Learn how to climb above your physical limit with Adam Ondra’s first-ever climbing course

From the Altitude Team
Oslo, Norway & Los Angeles, USA

Adam Ondra is widely considered the world’s best climber.

And the sheer volume of his accomplishments leaves little doubt.

He was the first climber to climb a 9b+ (5.15c), the first climber to climb a 9c (5.15d), the only climber to flash a 9a+ (5.15a), and he has climbed more than 1,700 routes rated 8a (5.13b) or higher.

Which is miles ahead of anyone else.

Lead-Climbing-Signup-6-Number-of-routes--Mobile@2x

Yet, Adam isn’t the world’s most powerful climber.

He doesn’t have the strongest fingers.

He is not the most flexible climber.

He doesn’t have the strongest core (he admitted in an interview that he cannot do a front lever).

He doesn’t have the best endurance in the world.

And, his physical therapist once said that “Adam climbs well above his physical limit.”

So what allows Adam to climb so much harder than his body would let us to believe?

How Adam Ondra climbs harder than he “should”

Adam says that “in climbing, power should always be secondary.”

Of course, once you get into the higher grades, power does become more and more important.

But it’s not so much about how much power you have. It’s about how well you can use it.

In fact, you can climb most 7a or 5.12a routes without being able to do a single pull-up.

And no matter at which level you are, you likely already have all the power and finger strength you need to climb several grades above your current limit.

Once you start working on the right things, and learn how to effectively transfer your power onto the wall, routes that feel “impossible” to you right now actually become doable and you’ll begin to unlock your untapped potential.

Lead-Climbing-Signup-7-Adam-Ondra-Mobile-II

The three “skills” to climb higher grades without getting stronger

There are three distinct “skills” that allow Adam to climb above his physical limit.

In talking about it, Adam would repeat again and again:

“People look at me and think ‘ah he’s just talented – it’s not fair.’ But they don’t really understand that all the skills that make me a good climber are trainable.”

Working on these skills will allow you to:

  • Get the most out of the strength you already have (and prevent it from being your limiting factor)
  • Turn hard moves into easy ones, by making small micro adjustments you never considered before
  • Get less pumped, and make every move on the wall easier (increasing your endurance and helping you send harder routes)

Most importantly, once you learn them, they stay with you forever.

They present the biggest “untapped potential” for most climbers and they don’t take years to learn and apply to your climbing. Once you begin learning and working on them, you’ll climb better within a few sessions.

Here they are:

1. Micro Adjustments

When Adam was a kid, he was weaker and shorter than most of his peers.

But because he wanted to climb all the routes he could, he worked tirelessly to find new beta that suited him and worked through crux moves that should have been “impossible” for him.

From climbing competitions to spending months and months at the crag, he developed a deep understanding of climbing technique.

Adam doesn’t really have a bigger repertoire of techniques compared to other climbers, but he has mastered the nuances and the necessary micro adjustments that make these techniques actually effective.

For example, Adam would explain that, when you kneebar, it’s not the length of your leg but simply the angle of your ankle that allows you to exert the most power.

Or, when crimping, your fingers should scrape the wall and you should use the whole surface of the hold you have available – having that right placement is way more important than how hard you can pull.

Many intermediate to advanced climbers already know all the techniques, but it’s these micro adjustments that allow them to actually use them effectively.

Once you learn these and get on the wall, the moves that felt impossible suddenly start to feel doable.

The moves that tired you out now get you less pumped.

And you feel your strength is actually transferring to the wall.

Make “hard” moves feel easy through subtle micro adjustments
Make “hard” moves feel easy through subtle micro adjustments

2. Efficiency

Adam defines climbing efficiency not as climbing the route with minimal effort, but with minimal fatigue – another subtle distinction.

And, Adam learned early on that many “climbing rules” aren’t always the most efficient way of climbing.

For example, one of the first things you learn when you start climbing is that you should be precise with your feet… But Adam thinks it’s more nuanced than that.

In many cases, finding the most precise foot placement is far too inefficient, because it takes too much time… Instead, you just want to be precise enough.

Another example of a common rule is always having three points of contact on the wall. It’s a rule that’s great to follow when you first start climbing, but you might have to learn when to abandon it if you want to efficiently climb routes above your current limit.

There is also no “one” efficient way to climb.

Many climbers have tried “mimicking” Adam’s fast-paced approach only to realize that they just got pumped faster.

What is efficient for Adam might not be efficient for you.

During the coaching sessions in our climbing course, Adam has shown repeatedly that he has an uncanny ability to quickly assess what other climbers with varying body types and styles of climbing could do in any given situation to preserve energy and move more efficiently.

And, once you learn to identify the ways you’re currently climbing inefficiently and replace them with more efficient ways, you’ll be able to last longer on the wall, avoid getting pumped, as well as climb through the pump once you approach your limit.

This new-found endurance will be the key to sending pumpy routes, as well as having enough energy in the tank for the crux sections, when it matters most.

Improve your endurance by improving your efficiency
Improve your endurance by improving your efficiency

3. Intuition

This is the skill that helped Adam onsight and flash more hard routes than any other climber on earth (and it’s not even close).

And, according to Adam, intuition is one of the most important skills you need to develop in order to climb your first 8a (5.13b) and beyond.

Climbing intuitively means climbing without second-guessing yourself, hesitating, or having doubts.

Yet, intuition sounds for many like something you’re born with.

And of course, some climbers start with better intuition than others. But intuition is not something that you either have or you don’t.

Adam says so himself:

Intuition is the most efficient and powerful decision-maker that you have. You have to train this intuition. I think intuition is often perceived as something that you’re given – you either have the talent or not. But this is the completely wrong perception. It is trainable.

You can intentionally and strategically train your climbing intuition.

Adam worked so hard to develop climbing intuition that he is now able to teach the process to others.

Improving your climbing intuition and learning to trust it, will allow you to more quickly determine the right beta and climb with more confidence and commitment, and less fear and hesitation.

Climb intuitively, confidently, and without hesitation
Climb intuitively, confidently, and without hesitation

These three skills present the biggest untapped potential for most climbers. In combination, they’ll allow you to climb much harder routes with more confidence and ease, and without the need to get stronger!

Luckily for us, Adam is incredibly good at teaching each of them.

And it’s exactly what we were able to capture in his first-ever course.

However, we weren’t always so sure if it would work. And at the beginning, the big question was:

Lead-Climbing-Signup-12-Adam-Ondra-Desktop
Lead-Climbing-Signup-12-Adam-Ondra-Mobile

Does an online climbing course actually work?

Rewind back to the summer of 2023.

We met Adam during the World Championship in Bern. Sitting outside a climbing gym between training sessions, we talked about our idea.

Could we distill Adam’s knowledge into an online course, allowing anyone to learn from Adam? And could we actually do it in a way that’s effective and improves people’s climbing?

Adam was ready to give it a shot.

And he, too, felt there was a chance to create something that hadn’t been done before.

Over the coming six months, Adam worked closely with our team. Writing and rewriting outlines. Thinking through the best ways to teach something. And planning each lesson, demonstration, and coaching session. Adam approached the development of this course with the same dedication and attention to detail as he approaches his climbing.

He wanted the course to be the best way to share everything that he learned over the 25 years of climbing, and it was our mission to help him make that happen.

Once the outline and flow were perfect, and everyone was happy with it, we began filming.

We filmed the course over five full days, in multiple climbing gyms and climbing crags, to make sure Adam had plenty of time and space to not just teach, but also demonstrate, give feedback on, and answer the questions about the things he talked about.

Additionally, we invited 10 climbers of levels from 6b+ (5.10d) to 8c (5.14b) to climb with Adam, each of them with different strengths, challenges, and body types, to make sure as many climbers as possible would be able to find themselves in one climber or another.

And the result was so far beyond anything we initially hoped for.

In short…

Lead-Climbing-Signup-13-Adam-Ondra-Desktop
Lead-Climbing-Signup-13-Adam-Ondra-Mobile

Adam delivered!

Adam managed to distill his climbing experience into simple, actionable principles and teach it effectively.

Throughout the week, we could see the skills of the climbers that Adam was coaching transform right in front of our eyes.

Even though many of them were attempting to climb harder routes than ever before, it didn’t look that way.

Two of the climbers even ended up flashing their first 7a (5.11d) on the rock – and it seemed like it wasn’t even on their limit (we filmed it, so you’ll be able to see for yourself).

When one of our team members watched the course (he didn’t climb with Adam himself), his climbing coach was utterly confused by how much his climbing had improved between sessions.

When we checked in with the climbers that climbed with Adam, weeks after we filmed the course, they told us about how much their climbing has transformed.

They reported a new-found confidence, endurance, and flow on the wall.

These helped them climb harder grades than ever before, whether it’s onsighting their first 7b (5.12b), redpointing their first 7b+ (5.12c), or even climbing their first two 7A (V6) outdoor boulder problems in a single session.

And, we’re confident Adam’s course will do the same for you.

If you go through the course you’ll begin to make the small adjustments that allow you to transfer your power onto the wall, you’ll climb more efficiently than ever, and begin to trust yourself and climb with more confidence and conviction.

And, when you next climb with your climbing partners, don’t be surprised if they ask you “When did you get so strong!?

We’ve now seen this happen over and over again.

And it might just be the key to unlocking the path to climbing your "dream grades" – whether that's climbing your first 7a, 8a, 5.12, 5.13, or a grade far beyond that...

And with this, we’d like to share with you Adam Ondra’s first-ever climbing course.

Lead-Climbing-Signup-15-Adam-Odra-Mobile

Adam Ondra
Teaches Lead Climbing

A course designed to help you climb harder routes without the need to get stronger.

Lead-Climbing-Signup--Course@2x

In over 50 detailed lessons spread across 7 modules, Adam shows you how you can climb harder without the need to get stronger – both outdoors and indoors.

Using his 25+ of elite climbing experience, Adam teaches you how to climb more efficiently and with more confidence than ever before.

Our Three-Step Teaching
Framework

In the initial preparation period, we spent a lot of time working through various formats to make the course as effective as possible. In the end, the course was carefully crafted using the following three-step framework:

Teaching: Adam explains his philosophy, principles, and the way he thinks about different climbing skills and techniques to trigger new “a-ha” moments in your brain. He also answers questions from climbers about alternate approaches and scenarios.

Demonstrating: Adam demonstrates everything himself and walks you through all the nuances, showing you how to perform different techniques in different ways, and explains which ways are most efficient in different situations.

Coaching: Adam works with climbers at different levels, with different climbing styles to help them adjust their technique, gives them feedback, and addresses their specific strengths and weaknesses – so you can see how to apply his advice according to your own climbing style.

Using this practical framework, you’ll be able to easily apply Adam’s advice to your own climbing on the wall – as everything Adam shares is easy to understand and implement.

Here’s what you’ll learn inside
Adam’s course

Here’s an overview of what we’ll cover:

  • Synovial Warm-Up: Adam’s contagious warm-up routine that helps you optimally warm up your joints and muscles for hard climbing
  • Developing Confidence: Practical ways to become more confident on the wall and overcome fear of falling (it’s about much more than just taking practice falls)
  • Injury Prevention: The single most important thing you should do to prevent injuries that stall your progression (it’s not what you think)
  • Advanced Climbing Gear Recommendations: Subtle tips for choosing the right climbing shoes, quickdraws, and rope to perform on the wall (that you likely haven’t considered yet)

  • Body Positioning: Why this climbing concept is often misinterpreted (and how to start using it in a better way to climb more efficiently)
  • Maximizing Friction: How to master “active” and “passive” grip types, and maximize your friction in different situations (sharp holds, polished holds, different rock types, and in the gym)
  • Effective Gripping and Pulling: Subtle hand positioning micro adjustments you can use to effectively pull on crimps, pinches, slopers, pockets, side-pulls, and underclings
  • Thumb Power: Intricate ways of using your thumbs to maximize your pulling power and grip strength

  • Fine-Tune Your Footwork: The micro adjustments that you can use to perfect your foot swaps, smearing, precision, stepping on slopers, and footwork in overhanging terrain
  • Skin Management: The most reliable strategy for saving your skin (and the one thing you should stop doing to do so)

Module 4: Advanced Movement Technique

Master the technique nuances that only pros know about

  • Rockovers: Master the most common technique you will ever use on the wall to climb with minimal use of power and unlock no-hand rests (even on steep terrain)
  • Heel Hooks: Subtle changes you can make in your heel hooking technique to stop struggling with them and stop getting so pumped in overhanging routes
  • Toe Hooks: When to use toe hooks as “the third hand on the wall” instead of heel hooks, find optimal toe hook placements and body positions, and “break the beta” on slopers and volumes
  • Flagging: The flagging mechanics are much more complex than most climbers realize – learn in which situations you should use inside and outside flags instead of hip rotation and foot swaps, and get a deep understanding of efficient body positions and foot placements
  • Lock-offs and Arm Swings: How to make the choice between static and dynamic movements (according to route style and your own predispositions), and leverage momentum on the wall to improve your efficiency
  • Drop Knees: Learn why there is more to drop knees than you think, understand the right foot placements and knee rotations, and learn when to use them based on your body type and flexibility
  • Knee Bars: Master all the small details with unprecedented depth that will take you from a “bad knee barrer” to a “good knee barrer” within a few minutes (this actually happened on set with one of our climbers)

Module 5: Climbing Efficiency, Flow and Intuition

Stop “pumping out” on the wall
Stop “pumping out” on the wall
  • Finding Flow: How to train yourself to achieve efficient movement patterns that help you effectively transfer your power onto the wall (and why without the right flow, even perfect technique doesn’t help you much in your climbing)
  • Tension and Relaxation: Practical strategies for creating the right amount of tension and relaxation in easy and challenging terrain (it’s not just about how hard the moves are and how steep the wall is)
  • Pump Management: The scientific reason why we get pumped (and multiple ways to minimize the pump or flash pump on the wall)
  • Climbing Through the Pump: How to adjust your climbing once you do get pumped to be able to climb through it, and how not to give up once you barely feel your arms any more
  • Pacing Strategies: How to know when to climb fast and when to climb slow (according to the steepness, difficulty of terrain, and grip types), and develop an ideal pace for your body type and climbing style
  • Resting Nuances: Understand why you shouldn’t always rest on extended arms, when you should choose to rest, when you should intentionally skip rests, as well as different resting strategies (shaking positions, micro-shakes, and mental rests)
  • Developing Intuition: Specific ways in which you can train (and learn to trust) your climbing intuition so you stop hesitating on the wall and make every second count
  • Training Efficiency: How to find out what is efficient for you (even though it might not be efficient for your friends), develop your own unique efficiency profile, and train your efficiency
  • Efficient Clipping: How to become more confident in your clipping, as well as advanced clipping strategies (taking into consideration quickdraw orientation, steepness of the terrain, clipping positions, and potential of big falls)

Module 6: Onsighting, Redpointing, and Projecting

Climb at your best when it matters most
Climb at your best when it matters most
  • Route Observation: How to read the beta on the route and analyze “the language of chalk” and “the language of rubber” (this goes much deeper than just observing the hand holds and foot holds)
  • Visualization: Different visualization strategies you can use to memorize sequences, optimize your climbing efficiency, and develop your climbing intuition (and how to train them)
  • Engaging Send Mode: Different ways in which you can put yourself into the right state of mind to climb confidently, intuitively, efficiently, and with full commitment and no hesitation
  • Onsighting Strategies: Learn how Adam is able to onsight the routes that should be “impossible” to onsight and increase your onsighting grade limit
  • Redpointing Strategies: How to efficiently “work” the route to send it within a couple of tries, and how you should switch your climbing approach when you’re “trying” the route compared to your “send go”
  • Projecting Strategies: Everything you need to know about projecting your routes at your absolute physical and technical limit that helps you send the hardest routes your body is capable of sending, through an 8b/+ (5.13d/5.14a) projecting coaching session

Watch A Short Compilation
From The Climbers On Set…

Each of these climbers was handpicked for their unique climbing abilities so you’ll find at least one climber similar to you in the course.

We had both men and women, with varying levels of climbing experience, strength, endurance, flexibility, climbing styles and weaknesses.

What they had in common is that each climber had subtle, intricate questions for Adam and they were all intermediate to advanced climbers (climbing between 6b+ and 8c). Most are climbing much higher grades now, just a few months later. After climbing with Adam just for a few days, two of them flashed their first 7a, one onsighted their first 7a, and one made more progress on their 8b/+ project than they imagined they could in a single coaching session (and we filmed it all to show you exactly how they did it).

Here’s what they had to say about the experience:

In addition, dozens of climbers who joined the course also left really lovely written reviews. You can read some of them below.

What students are saying about the course…

“Great course, I have been climbing for 20+ years but still learned a lot of new things and got inspiration to reevaluate aspects I was previously aware of.”

- Claus L., climbing for 20+ years, 5.11d to 5.13a / 7a to 7c+

“The course gives a lot of know-how which is not possible to learn from amateur climbers or coaches. As a very experienced climber (>30 years), I already knew a lot about technique and tactics, but there were a lot of blind spots which I was able to identify and improve thanks to Adam's lessons.”

- Steven K., climbing for 30+ years, 5.13b / 8a or higher

“The course is very well done. As an intermediate climber (v6, 5.12b), it helped me with a lot of details that improved my climbing quite a bit. Learning from Adam is an amazing opportunity and something of a dream years ago. Imagine Michael Jordan or Kobe teaching you how to improve your game. Incredible.”

 - Jeff P., climbing for 10+ years, 5.11d to 5.13a / 7a to 7c+

“Adam is the best climber in the world and doesn't seem physically the strongest. I thought this course would be suited to me because I was looking for ways to become a better climber without having to make major strength gains. I feel this course provided that and kept a good perspective on what climbing should be. While beginners/intermediate climbers would benefit the most from this course, as an advanced climber I had a lot of takeaways. During the course, I was mentally struggling on red-pointing my first 8b+/5.14a. I have since sent that route and a few other short-term projects.”

- Jo D., climbing for 5+ years, 5.13b / 8a or higher

“Adam is authentically sharing his practically lifelong experience… useful for climbers of any experience level. Even as a beginner, I can adjust almost every hint to my practice. I appreciate having access to all the small details and nuances that can help me enjoy climbing even more.”

- Kamila H., beginner climber

Questions and Answers about Adam’s Lead Climbing Course

Lead-Climbing-Signup-44-Adam-Ondra-Desktop
Lead-Climbing-Signup-44-Adam-Ondra-Mobile

Is Adam’s course right for you?

Adam’s course was designed for intermediate to advanced climbers, but it’s suitable for (almost) everyone who wants to get better at climbing.

  • If you are an intermediate to advanced climber who climbs between 6b (5.10c) and 8a (5.13b): This course is perfect for you. It was built with you in mind, and most of the climbers on set are on your level.
  • If you already climb beyond 8a (5.13b): This course can help you work on the small details that you need to hone to climb above your physical limit. We showed the content of this course to two elite, 9a climbers and climbing coaches and they both found new ideas in it that they didn’t think of before.
  • If you are an ambitious beginner to intermediate climber who climbs 6a+ (5.10b) and below: This course can be the perfect foundation for your lead climbing career and can help you avoid many mistakes, injuries, and lost time down the line. Note that this is not a beginner course and we do not cover topics like belaying and lead climbing safety, but you can apply most of the principles from the course to climbing on auto-belay or top rope as well until you become comfortable with lead climbing.
  • If you are a boulderer: While this course isn’t specifically designed for bouldering, the majority of what Adam teaches in the course applies to bouldering as well. Multiple climbers that climbed with Adam unlocked new bouldering grades within a few climbing sessions (sending their first 7A / V6 boulders both indoors and outdoors). If you’re eager to learn from Adam, you are welcome to join us in the course!

At the end of the day, anyone who wants to learn to become a better climber or learn from Adam is a good fit for this course. It doesn’t matter if you prefer to lead or top rope, and if you prefer to climb indoors or outdoors.

We are confident that this course will help you improve your climbing, and if it doesn’t, we will happily return your full purchase price with our 14-Day Money Back Guarantee.

A Personal Note from Magnus Midtbø

I first met Adam Ondra at a youth climbing competition when I was 13 and he was about 9.

He was forerunning the routes we had to climb during the competition (meaning: he demonstrated the way the routes were intended to be climbed by the routesetters).

It was during one of his foreruns that his foot slipped and he fell.

I remember him being genuinely upset and frustrated about it for the remainder of the afternoon. Even though he wasn’t competing, it was clear how much getting to the top meant to him.

While it might not be the most glamorous Adam Ondra story (and Adam usually is incredibly cheerful and positive), I do still remember what an impression it made on me.

Even at such a young age, you could sense a level of commitment and passion that later on would shape him into the best climber in the world.

And now, over two decades later, I couldn’t be more honored to have Adam’s course right here on Altitude. He was the very first climber I wanted to bring on and I was thrilled that he was all-in from the very start.

This course is everything I hoped it’d be when we first approached Adam about teaching. It’s a rare chance to dive deep into the mind of a climber who’s redefined what’s possible on the rock.

It’s an opportunity to be part of something that’s not just about climbing better (which you absolutely will), but about growing this incredible sport in a whole new way.

Keep climbing,
