Welcome to the largest - most comprehensive - collection of instructional rock climbing videos! ClimbingTechTips (CTT) focuses on rock climbing education, competency, and community. Our ad-free video platform provides step-by-step instructions and mentorship for Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced climbers. We have created more than 250 skill-building videos, across all indoor and outdoor categories, with supporting information written into the descriptions. Each CTT video (and written synopsis) focuses on a particular skill. Need-to-know information is concisely presented, while also tying into the larger skill sets. All videos feature climbing experts and professional guides. Additional videos are added regularly. Discussions and additional resources are found in our comments section, as well as on our main site ClimbingTechTips.com
Our Bouldering series offers a combination of CTT videos for both indoor and outdoor bouldering. Let's crush!
Bouldering is one of the purest forms of climbing. It is also a great starting point. No ropes. No waiting for a belay. Just climbing shoes, climbing chalk, and a crash pad. The focus is on movement and physicality.
This Bouldering video series should be used in conjunction with our Climbing Movement series. Subtle improvements in technique and biomechanics help us steadily graduate through the bouldering grades. A healthy dose of common sense helps us improve safety, and outdoor ethics help us "Leave No Trace". The goal is to have fun, incrementally improve, and enjoy climbing for a lifetime.
Let's get started! Our Bouldering video series is below. Be careful, and have fun!
