Watch Climbing With a Legend / Jerry Moffatt on Training and Climbing Performance

The video featuring Jerry Moffatt, Stian Christophersen and Martin Mobråten sharing insights into training for climbing and performing at your best.

"Training for bouldering? That was ridiculous. The concept of training for bouldering was absurd." Back in the days of bouldering without crash pads, before the emergence of indoor climbing walls, complex training plans and rest days, Jerry Moffatt literally conquered the vertical world in the late ‘80s and early 90s. Here the legendary climber teams up with The Climbing Bible authors Stian Christophersen and Martin Mobråten to some insights into training for climbing and performing at your best.


JERRY MOFFATT
Born in London, GB on 18/03/1963, Moffatt is one of the world’s true climbing legends. having lived through the early days of sport climbing between the 1980’s and 1990’s, Moffatt was recognised as one of the best climbers in the world. One of the first-ever pro’s, Moffatt the ‘dominator’ excelled in various disciplines and his boulder problems in America, his difficult sport climbs in Germany and in Great Britain and his dangerous trad climbs are all legendary. As are The Face in Frankenjura, considered the world’s first 8a+ and also Liquid Ambar in Wales, one of the world’s first 8c+. Even today, Moffatt’s climbs are a hallmark for quality and extreme difficulty.
