Description

Climbing your Best.. This may mean your hardest, but it is really about maximizing your enjoyment and the depth of your experience.

This course is filled with insights and advice on how to feel and perform your best-- finding more consistency and success while continuing to develop your abilities.

Tyler had the privilege of climbing a lot from a very early age, and was exposed to many of the top British climbers while they were developing new ways and perspectives on training. A lot of this course is passing on their great knowledge, as well as a lot of things he has been fortunate enough to pick up while climbing with brilliant people all over the world.

This is not just another video with beautiful visuals of hard climbs, nor is it just another video showing strong climbers performing hard exercises. This is an attempt at sharing what Tyler has learned over eighteen years of climbing that may help you discover how to climb your best.

Note from the course producer Scott Moraes: While climbing with Tyler I noticed there was something very different about the way he climbed— it wasn't just pure strength, better coordination, or sheer will power, It seemed like there was a whole other world behind his abilities and I very much wanted to learn from him.

As climbing and teaching are my chief passions in life, I began interviewing Tyler over the course of a few months and began to brainstorm a documentary that we both felt could be valuable for other climbers to improve their skills and success.

This project has brought me tremendous satisfaction and was an honor to work with and learn from Tyler. I can directly attest to seeing dramatic results by integrating his insights into my climbing approach. And while it may not work for everyone. I very much hope Tyler's insights, tips, and strategies help you experience more pleasure and fulfillment from your climbing. As a passionate and active climber, this has been invaluable for me.

Tyler Landman is one of the most insightful and talented climbers in the world, with a comprehensive climbing philosophy and practical approach. Tyler exploded onto the UK bouldering scene in 2006, at just 15 years of age, with a lightning fast ascent of Jerry Moffatt’s iconic test-piece The Ace (V13/Font 8B). The next few years saw Tyler climb some of the hardest boulder problems around the world, including Jade (V15/8C) in Rocky Mountain National Park, Practice of the Wild (V15/8C) in Magic Wood, Switzerland, and about another hundred or so V13s and 14s.

In January 2009, Tyler, along with friend and filmmaker Keith Bradbury, headed to the renowned area of Fontainebleau for two months of solid climbing. The result was an unprecedented tick-list of well over a hundred of the forest’s hardest problems and one of the greatest climbing films of all time, Between the Trees.

Tyler is a recent graduate of Wesleyan University with a degree in Neuroscience.
