examination type or homework style.
« on: June 24, 2014, 03:48:05 PM »
when a child go to school, he can be test in two way: 1- examination is a formal test of a person's knowledge...you climb a route and you know all the move. So, you can show off every body that you have the knowledge. If an hold broke as you climb...not your fault. You do your homework: you did every move separately to complete realisation

2- research: systematic investigation into and study of materials and sources in order to establish facts and reach new conclusions... you climb a route and know nothing about it. You study the pattern of fracture of the rock and examine the holds and how you can climb it. You make assumption to where you are going to rest and protect the climb. You establish sequences of movement and try to do it. I conclude that I can climb similar route every where in the words, or that I have to practice a little bit more some technique

Personally, I prefer research than following the bla bla bla of a good teacher. I prefer to test my capacity while climbing. Unfortunately, I need some times to listen to holder climber that resolve the problem before me. I don't have to reinvent the wheel. But I learn it as technique that I can use every where , not as some thing that I have to do to climb a particular route.


do you prefer to do practice for an exam or to do a research?

I prefer method 3: listen to nobody, bang my head against the wall, then rinse and repeat.

Contradictions abound

“bla bla bla” is how you hear solid advice

Everyone should pay attention.... there is real artwork here. Notice how, in this totally unrelated post, Luke still manages to slip in a dig against tradman... brilliant.

This is a man who is at the top of his game.
