The Exuberance of Progress

Last night while working out at my local Vertical Endeavors, I had a major breakthrough in my climbing.  I managed to complete each move on a route rated V7.  After spending nearly a year stuck at around the V5 range I have finally started to make some obvious forward progress, and that has enhanced my excitement for the sport even more!

I’ve also been working a V8 in my past two sessions, and I think with more time, and a little luck I might get that one to go as well.  It’s a crimpy little number, which is just my style, but I’m having trouble with a hard Gaston move on a very steep part of the wall.  We’ll see how it goes 🙂

I hope to go back tonight to link all the moves on the V7.  Looking forward to getting outside and testing my climbing prowess on some real rock this Spring!

Climb On my friends!!
