Feb 02, Alissa Thorne rated it really liked it Shelves: I picked up this book expecting climbing technique, and was surprised to find that it is much more closely tied to mindfulness and can be applied to any situation involving risk and action–that is to say, life.
The personal philosophy suggested by this book ties together several concepts and tools that I have encountered other places, unified in an approach to life.

While most of the concepts by themselves are hardly ground-breaking revolutions, the down-to-earth presentation applied to rroca specific and hazardous activity makes the material much more tangible.
Some of the tenants include: Before you act, each possible outcome of any risk should be clear so that you can be prepared to fully commit to both. Speak to yourself in ways that orient you towards positive action “Stay in ecsaladores vs.
Trust your preparation, your training, your intuition–stop thinking about it. See, most of that doesn’t sounds all that exciting boiled down into simple statements like that. But when described in the context of how it applies when you’re hanging off a cliff by your fingernails, it packs a bigger punch. And I must say, there are many times that my internal excuse for not applying these bits of wisdom that I already know boils down to–“sure that’s all well and good, but THIS is just too hard to apply that to”.
That excuse looks pretty flimsy when held up in this light. The writing style is amateurish and goofy, with lots of made-up lingo to describe ideas for which there are well established schools of thought.

Normally this would be a pretty big hit for me, but in this case it works in spite of it. I’ll rpca a set of my favorite highlights from the book: Better yet, be curious. Ugerreros 19, Meredith Apple rated it really liked it. While sitting or dangling with my climbing crew at the base of a climb or next pitch, the idea of climbing as a metaphor for life has come up time and again.
How we move through a climb can often mirror how we move through life. The mental aspect of climbing is often the biggest limiter. The orca of the fall, the self talk over the crux or the frustration around set backs all come into play on the wall and in day to day challenges. This book gave clear insight and ewcaladores into assessing and unders While sitting or dangling with my climbing crew at the base of a climb or next pitch, the idea of climbing as a metaphor for life has come up time and again.
This book gave clear insight and steps into assessing and understanding a deeper level of the mental game for menatl climbing. Although some of the metaphors were a bit cheesy it pointed out aspects and language that I previously had brushed over. Looking at a rock wall and other challenges has shifted. Fscaladores opportunities, not barriers. Understand each step is an opportunity to learn not a chance to fail or succeed. Highly recommended for climbers of all abilities.
For people who like to climb rocks or personal hurdles. Oct 18, Adam Block rated it really liked it. It is embarrassing how well Ilgner called out each and every one of my mental habits for returning to my comfort zone; some I had no idea existed until he poignantly threw it in my face.
He sprinkles his own personal anecdotes to help us relate to these new concepts and provides exercises and the end of the book to truly master his process before you hop on your project.
The Rock Warrior’s Way: Mental Training for Climbers
The concepts expressed in Rock Warrior’s Way are seemingly applicable to every aspect of life. This book is everything needed It is embarrassing how well Ilgner called out each and every one of my mental habits for returning to my comfort zone; some I had no idea existed until he poignantly threw it in my face. This book is everything needed to build mental fortitude; not a word more, not a word less.
Jul 30, Eryk Banatt rated it liked it. I wasn’t a huge fan of this book at first but I’ll admit I warmed up to it as I read it. Overall this book is climbing problem solving advice, intro Zen Buddhism concepts, pop psychology, and some loose climbing history all rolled up into one book.
It wasn’t the greatest book I’ve ever read but it was surprisingly motivating and I had a good time reading it. My thoughts on a few of the ideas in this book: A warrior takes responsibility for each time he gives up. To talk as if giving up was a permanent personality trait is simply a power leak. A lot of this book so far is just “things are as they are, not as you would prefer them to be” and by extension “caring about anything that isn’t ‘what is’ is merely a waste of effort in a sport where effort is a scarcely limited resource” One thing that I think I’m going to start doing in my own climbing is stop referring to holds as “bad” or say that “they suck”.
I think usually I get the picture describing the holds in that way, in that I’m referring to them as “not very positive” or “very small”, but I think the habit will likely make me approach climbs in a negative way if I let it continue that way.
Problems are problems, and the elements of a problem should be described in a way that allows me to think of how to solve them rather than my opinion of their usefulness.
The book puts a lot of emphasis on questions like “what does this climb offer me to allow me to climb it” which seems useful as a sort of shortcut for thinking about things. There was a bit about Bad Posture Wasting Energy. Points on the mental game being affected by posture, a lot of which is pretty hotly contested in psychology and is the subject of a high-profile reproducability crisis example see: Amy Cuddy’s research and criticisms.
That said I liked the bit about “Soft eyes focus” which suggests maintaining a more relaxed, nongrimacing, composed face as a cue to your body to be composed and relaxed.
On a related note, he mentions focusing on the entire field of vision which contrasts with the advice I typically hear from elite osu! This could be more because “reading” in climbing is more widely visual and less rigidly sequential compared to a rhythm game, but I thought the comparison was interesting. The author mentions listing exactly what the worst case scenario for a fall would be, which would avoid you overdramaticizing the risks involved in a fall.
This is similar to what I’ve seen in Tim Ferriss’ work, so it seemed like pretty good advice. Remember the importance of feeling challenged. Once in the thick of things on a climb, we quickly forget why we are there.
If something was supposed to be a hard problem and it turned out to be easy, no amount of convincing yourself it was actually hard because it was labeled a certain way will change the fact that, for you, it was easy.
Pushing yourself constantly is an intimately personal affair and climbing lets you confront this. I was unsure if I really like the idea of frustration suggesting that your focus has shifted to wanting things given to you, rather than dissatisfaction with yourself. I think that approaching challenges and knowing you can achieve it but falling short feels very frustrating and I don’t think that is quite the same thing as complaining that something should be easier – perhaps this is since I come from a more competitive background compared to being a relatively beginner climber but when I lose matches I know I was capable of winning it’s usually not a sentiment that suggests that I wish my opponents made worse moves so that I could win, it’s an expressing of how dissatisfied I am with my own moves and by extension my preparation.
That said I think the idea of directly modifying your internal narrative from statements like “I can’t do X” to “I know how to do Y, so how entrenamento I use this info to do X” or “What can I do to do X? Paradoxically, taking risks actually increases our safety and comfort. Sudden danger lurks everywhere—losing our jobs, being struck by a car, contracting a mortal illness.
It only serves to make dw slaves to fear and victims of con- stant anxiety. That said some stuff about this book was definitively weird and at times it veered guerreroos into preachy territory.
The anecdote about his wife wanting guerrerls food struck me as a really sort of ridiculous example for defending the etherealness of human intuition.
Bits like “Intuition is always truth. You never have faluse intutions. Falseness can only occur during interpretation of intutive messages” were flatly ridiculous and even if his general thesis as it pertains to rock climbing i. Overall though I got a lot of enjoyment out of this book, and the buddhist vibes I got from it was a lot less ridiculous than I initially expected them to be – climbing is ultimately something you do for fun, but it’s so easy to allow yourself to not feel the fun as it is actually happening.
As cliche as it might sound, existing in the moment is so important, especially when the whole point of your activity is to have as good of a time as possible. You were only partially present at the scene of the climb. You were climbing in order to be finished climbing.
Now that you are finished climbing, it is as if you never really climbed. Dodging the facts hinders real learning. Your performance, whatever it was, was the best it could have been at the time. Phys- ical strength, your technical skill, your ability to focus your mind, your level of motivation, and many other factors all contribute to per- formance. You pretend in order to dull the dis- appointment of a substandard performance.
This drains attention from the effort itself, reducing your effectiveness. It is your act guerreross giving. Without giving, learning or growth is not possible. The exer- cise becomes rote and motivation drops.
As you enter a climbing challenge, make sure you expect to make an enternamiento.
