Jesse and I went rock climbing last night, and I’m proud to say that I completed a 5.10 d on my first attempt. As I look back on the past year of climbing, I can see huge improvements in strength and technique for both myself and Jesse. I remember when I was asking for help on 5.7’s and now I can fire through 5.10’s without a problem. Jesse’s lost a ton of weight and gone from a comfortable 5.6 to a comfortable 5.9 and 5.10. Two weeks from Friday, the Gym manager is taking us out for a day of climbing. It’ll be exciting to try and use the skills we learned from the gym on real rock. They say that when you switch from plastic to real rock that you typically drop about 2 to 3 points in difficulty. We shall see!
