Off the Rock Coaching & XIAN


Climbing well is not just about strength, power or adding fingerboarding. And it certainly is more than just technique too. It is time to bring together different perspectives for a more comprehensive approach to climbing better.

With a combined 20+ years climbing experience and 15+ years working in coaching, training & rehab:

Ross (aka Off the Rock Coaching) on rehab, strength, movement health and nutrition

Xian on climbing technique, tactics and mindset

Join us for regular workshops at Reading Climbing Centre.
