Sibella F., Frosio I., Schena F., Borghese N. 3D analysis of the body center of mass in rock climbing. In: Human Movement Science, vol. 26 (6) pp. 841 - 52. Elsevier, 2007.
The purpose of the present study was to search for common patterns and for differences in climbing strategies in a group of recreational climbers. Twelve participants were involved in the study. Each participant climbed a simple indoor route consisting of a 3m horizontal shift followed by a 3m ascent for five times. Climbers could choose their own style, their preferred speed and holds. Their motion was recorded through motion capture based on passive markers. Results suggested that two main climbing strategies were used: the first preferring agility over force and the second preferring force over agility. We also found that our best climbers tried to minimize power during all trials.
