After my last session, I entered this week feeling really confident and that confidence carried into this session. Today was another great session on the walls. I wasn’t able to get any V6s but sent a number of V5s. I’ve pretty much climbed out the First Ascent Block 37 routes at this time for my skill level, so will be going back to Uptown for my next workout.

Here is a quick video of one of my V5 sends today:

Some days are meant to be crimpy.
