Bouldering day! My left triceps were still sore from all the tuck and bail attempts Sunday, but the rest of me felt decent so why not? To the climbing gym!
Warmed up on 2 V0s and 2 V1s. Then I went straight for a blocky V3 I’ve been looking at. It was easier than I thought it would be. Climbed it on the first try, then climbed it again immediately, more cleanly.
Spied a super hangey (a.k.a. steep) V3 with nice deep holds. It was quite the full body workout. I almost got stuck on the final move, until I remembered to turn my left knee in so I could get my hip closer to the wall. It felt like an odd position, but once I locked it in I was super stable and could reach the final hold fairly easily.
Flashed a V2, then its sister V3. I’m starting to feel pretty comfortable with fingertip* side pulls, probably from battling the fingertip pull-rific V3 I couldn’t finish a couple weeks ago.
That reminds me, I need to go solve that problem.
* I bet you there’s an official name for these. I also bet you I’ll look back at this post someday and chuckle at how I thought these fatties were “fingertip” holds.
