Short cuts to reach 8a
  2017-03-10 00:00:00    
We have ranked 12 strategical and practical short cuts in order to push grades. Most climbers focus on strength, i.e. in comparison it is easier to develop technical, tactical and mental skill, which are in focus here.

Nice! So much for your policy of "it's all about the fun, so we can keeo an unrealistic ranking system because doing 10 routes is more important than a really hard one". You forgot the most obvious one: pick routes that suit your strengths.

Most of the points are good but some parts of it seems to be non-sense, like:


"top climbers (8a<) and other competitive athletes sometimes teach their muscles to work with acid as a source of energy, but only for short periods".
How does one teach muscles what to use?

Lactic acid training is very common in all endurance sports and there are several scientific researches that can explain it. Just Google it and you will see it is not non-sense :)
