Training/Jens: The easiest and quickest way to progress for climbers below 6c or so is actually just to focus on doing as many meters and moves as possible. This will build a good platform and it will prevent you from injuries. This is easy as you are training at the gym but outdoors it is more difficult due to the limited number of easy routes and accordingly, here are some tips:

1. Hang dog or get someone to pull the rope as you are warming up or doing the cruxes.
2. Climb the easy part twice instead of doing the whole route.
3. Try to find variations on top ropes also by clipping a neighbouring bolt.
4. As you are working a crux sequence, train it from above.
5. Hang often in the rope and climb in intervalls.
