Also, there was three hours reading Sunil books and playing with his toys, and there was climbing.
Which was very satisfying climbing, after all the suck of recent weeks. I did four routes, three 5.7s and a 5.7+. That last one is my first 5.7+, overhung and on the barrel vault, and it was not easy. In fact, it was kind of the antithesis of easy. And I first tried it back in March, I think. I did it with two falls, which made me very pleased and smug.
So that was visible progress, and I was better on the other three than I have been before, and while I was pleased and tired after finishing, I do not feel kicked down stairs.
Next time, I'm going to finish that green 5.7 without dogging on the rope. I only had to stop once this time, at the crux. Next time for sure.
God, I'm actually getting better at this. You have no idea how encouraging that is.
