Technique means a skilful or efficient way of doing something. In climbing, technique includes everything you need to consciously or unconsciously execute a series of moves: balance, momentum, coordination… And also all the specific skills you’ll need to solve problems without wasting energy: flagging, drop-knee, smearing…

You will often hear that to become elite at anything one needs to practice for 10 000 hours on average. In reality it’s a bit more complicated than that: what you want is to focus very deliberately on the sub-skills that make up an overall skill.  Focusing on more specific things than just climbing is harder but will ensure continued improvements.
