    Hello,

    I am a new mountaineer and decent sport climber (red pointing low 5.12s) who is looking to tackle some easy alpine objectives as I begin to systematize my LT training objectives. With this in mind I am looking to start the 16 week training program and am curious how/where I should add roped climbing into the program. This is mainly because I have trad based objectives and want to fit the technical skill building (gear placement, rope management, pump management, etc) in appropriately.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Ben

    Ben:

    I’d prioritize trad climbing days about equal the aerobic work but training one will compromise the other. Just be aware of that. We typically recommend that you training in block where each block of 3-4 weeks is focused mainly on one of these two things and the other drops to a maintenance level during that block.
