What motivates rock climbers to keep reaching for new heights? Is it the adrenaline rush? Not really, says Patrick Boudreau, who for his master’s degree in physical education explored the impact of a high school rock climbing program and “self-efficacy”—an individual’s belief in their own ability to organize and manage risks to achieve a goal. “Self-efficacy is a very important element of success,” says Boudreau, who has been a rock climber for 10 years. “Being naturally strong and flexible only counts for about four per cent of performance in rock climbers. The psychological state, your belief in yourself, plays a big role.” Exploring what motivates others to pursue adventure activities brought Boudreau west to UVic from Montreal. For his thesis, he identified four ways that self-efficacy leads to success: take part in an activity that you’re good at; feed off the encouragement of others; look at successful people who are similar to you in ability and age; and determine the way you interpret your feelings. “People attracted to rock climbing and other outdoor adventure activities want to be progressively challenged without being in danger,” he explains. “To do this, they have to be well-prepared and aware. They have buddies who they trust with their lives, and with whom they have to communicate effectively. These are critical skills that can be translated into other parts of their lives.” #uvicgrad #uvic @grippedmagazine @climbingmagazine @rockandicemag @climbcragx
