Coffee and climbing

Interesting article. Not sure on how well it has been peer reviewed but in what seems like typical societal behaviour, I’ll ignore this as the article agrees with me

  1. I would agree with all that….not too much and not too little, somewhere in between, wherever that might be. One thing I know for sure is that my climbing is affected if coffee is not involved.

      1. Morning. An absence of caffeine is detrimental and all I can then think about is coffee. I can remember visiting a climbing wall in Northampton over Christmas, their cafe was shut. This was a deal breaker for me. I thought about it all day until we left and managed to find a Costa and then I was happy and bouncy like Tigger all night long.

        Today’s socks will be coming shortly…

      2. I’ll happily meet you there. Have to warn you that I’ve not bouldered for about 5 weeks for one reason or another.

      3. Ha ha. I love that….booked out. If one day you find yourself down this way, it would be lovely to meet up. Until then, it’s just me and my socks.

  2. 30! I wish I had been climbing when I was 30 but I wasn’t and I can’t change that fact. I’m here now and that’s all that matters.

    1. I haven’t been climbing long at all, I look at the kids and I’m so envious. Like you though I’m just glad I found it. You don’t look much over 30 though, I put you a similar age to me!

    Caffeine is also good for chests/asthmatics – not many people seem to know that. I love coffee and drink it all day but it’s rare I have a caffeinated one – just one in a morning and then I stick to decaff.
