Redpointing Skills

To climb a sport route at the very limit of your ability will take a degree of pre-practice before you finally lead the route clean. This section looks at the tactics you can employ to help you redpoint the hardest routes you can climb. Whilst some of these skills are covered elsewhere like sequence memory, the process and methods of repointing are reasonably straight forward if you cast aside a normal approach to climbing and adopt a new set of tactics. Whilst some reappoints might take as little as a couple of attempts, to truly reach your limit a redpoint ascent can take months or even years to reach the level of perfection you need for success.
