs – covering a wide range of techniques, saving energy on steeper rock, dynamic moves and sequences, knee drops, heel and toe hooks.
On-sighting and red-pointing – ethos, attitude and techniques to take you into the higher grades.
One or two days of bouldering
Intro into trad climbing, proper placement of your gear, building anchors, ...
This is a unique opportunity to climb with Dalia Ojeda and benefit from her experience and passion for climbing. So why not join the Rockbuster’s team on our Advanced Climbing Camp to push your climbing to the next level.
