• 10- SELF-TESTS FOR “ADVANCED” CLIMBERS:ADVANTAJES AND CONSIDERATIONS

    If you have enough climbing and training experience as a male climber, you may be performing at a high level (from 8a+ upwards, sport climbing; or 7c FB bouldering) so, it could be said that you are an ELITE climbing boy (according to science – link here).
