Mar Álvarez is a firefighter. And she climbs 9a (5.14d)—one of only six women in the world to have climbed that grade. How does
she do it? Discipline. Álvarez trains hard and she trains smart. She plans every exercise to target a weakness, then she sticks to that plan.
This video from Namuss provides insights into the process and what it means to make sacrifices for your passion.
Featured route: Esclatamasters (9a/5.14d).
