With it being climbing session #20 of the year, I wanted to make sure shoot for a 40 pointer. Ended coming up one point short. I had a solid day overall on the walls today. I pushed a little bit back into the V6s, which I haven’t done since my session back on January 31st.

It’ll be interesting to see how sessions #11-20 played out statistically. I generally feel like I’m going to be trending down from my first retrospective, but we’ll see how the numbers shake out when I get the chance to run them.

The big achievement here was passing my 200th send of the year.

Here are the day’s stats:

Warmup 10 pull-ups
Grade Outcome Points
V0 0
V1 0
V2 2
V3 ✓✓ 6
V4 ✓✓✓✓✓✓ 24
