In 7 steps to the 7th degree | Break through performance plateaus

The highest performance plateau in climbing lies in the upper sixth level of difficulty. In other words: Many climbers quickly reach a level of 6b/6c, but don't make it beyond that. With these 7 tips you can make the jump to the seventh degree of Frenchness.

Who doesn't know it: At the beginning of your climbing career, the performance curve was steeply upward, then it flattens more and more and threatens to stagnate. For many advanced beginners, 6b/6c is the end. This doesn't have to be the case, say the experts at Lattice Training. You can find out how you can prevent your own performance from stagnating at the ominous limit from 6th to 7th level of difficulty in the following video.
