How To Climb Overhangs : Techniques And Skills

A Demonstrative Tutorial on Techniques and Physical Capabilities for Climbing Overhanging Problems, held in the usual comprehensive, information-dense style.
There isn’t really one single key technique which is going to solve all overhanging problems easily. Rather there’s a conglomerate of different techniques and physical capabilities which, when used appropriately, will make climbing overhangs easier. Important techniques are amongst others the Backstep and Hooks, while important physical capabilities are Body Strength/Core and Upper Body Strength.

Some of the Links above are Affiliate Links which means that Purchases will grant me a small Commission. Since climbing gear represents a quite small niche, everything is not sold from every single Amazon store, thus not all countries are supported. However the US, UK and Germany are fully covered, you should find all of the recommended gear in these stores. And in case you’re not into longer shipping, why not support your local climbing shop 🙂
