Old Dogs New Tricks follows Richie Patterson, ‘a rapidly ageing, perennially injured, underachiever’ (his own words) on a quest to see if modern training techniques can help him surpass his previous best and climb the magic grade of 8b+. And all in under a year!!!
To do this Richie enlists the help of Tom Randall and Ollie Tor at Lattice Training as well as calling in favours from a few climbing superstars he meets on the way. We follow Richie across the highs and lows of his year, from his first sessions at the wall, through injury, picking a suitable project and finally getting on the redpoint.
In our first episode Richie, explains his motivations, meets training guru Tom Randall, gets put through his paces on the notorious Lattice Board and receives his first ever Training Plan!!
