    I’m considering setting up a video camera on a tripod and recording my self ice climbing as a means of self-assessment and self-improvement. I want to know if anyone else has done this and if so how did it go?

    I figure that pro athletes in move conventional sports like basketball review their game day footage. Its painfully obvious to me when I watch new ice climbers how there movement economy sucks… on the other end of the spectrum I climb with a few really good ice climbers that seem to “float,” not because they’re that much stronger than me (they’re not) but because their movement economy is 1000x better than mine.

    This is the best ice climbing technique critique I’ve seen online, Will Gadd commenting on a client (who wasn’t climbing badly, just not as efficient). I learned a ton just by _watching_ the video. I’m sure you can get more by videoing yourself with self-diagnosis or with the “floating” ice climbers’ help 🙂
