When I'm rock climbing, I don't wear gloves because you need to have sensitivity through your fingers. However, when doing winter climbing or alpinism, wearing gloves is a necessity as it prevents frostbite. Transcript: "Do you wear gloves when you climb? Well, when I'm rock climbing. I definitely don't wear gloves when I was younger. I just started climbing, I found climbing very painful, my skin was always sore because I wanted to climb so much. I thought climbing the gloves would be a good idea. I tried it once I never did it again because you just lose all sensitivity through your fingers, and you really need to know what you're gripping onto when you're climbing, especially when you want to climb at your maximal level, the one exception to this. This is during winter climbing or alpinism when you're not actually having to grab ahold of holds rock or rocky protrusions, but you're actually holding onto ice axes. So the sensitivity through your hand isn't as important, therefore, you can get away with using gloves. In fact, it's actually necessity to wear gloves because if you went when I'm climbing without gloves, your fingers would fall off from frostbite."
Yes, rock climbers should consider the psychology of fear and risk when planning and executing their routes. Transcript: "Should rock climbers consider the psychology of fear and risk when planning and executing their routes? I think that everyone does. No one goes into a route saying that it's going to be safe and that there's no risk, if there is great risk and a lot of danger. So whether that's a short route, meaning a sport pitch, or a trad pitch that's short, you know, one rope length, or a long alpine or mountain route, I think that everyone does. No one's going to jump into a vat of boiling water and expect to be cool. So, yeah, I'm not sure the direction of this question, but we do."
Unparallel Rise climbing shoes are great because they can be used for a variety of different activities such as trad climbing, indoors and even harder climbs. Transcript: "Hi there, so the type of climbing shoes that I am using at the moment are the Unparallel Rise and I really like these shoes because I think they cover a whole kind of spectrum or range. They're just like that shoe that is kind of good for everything. It doesn't have one really specific purpose but it's good for trad climbing, I wear it indoors, I wear it as quite a comfy shoe but then I also wear it as a tighter shoe for climbing harder things as well."

Ac yna, efallai sesiwn gyffredin neu sesiwn gwybodaeth, oherwydd y byddwn i'n cymryd ar y ffordd o bwyswch neu bwyd ar y pryd. Ac yna efallai'n cael ei dilyn trwy rhai gyfnod o gyfnodau yoga, neu fy mod i'n dynol o ddifrifol, felly mae angen i mi wneud llawer o rhan o'r cymorth arall. Felly os ydw i'n bwysig iawn ac yn cymryd yr holl bocsau'n dda y byddwn i'n ei gynrychioli i fy ngwnaiff, byddai'n digwydd gyda sesiwn gwych o gyfnodau gyffredin a gallai'n gynnwys rhai yoga, oherwydd rwy'n hoffi yoga a dwi'n meddwl ei fod yn anhygoel i bawb. Yn ystod y cyfnod, rwy'n gobeithio y byddai'n helpus."
Not all professional climbers live in Vans, although some may choose to do so while on shorter climbing trips. The downside is that it can be tiring and draining on the body, as well as difficult to train consistently. Transcript: "Do all professional climbers live in Vans. Nope, not all professional climbers live in Vans. I definitely don't live in a van but I do have a campervan that I use for accessing climbing areas and spending a little longer time. In those areas when I have specific projects, I think a lot of climbers like to live in van because they love traveling. And spending a lot of time on the road, the downside to living in a van is it can be quite difficult at times. Times it can be quite tiring. It can be quite draining on the body for long periods of time. It often means that you are jumping from place to place. You might not have a lot of consistency in your training or be at the same climbing wall. If you're going through like a training phase, I certainly like to have phases where I'm in the van and these phases are usually when I'm on climbing trips specific trips for are relatively short period of time. Anywhere from four three, two, three to six weeks, really? I don't think that for me spending any longer than that in the van, is that good for my climbing and I prefer just to come home and, and have a bit of a rest and just train at a local climbing wall before heading out another trip in the van."
Bouldering is a form of climbing that is usually done on walls up to 4-5 meters tall without ropes and with mats for protection. It is the most physically intense form of climbing as it requires strength, power, and technique to complete. Transcript: "What is bordering bouldering is probably the most popular form of climbing? It is indoors and Outdoors. It is without ropes is usually only up to a maximum of around 4 to 5 meters in height. Although it can go above that. But that's kind of entering the sort of free sorter in you. Protect this with Matt's rather than ropes. So if you're falling off your Landing onto the Bouldering Matt's Paul during pads, we call them. It's probably the most intense form of climbing physically. It's all about how hard you can pour the most technical terrain. You can possibly imagine because the climbing is distilled to a relatively short section of wall, compared compared to sport climbing, tried climbing or a big wall climbing where you're obviously coming a lot more terrain and it's a more endurance. You know, focused element of the sport bouldering is far more strength, power and technique orientated."
