Arno first inspired me to start thinking about mental training for climbing as something of value beyond how it could help my own climbing. Reading his book also planted a seed in my head that would take a few years to grow; this idea that mental training could be something I’d like to teach. During my injury I’ve had a lot of time to think about this and I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s definitely something I want to pursue. So here I am, learning from the maestro himself! Thanks a lot Arno, for this interview and also for putting up with me asking endless questions for a week!
