What you will learn
Focus is on select area(s) according to student's objectives. Areas we most frequently help with:
improving body positioning, movement and balance
technique for specific situations such as chimney or overhanging routes
Technique coaching is 100% practical - you will learn while climbing through specific drills and feedback
Who it is for
This is a great option for anyone that is serious about improving their skills. All levels are welcome!
Students should have prior rock climbing experience. Technique coaching is not intended for first-time climbers. Further prerequisites will depend on the skills you are seeking to develop. We will discuss this with you to ensure your objectives are attainable
All ages are welcome!
Technique coaching is best done in half-day sessions. The number of sessions is up to you!
You choose the day and time of each of your sessions - can be during the week, the weekend or on a holiday!
Technique coaching sessions typically take place in the neighbourhood of Urca, home to some of the most beautiful climbing walls and mountains in Rio de Janeiro including Morro da Babilonia, Morro da Urca and the Sugarloaf Mountain. With over 300 established routes across all levels, Urca provides us with an incredibly rich variety of learning settings to choose from. You can also choose to have your sessions in an alternative location (e.g., Plato da Lagoa, Barrinha, Contraforte do Corcovado), however, we will advise you if we don't feel that the location is best suited to your objectives
