Excellent footlock technique

Excellent footlock technique

Richard Tregoweth - Monday, March 15, 2010



With the Official World Footlock Record Attempt adjudicated by ISA ITCC official Tom Greenwood, coming up this weekend it might be an opportune time to review your footlock technique.

Take a look at the video below of 2010 South Island Regional TCC winner Menno Kluiters in action at the footlockevent on Saturday.

Menno's footlock technique is one of the best we have seen. Most climbers use the power in their arms and end up wasting energy (and upward movement)by 'swinging' both legs out of line with the rope. Watch how Menno uses all the force generated in his legs to drive his body straight up the line - thereare some lessons to be learned here.
