I met Emily at the climbing gym today and we worked on a few routes on toprope together. I worked on “Chasing Dragons” (5.8) and almost got out of the crux. Oh, so close! Emily worked a 5.10 and a 5.11. I worked a 5.9 after I got done with “Chasing Dragons”. It looks really fun and requires a lot of switching of balance back and forth because it is in the dihedral. I will get both of these! I will! Em and I had a great time climbing together, as always, and we both took it pretty easy today.
I had a good talk with Jim about route setting. He stays out of it because Heath deals with the route setting, but I found out a lot about what kinds of problems and things they are looking to set. I still have some work to do on my climbing and my weight loss before I am ready to start setting again, but I do plan on setting again. Someday.
