Never say "I should have gone for it" again
Do you see yourself in this description?
If so, we should be internet friends.
For *years* I've loved to help people just like you get over a fear of falling. The more anxious the person is, the more I look forward to helping them.
How does this work?
"That's cool, Josh. Sounds nice. How do I know this will work? I've already tried Climbing/Rock&Ice/Reddit/my friend's advice on taking falls. It worked... sorta"
Great question. The secret to this (don't tell anyone, OK?) is that your fear is not the problem. It's a useful indicator. I'll show you how to use it as an indicator, instead of using it as a source of shame.
Oh, and I've done this before, dozens of times. I taught many people this exact material, in person, way back when. But unless you and I happen to climb together regularly, there's no way for me to share this information with you!
"How will this benefit me?"
Rather than sign up now, and get an email from me in a few weeks, you'll get regular updates and previews of what I'm building. You'll also have a chance to shape what is to come.
PS Who the heck am I? I'm Josh. I don't have a claim to fame besides an old top-rope systems management certification (pretty proud of that one) and I love to teach people valuable things. Twitter. Blog. thompsonjoshd at gmail's popular email service.
PPS Here's real feedback from others I've worked with:
"Before I wouldn't try anything I wasn't sure that I could stick. Now I am willing to go for it anyway (because I'm not scared of the possible fall), and often surprise myself by making it. Which in turn expands the range of what I am sure I can stick." - Helen
"This class changed my mentality about climbing classes in general -- I sort of dismissed them as not a useful way for me to learn, but was proven wrong." - Julie
"I would strongly recommend such a course to other climbers. We all go through periods of "lead head". I had been struggling for several weeks and was experiencing frustration with my climbing. Josh's instruction helped me to get over my anxiety and be a more confident climber. Because of the instruction I was able to get back to sending hard without my mental block getting in the way." - Kelly
