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:

Grade Outcome Points
V0 (5.8 – 5.9) 0
V1 (5.9 – 5.10a) (✓) 2
V2 (5.10a – 5.10c) (✓) 4
V3 (5.10c -5.10d) (✓) 6
V4 (5.11a) (✓) 8
