With it being my fortieth tracked climbing session today, I wanted to make sure it was a solid one in terms of point value. I ended up recording a 50+ point day, but wasn’t solidly sending V5s.

It’ll be interesting to see how this fourth stretch turns out data-wise seeing as it’s been highly variable in terms of point totals. I’ve also been skipping out on cool downs at times when I’m climbing with friends.

Here’s the day’s stats:

Warmup 10 pull-ups
Grade Outcome Points
