This research programme examines how people perceive maximal reach-and grasp-ness in climbing, and as such these questions will be limited to climbing.
Is experienced gained from performing daily submaximal reaching sufficient for the accurate perception of maximal horizontal reaching affordances in rock climbing?
How is perception of maximal horizontal boundary of reach-and grasp-ness affected by: hold size, body position, additional load, or fatigue.
How will inducing fatigue affect how a participant calibrates distance and their movement economy?
