Mental Side of Climbing - Riley Joyce

Mental Side of Climbing - Riley Joyce
Mental Side of Climbing - Riley Joyce
March 18, 2012 - 

Five, four, three, two, one… Start! The words that you are saying to yourself before you place your foot on the wall and that determines what will be on your score card. The moment when you can feel your heart beating so fast that is when I know this is it. I am ready to compete.

The biggest skill that I lack in climbing is the mental side. When you are at Regionals or Nationals, there is so much pressure that you have to take in and make it into energy in your body. But when you are at the gym training its completely different. The feeling when you know that someone came across the country just to see you climb is huge!
