THE PERFORMANCE EDGE

 

The Performance Edge describes the void beyond your comfort zone, where success or failure can be decided by how well you can operate beyond your limits.

It takes a lot to get there, requiring years honing a craft to perfection in the toughest of conditions.  In situations the less experienced, tough, and strong would not find themselves in, let alone get themselves out of.

And yet it is something we strive for; to find comfort via the competent application of experience, mental toughness, and physical ability.  It is somewhere our world-class stable of athletes have some experience of, whether it be when summiting unclimbed Himalayan peaks, forging new Scottish winter routes, or racing the worlds' most demanding ultra marathons.

Check them out below.

 



ATHLETES AT THE PERFORMANCE EDGE:

      SIMON YEARSLEY | SCOTTISH WINTER


Simon's climbing career has spanned almost 4 decades, culminating in a fierce love of new routes and true, exploratory climbing.  This takes him as far afield as hitherto unclimbed peaks in the Himalaya, though new-routing in Scotland has always remained close to heart.

Simon talks about what allows him to operate in these hazardous environments, and how a healthy, objective appreciation of the dangers involved can increase the enjoyment of his sport.  He is a man with a comfortable relationship with mitigating risk, seeing consequences of this as unambiguously binary; you are 100% fine or 100% not.

In Simon's Performance Edge, he dissects the closest he has ever got to crossing this line.
