Learn to fall so you can climb harder and have more fun!

If you want to climb more confidently by managing your fear of falling then keep reading.

Fellow Climber,

Here’s the hard truth that many climbers don’t want to hear: 

Falling is a part of climbing whether you fall or not. In fact, the fall is what makes climbing what it is – if there was no potential to fall, we’d be hiking.

If you don’t learn to be comfortable with falling you’re much more likely to be scared that you’ll hurt yourself if you fall.

Moreover, if you're too scared you'll never be able to push your grade, or feel that awesome feeling of trying hard, in flow on the rock.

Fear of falling is totally normal. It’s one of the few innate fears that we have. But we're more likely to be scared of something we never do.

However, for most people it’s just not enough to take some falls and be done. It’s a process. You have to practice something that you might have a lot of ingrained fear of, without ingraining that fear further.

That’s hard to do and to do it successfully you really need to develop certain skills and have a deeper knowledge of how fear is learnt and unlearnt. Which is what this course is all about!

Who This Course Is For:

Let me ask you some questions:

  • Are you mostly thinking about getting to the next bolt when you climb?

  • Do you avoid falling and often say ‘take’ if you need to rest?

  • Do you avoid hard moves at the top of the bouldering wall?

  • Do you lower your grade to avoid falling and as a result fail to progress very quickly?

  • Does your body tension or anxiety increase as you get further away from the bolt, protection, or mat?

  • Do you breathe a sigh of relief every time you clip the bolt or get a piece in even though it's safe to fall?

  • What happens if you continue as you are and you carry your fear of falling up every climb? 

  • What opportunities, dream climbs and amazing experiences are you missing out on because you avoid falling or feel tense when you climb? 

  • How much quicker would you improve as a climber if you could relax on the wall? 

Learning to manage fear of falling is the single most effective way to become a better climber.

"I was a climber who never fell, I was a climber who avoided falling and therefore routes I might fall off! I started the Strong Mind Course in winter and by spring was beginning fall practice outdoors. Fast forward 8 months and I am falling off much more and importantly, happily and now starting to try routes that I know I will fall off. I have also led my first 7a. I definitely could not have made this progress without this amazing course and incredible instructors."

Helen Burgess

Helen had been climbing for 20 years before she learnt to fall. After starting fall training she was able to climb her first 7a at age 50.

Grades aside, the main thing is that she is enjoying climbing more than ever and learning to fall has completely transformed her relationship with climbing. And she isn't alone.

"I have been trying for years to get over my fear of leading and I actually had FUN and felt so free doing it." Elizabeth

Working on fear of falling is helping climbers achieve their goals and enjoy climbing more than ever

These are just a few of the many testimonials we received from people who we've helped manage their fear of falling.

Now does that mean you will get the same results?

That depends...

The Disclaimer That Couldn't Be Any Plainer

There is no trick that will magic away your fear of falling.

Just like you can't read a book on physical training and expect to get stronger, you can't do this course and get rid of fear of falling. We can guide you but you have to work hard and do the practice. You get out what you put in.

We also can't be there to make sure you're safe, so you need to take responsibility for your own physical and psychological safety when carrying out any of the exercises that we discuss in this course. Not all the exercises in this course are appropriate for everyone.

We'll never ask you to do something you're not comfortable with. This course is about empowering you with the knowledge and teaching you the skills that will enable you to make better decisions around falling and fall practice in climbing whether you're a boulderer, sport climber, indoor top-rope climber or trad climber.

Here's What We Can Guarantee

We're giving you every tool, tactic, practice and strategy that we personally use in our own climbing and teach others.

Everything we teach is evidence-based and tried and tested on hundreds if not thousands of students that we've worked with.

We'll put a lot of time into helping you build the necessary skills that make fall practice successful rather than just teach the fall practice on its own.

We'll never ask you to do anything you're not comfortable with. This course is about teaching you the skills and empowering you with knowledge so you can make better decisions around falling and fall practice for yourself.

Exactly What You're Getting

Last year we launched the Strong Mind Course and it was really successful in helping people learn how to manage many different fears in climbing, including fear of falling. However we still get many requests to help people who just want to focus on their fear of falling.

We can't work with that many people individually so in response to these requests we created Flight School which focuses solely on fear of falling.

Now you might be wondering exactly what you're getting:

Chapter #1


  • What is 'mindset' and what are different types of mindset

  • What your current mindset looks like

  • How you can shift your mindset to get better results from this course and fall practice

  • Homework tasks

With the right mindset let's build some knowledge about how to unlearn fear

Chapter #2

Knowledge and Understanding

  • The science of fear and stress

  • Why self-awareness is necessary for fall practice to be successful

  • How to build self-awareness

  • How to get the psychological challenge level right

  • Breathing tools to manage stress and fear

  • Troubleshooting weaknesses in your practice

  • Setting goals and intentions moving forward

This might look like a lot of content to help you manage fear of falling but everything we teach we believe to be necessary if you really want to climb free from fear of falling.

So many people teaching fall practice miss out many of these ingredients.

When we put together this course, we really wanted to go above and beyond and make sure you get the help and support you need.

This is why you're also getting live support along with the course.
