I attempted a new V4 Tuesday. I got stuck halfway through and hopped off.

I attempted that same V4 this morning. For some reason, I remembered and channeled something I’d seen “good” climbers do: I weighted my foot on the side I wanted to move toward, trusted it, and shifted my weight onto it. That gave me incredible reach, and bypassed the sketchy moves that didn’t work for me earlier in the week.

I finished that V4 this morning. All because of one change in technique.

Shift. Trust.
