Folks have been asking about bouldering techniques (like kayaking bouldering has its own moves).
Climbing comes down to linking keeping 3 points of contact w the wall. 2 hands and a foot, 2 feet and a hand. You want to move peacefully and w/o brute force in an upward motion. Climbing is a puzzle always changing (like paddling tidewaters) so beautiful, interesting and addictive.
Foothold placements requires precision. If you just slap your shoes onto holds you’ll never hit the sweet spot and your feet will forever be slipping and slopping. It’s best to practice on easy routes, but always strive for precise and coordinated foot placements.
