Tips for new climbers:
- Warm up! Begin on larger holds to avoid injuries.
- Keep your weight on your feet. Your legs are stronger than your arms! Keeping your hips close to the wall can often make this easier.
- Keep your arms straight. This reduces the work your muscles have to do.
- Remember to rest! Climbing is mostly anaerobic so it can be harder to gauge when you’re getting tired.
