Today was overall a light climbing session, but also a PR day. I completed my first 5.11d today!

It took a couple resets midway through the route since there was a big dyno, but I pulled it off at the end. Pretty happy with how the day went considering I haven’t top-roped in a while.

Here are the day’s stats:
