    Again, sorry to hear that man. And I appologize for asking, I think with something like this it may be beneficial to learn where others have gone wrong.

    Im very fortunate to have a couple of experienced guys to show me what's up and Im glad I have enough of their confidence to put their lives in my hands.

    Webe gone a few times with a meet up group filled with other people I don't know and I rarely let any of them belay me.

    Went indoor today and had a blast.

    Handled a few different 5.9 and got halfway up a couple 5.10

    Got a crimpy v3 under my belt today as well


    Wanna go indoor more to focus on cleaning up my technique.

    Don't let gym ratings give you too much of an ego boost. They're almost like two different sports. I love gyms, but I've crushed v8s in a gym, gone outside and been totally dominated by v3s of similar style.

    So good for technique, though. And strength building. I used to go to my gym for like 4 hours, go grab lunch and take a quick hike, come back and burn another 4 hours. Great way to spend the winter to ensure you don't wind up weak in the spring.

    I agree those ones seem wayyyyyyy easier. I'm usually grunting and sweating my way up 5.7 outdoor and I was flying up those 5.9 inside.

    Fun as hell but kinda feel like they don't count Ya know..

    I really need to work on my footwork. I guess I do a bunch of weird shit w them that I don't realize... Starting out w my toe planted and kinda rolling my foot so the outside ball by pinky toe is supporting me. Hard to explain. Feels right but I guess it makes problems for me with where my knees are at.
