Mountainside: Training 

How has physical training developed in the last fifty years? In what circumstances can walls be thought of as teaching machines? Is it possible to make the transition from indoors to outdoors in training? Or are they two different cultures? Are there contact points between training for physical performance – in forms such as yoga – and the preparation needed for advanced rock climbing? Or have these forms in fact already met, in the heightened mountain performances so popular on YouTube?
