It is with great pleasure that we welcome Neil Gresham back to Stronghold!

We’ve made this happen at super short notice so apologies for lack of notice. All of Neil’s previous coaching sessions always went down amazingly well at our original Stronghold so we jumped at the chance to get him back.

What Neil will be coaching:

Improve your movement
How to climb smoothly, ‘like a pro’ on steep terrain. Refine your footwork and stay relaxed and focused when the climbing gets tough.

Key techniques for overhangs
Conserve energy by relying on skill rather than arm strength. Master the art of twisting in and using techniques such as drop-knees and flagging.

Dynamic movement
Use controlled momentum to make harder more powerful moves.

Slopers and compression climbing
Feel comfortable and confident on slopers and how to use heel and toe-hooks to squeeze volumes and large features.

Supportive tactics – route-reading and working projects
Master the inner mind-game of bouldering. Plan your sequences and analyse and correct mistakes in order to climb harder problems with less effort.
