9 von 10 Kletterern machen die gleichen Fehler

Es gibt eine Vielzahl von Ratgebern, die Klettertechniken beschreiben, Tipps geben und die besten Übungen zeigen. Dennoch machen 9 von 10 Kletterern die gleichen Fehler und halten sich dadurch selbst von ihrem eigenen Fortschritt ab. Dabei handelt es sich immer um dieselben Probleme: Motivationsmangel, schlechtes Zeitmanagement und die Unfähigkeit, die eigenen technischen und taktischen Fehler zu analysieren und zu korrigieren. Oft wird zum Beispiel übermäßiges Krafttraining betrieben, während leistungshemmende Faktoren wie die Sturzangst ignoriert werden. Dieses Buch behandelt die gängigsten Fehler beim Klettern und präsentiert Methoden, die nicht nur zur Verbesserung der Klettertechnik beitragen, sondern dem Kletterer auch helfen, am Felsen souveräne Entscheidungen zu treffen und sich auf das Wichtigste zu konzentrieren. Dave MacLeod hat seine 16-jährige Erfahrung als Kletterer auf Weltklasseniveau, Sportwissenschaftler und renommierter Trainer in diesen Ratgeber gesteckt, der jedem Kletterer helfen wird, über sich hinauszuwachsen. »Dave MacLeod zeigt eine erfrischend andere Betrachtungsweise des Trainings und Kletteralltags. Profitieren kann davon jeder – egal ob Anfänger oder Profi –, der gewillt ist, Einbahnstraßen zu verlassen und an seinen Schwächen zu arbeiten.« Dr. med. Volker Schöffl, Sportorthopädie Klinikum Bamberg »Wer die Grundlagen hat und wirklich durchstarten will, für den gibt es keine Alternative auf dem Buchmarkt. Absolut empfehlenswert – besonders für ambitionierte Kletterer.« »Definitiv ein Buch, das aus dem Standardschema fällt – das lohnt sich!« »Die Fehler, die Dave MacLeod beschreibt, mögen simpel klingen. Doch wer es schafft, sie zu vermeiden, wird ein völlig neues Leistungsniveau erreichen – unabhängig vom Schwierigkeitsgrad. Äußerst lesenswert!«

This is a comprehensive, full-colour manual providing a complete reference for climbers of every level and discipline. It covers all the skills, safety issues and equipment necessary for the key climbing disciplines: mountains, bouldering and climbing walls, summer climbing, winter climbing, big wall and expedition climbing. This exciting book is extensively illustrated throughout, with practical diagrams as well as inspirational and instructive photographs covering everything from the basic saftey, equipment and techniques to advanced-level mountaineering on some of the world's toughest ascents. The basic skills includes fundamental information on the necessary technical equipment, from harness, rock boots and ropes to slings, karabiners and belay devices. There is a detailed section on different types of knots with clear diagrams to exemplify each. The technical skills section gives comprehensive information on abseiling with diagrams and photographs, plus various emergency procedures that all climbers and mountaineers should know. The natural ability to climb is in all of us, it is getting it out on to the surface and refining it into a useful skill that is the trick. Pete Hill explains how to move on rock with the various handholds, footholds and specific climbing techniques, he shows the attractions of bouldering, and the importance of chalk as part of a boulderer's arsenal, and finally Pete discusses the various types of climbing walls. The summer section of the book details everything you need to know about traditional climbing, considered by many as the purest form of the sport, as well as sport climbing, and Via Ferratas which are well suited for families new to climbing. The Winter section covers avalanches, ice climbing and snow shelters, as well as step kicking, step cutting and crampon techniques. For the more advanced climbers and mountaineers, the Alpine Climbing, Big wall climbing and expedition sections of the book will provide you with ideas, equipment information, techniques, advice on how to overcome any problems and scenarios to get your adrenaline racing. The Appendices provides essential and useful information on the various climbing grades worldwide, as well as factors and forces. It is one of very few books on the market that is so comprehensive, internationally relevant and covers so many different types of climbing. It is written by Pete Hill (MIC, FRGS), an experienced and highly-regarded author and climbing instructor. Pete is author of the bestselling 'Mountain Skills Training Handbook' and 'The International Handbook of Technical Mountaineering'. He has led mountaineering expeditions to the Indian and Nepalese Himalaya, and was leader of an international expedition to Kashmir which made the first ascents of three previously unclimbed peaks.

If you are new to climbing, you will find games which introduce some essential skills (such as 'crimping' a hold - Chapter 10). If you are an old hand, you will find some great games to help add variety to your weekly club sessions (have you tried 'The Octopus'? - Chapter 6). Playing some of these games can become addictive as your friends and rivals find new ways to play. The overview of skills used in each game will help you turn play into progress. Each chapter deals with a fundamental climbing technique. Some chapters focus on a particular aspect of a climbing session, e.g. the use of foot or handholds, traversing or roped climbing. You can pick and choose activities from each chapter to suit your session and goals. Each chapter begins with a brief introduction, followed by a list of all the activities within that section along with their learning goals. The games are listed in a random order. Many of the games develop more than one aspect of climbing. To help you make the most of them, icons appear beside each title to give you information about the possible ways they can be used at a glance.

Als Ehemann und Vater von vier Söhnen weiß Unternehmensberater Patrick Lencioni aus eigener leidvoller Erfahrung, wie ein stressiges Familienleben aussieht - doch viel wichtiger noch: Er weiß, wie man effektiv damit umgeht. In Lencionis neuer Leadership-Fabel gibt es ein Wiedersehen mit Jude Cousins, dem jungen, aufstrebenden Consultant aus dem Buch Silos, Politik und Grabenkämpfe. An seinem Beispiel erfahren wir, wie schon einige einfache und praktische Werkzeuge ohne großen zeitlichen Aufwand helfen, weniger Stress und dafür mehr Übersichtlichkeit und Freude in das Familienleben zu bringen. Ein ernsthaftes Strategie-Meeting zwischen Windeln und Abwasch? Es mag etwas seltsam erscheinen, Management-Tools und Geschäftslösungen auf das Privatleben zu übertragen. Doch es lohnt sich! Schließlich ist die Familie auch nichts anderes als eine Organisation, und zwar die wichtigste in unserem Leben!

Sicherheit und Risiko in Fels und Eis

Band 2

Author: Pit Schubert

Publisher: Bergverlag Rother GmbH

ISBN: 9783763360185


Page: 320

View: 3973

Pit Schuberts Reihe »Sicherheit und Risiko in Fels und Eis« ist ein wahrer Klassiker. In drei Bänden beschreibt er Erlebnisse und Ergebnisse aus der alpinen Unfall- und Sicherheitsforschung und hat damit sicher schon viele Bergsteiger davor bewahrt, fatale Fehler zu begehen, für die andere zuvor oft mit ihrer Gesundheit oder gar ihrem Leben bezahlt haben. In Band II kommen insbesondere »Klettersteige« und alles, was damit in Zusammenhang steht, ausführlich zur Sprache – zusätzlich zu den Themen Wandern, Hochtouren und Klettern, die ebenfalls wieder einen hohen Stellenwert haben. Außerdem werden den Bergsteigern, Fels- und Eiskletterern Forschungsergebnisse des Sicherheitskreises des Deutschen Alpenvereins zugänglich gemacht. Pit Schuberts Credo ist: Aus Unfällen lernen. Er beschreibt viele außergewöhnliche, mitunter fast exotisch anmutende Unfälle, mit dem Ziel, andere von Ähnlichem abzuhalten. In sachlich-trockenem Ton, mit einer Prise Bergsteiger-Galgenhumor gewürzt, hat Schubert ein ungemein spannend zu lesendes wie auch lehrreiches Kompendium zusammengestellt. Dass die Begebenheiten nicht nur tragisch, sondern oft auch erheiternd sind, untermalen die pointierten Karikaturen von Georg Sojer. Ein wichtiges Werk auf dem alpinen Büchermarkt, das in keiner Bergsteigerbibliothek fehlen sollte!

Die Besteigung des Rum Doodle

»Die Besteigung des Rum Doodle« ist eine grandiose Bergsteigersatire aus den 50er Jahren, die niemals auf Deutsch erschienen ist. Das Buch genießt Kultstatus in Alpinistenkreisen und führte sogar dazu, dass ein ganzer Berg in der Antarktis »Rum Doodle« getauft wurde. Erzählt wird die abenteuerliche Geschichte einer Expedition, bei der so gut wie alles schief geht. Der Expeditionsleiter, ein ehrgeiziger und nicht zu beirrender Herr, ist mit der Zusammenstellung eines geeigneten Teams beauftragt. Er rekrutiert sieben sehr britische Gentlemen. Doch bald zeigt sich, dass keiner von ihnen seiner Aufgabe gewachsen ist. Der Navigator findet trotz Einsatz eines Kompasses nicht zum Ort der Vorbesprechung in London. Der Arzt ist ständig krank. Der Hauptkletterer leidet an Antriebslosigkeit. Die Qualitäten des Kochs spotten jeder Beschreibung. Der Übersetzer versteht die Sprache der Einheimischen nicht, und es werden 30 000 statt 3 000 Träger engagiert. Ein Missgeschick jagt das nächste und am Ende, na klar, haben sie den falschen Berg bestiegen.

Some books address outdoor leadership; others focus on adventure programming. None delve into the specifics of both topics like Effective Leadership in Adventure Programming, Third Edition, does.

The text extends the focus on evidence-based models, theories, and best practices, showing that science and research are as important to the profession as the natural beauty of the environment. The book describes the core competencies of outdoor leadership, providing a framework that helps leaders connect with participants in meaningful ways, based on mutual goals. The focus on the science side is invaluable to new leaders and less-experienced leaders, and it is a great refresher for leaders with more experience. This new edition offers a more detailed look at diversity and cultural competencies, preparing leaders to effectively manage diverse populations of participants. In addition, the content is in line with the updated accreditation standards from the Association for Experiential Education. The opening chapters of Effective Leadership in Adventure Programming supply a solid foundation in the research, philosophy, ethics, and history of outdoor leadership. Numerous chapters explore the skills leaders need, with topics that include technical activity, safety and risk management, environment, organization, instruction, and facilitation. The authors also examine leadership styles and conditional leadership issues, communication, sound judgment, decision making, problem solving, and the trends and issues in adventure programming. Effective Leadership in Adventure Programming will help readers understand the four adventure program areas—recreation, education, development, and therapy—and how they influence the delivery of outdoor leadership. The book is a valuable resource for the training and education of future outdoor leaders. It will help readers know why they should work in the profession and understand how they can make a difference by being an effective outdoor leader.

A huge draw on the "2013 National Geographic Live" lecture series, the author shares the passion that led to her world record in mountaineering - First woman-and only the fourth climber ever-to summit all fourteen 8,000-meter peaks without supplemental oxygen or high-altitude porters - Though the two climbers are friends, Kaltenbrunner's path to high places has been very different from Edurne Pasaban's record-breaking feat - Positive, uplifting account of a remarkable athleteEffusive, charismatic, tough, Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner is one of the world's most successful high-altitude mountaineers and the first woman to climb all fourteen 8,000-meter peaks without supplemental oxygen-and she also eschews high-altitude porters. Mountains of My Heart covers her early years learning to climb in Austria, her personal life, her training as an oncology nurse, and her ever-present passion for mountains, especially the Himalaya. Her love of being in the mountains shines through in her writing: For Gerlinde the important thing was not the race to be the first woman to climb the 8,000-meter peaks, but rather to experience the mountains and climb them in her self-sufficient style. Self-sufficiency did not, however, mean climbing without her husband, Ralf Dujmovits; in 2009, Lhotse became her twelfth and his fourteenth 8,000-meter peak! Kaltenbrunner shares the challenges, dangers, and euphoria of her high-altitude climbs, detailing medical emergencies and her own feelings about being high in the mountains. Her writing is honest, captivating, and unrestrained.
