"What are you Afraid of?"
Dave MacLeod was once a shy and fearful kid who hated sport. So he is an unlikely professional rock climber and author on improvement at both the physical and mental aspects of climbing. In his lecture, Dave will explore the ideas that defined his progress to making first ascents of some of the world’s hardest rock and ice climbs and how he reflected from other climbers he’s coached and ideas from outside sport to improve his own performance. Through his climbs on the Eiger North Face, Arctic Norway and of course Scotland, Dave explains conventional ideas from sports science he rejected as unimportant and arrives at his most important ingredients for completing hard projects in climbing.
