The title of this log pretty much says it all about this session.

Today was one of the most frustrating climbs of the year so far. The good thing that came out of it was that I ultimately got the V5 I spent the majority of the time working on.

I failed thirteen times today, with 11 of those coming on the same V5. The main reason for the failures came from this blue V5 at FA Uptown that required you to secure your position on a slabby hold before making a transition up an overhang. To send the problem, I had to work the second part and first part separately (hence the 1/2 that I’ll be putting into this log). Needless to say my hands are shot right now.
