    Madeleine Crane - Climbing Psychology

    Madeleine Crane from Climbing Psychology is on the podcast today. In our chat we get into the dynamics of men and women in the climbing scene and why it can be hard for some people to step up and climb to their full potential. We discuss positive and negative self-talk and how we can reframe when things don’t go to plan. We also jump into visualisation, the positive outcomes of a bit of friendly competition and dealing with dips in motivation.

Frothing about climbing!!

I’m under no illusions that I will ever get up a climb that is graded with a 3 as the first number (I might be able to punch it out if it is the only number in the grade). So it is a privilege to hear from those who can do so and about a side of the sport that I’m not involved in.

The hosts Tom and Amanda are very generous to their interviewees who themselves are both interesting, engaging and kind. But through it all you can feel the flame of passion for climbing.

Keep frothing!
