Article excerpt: Although it agreed that rock climbing is a challenge sport it can also be considered an art. This almost graceful element is obvious when one compares the way that an experienced climber seems to effortlessly glide across the rock face. The reason for this apparent ease is that he or she has mastered the techniques of the rock climbing craft. The real question of course is to understand how these expert climbers have improved their rock climbing technique. Perhaps surprisingly, improving rock climbing techniques is not simply a matter of making physical changes. It is also, as will be seen, as much a mental adjustment.
