How to climb three grades harder (and cruise those routes you’ve always dreamed of doing...)

What standard could most climbers operate at?

What standard do most climbers operate at?

In the USA and the UK , the ‘average' grade seems to be about 5.9 or HVS/E1. Certainly, in climbing walls and gyms, the most popular grades seem to be F5 to F6b (sport, i.e. ‘French' grades) That's about 5.9 to 5.10d.
My experience is that, for people operating in this mid-range, gains of at least three full grades are perfectly reasonable. For instance, somebody operating at 6b(5.10d) could very probably raise their standard to 6c+ (5.11c).

So why isn't everybody doing it?

For a start, they don't know how! And, dare I suggest… life gets in the way. Most climbers have careers, family commitments, domestic challenges. Too much to do and too little time in which to do it. A hurried session at the gym here. A half day at the crag there. A half-hearted approach to (the wrong?) training. Information on training? There's mountains of it! But again, most climbers just don't have time to plough through all those mountains for the right approach to help them raise their game. All too often, attempts at improvement end up in failure. But it doesn't have to be like this, it really doesn't. Let's look at a few people who succeeded.

How a middle-aged, ‘distinctly average’ climber from

Sheffield accidentally discovered a formula for

climbing success.

 He improved by six grades – from F6c (5.11b) to F7c (5.12d). One climber even went from F4 (5.7) to F7a/7a+ (5.11d/12a) - About 10 grades!!!
