Had some personal stuff come up this week that has been on my mind…as a result I had to switch up my climbing schedule a bit and it definitely impacted my climb today. Regardless, I was aggressive on sticking to predominantly V4s and V5s today, despite failing a number of times. I was a little short of clocking a back-to-back 40 point workout, but did a total of 17 attempts which was one more than my last climb.

Here are the stats:

Warmup 10 pull-ups
Grade Outcome Points
V0 0
V1 1
V2 ✓✓✓ 6
V3 ✓✓ 6
V4 ✓✓×✓× 14
V5 ××××✓× 10
Cooldown 15 pull-ups
25 pushups
10 pull-ups
Recap 10 sends, 7 failures

2018 YTD

  • 77 sends (+10)
  • 23 failures (+7)
  • 205 pull-ups (+35)
  • 90 pushups (+25)
  • 26 biceps
  • 12 triceps
  • 20 shoulders
  • 180 ab reps

Overall, not thrilled with this climb, but also not disappointed given the things that happened personally this week. Think for my next climb I’m going to take it a bit easier since I’ve been pushing the V4s and V5s this week and my hands are definitely feeling it.
