|My friend and I are going to climb 36 pitches at Seneca next may within 24 hours (we estimate it'll take us 14-18 hours) starting at 1am or so on a weekday.
I've 'plateaued' on training ideas. Seneca is about cracks and the hardest routes that we are going to climb is 5.7-5.8 seneca grades.
What endurance training practices do you do employ? Any suggestions for weekly and monthly plans? What would you do if you were climbing 2700-3000ft in a day at seneca?
Note: this event is the focus for my winter training and I have never attempted anything like this. The longest routes/days I've done have been at seneca and the gunks.
This is fairly vague purposedly due to time but I am interested in your point of view given the info described. Thank you all!
