Today was an insane climbing session.

I don’t know what prompted this sort of high volume session but I was feeling it. I’m going to attribute it to the Clif and KIND Bar my friend hooked me up with after my initial warm up. Shoutout to Boro for the pick me up snacks.

Something different I did today was I worked in an extra twenty minutes or so on easier routes for a more comprehensive warmup. That may have been the trigger I needed to get into the zone. Lately I’ve been rushing in getting to working on V4s+ that I’m probably not fully warmed up when I start on those routes. I’ll have to be more mindful of this going forward.

To close out the session, I sent two V6s! Pretty sure the last time I did that was back on 1/31/18.

Also, I decided to start an Instagram to log a few of my favorite sends and sessions! Here is one of the V6 sends I had today.
