Reach for your dreams and transform your mind.

The MindBodyClimb Method is an integrated approach to improvement. We offer tools and tactics that address fear and anxiety as well as movement and technique. We also use communication to cultivate an environment where we can comfortably try our best. During and after this retreat you will be climbing with more courage and resilience than you ever have before. You will better understand and be able to feel quality movement on rock. When you are climbing confidently and with increased movement awareness; climbing becomes more fun, and more fun leads to better climbing.

I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave one is not who does not feel afraid, but who confronts and conquers that fear

-Nelson Mandela

Our first-class accommodations are minutes from the renowned climbing of Boven. Our beautiful farm house is situated on the ridge overlooking the Elands Valley and Waterval Onder.

Waterval Boven is South Africa’s premier sport climbing area. These crags attract year round international visitors. It has become famous for its selection of high quality routes (over 1000 of them!) of all grades that are easily accessible. The climbing is mostly vertical or gently overhanging with overlaps, coners, cracks and roofs. The rock here is an impressive 2.3 billion year old quartzite! On these magnificent orange faces, you will improve technique and build endurance.

Learning to align your attention with your intention will develop focus within your climbing and beyond.

We will harness the power of intention to create purpose and focus to any aspect of your climbing you would like to develop. A deep focus and strong intention can guide us toward the optimal athletic state of flow. Being deeply present or “in flow” is both a gift and a skill.

This retreat is an occasion to celebrate life and just have fun climbing. It's also an opportunity to develop your resilience and courage, push your boundaries and live your climbing dreams. We will foster and support your genuine intentions. The trip will begin with a roundtable discussion exploring which aspects of your climbing you want to develop.

We use three distinct and highly effective ways to access your unique and often hidden climbing abilities.

First, you will learn powerful tools to increase your mental strength and emotional fitness while climbing. Second, we will create an environment where you can align your attention with your intentions. Lastly, you will receive feedback on movement and technique, advice on route selection and tactics, and much more! We will be using video analysis at the crag to aid in our ability to give you effective feedback. You will have the opportunity to work one on one with professional climbing coaches and local guides who will help elevate every part of your climbing repertoire. By incorporating coaching assessment, video analysis, and self observation we are offering the best resources possible for improvement. You will be surrounded with the support it takes to climb at your highest level and have fun doing it!

This retreat will offer you the opportunity to challenge yourself in the vertical world, connect with nature and slow down enough to appreciate the simple things.
