Yesterday I went to Chong Phli. Not feeling particularly motivated but knew I needed to climb something. So I warmed up on EFZ 6a+. I wasn’t sure what to climb next but was feeling like I should push myself a little bit. So I decided to try leading a route I had only climbed on top rope once several months ago. I headed over to Hook, Line, Sinker 6b+. I thought I was going to send but that idea was quickly dashed. I had to rest in 3 or 4 spots to figure out beta. But I got to the top then worked the route a couple more times on top rope.
Today I went back to Chong Phli. I wanted to redpoint Hook, Line, Sinker. So I started off the same as yesterday. Then moved over to my goal for the day. I started up and moved through all the parts that gave me trouble yesterday without too much trouble. I even found easier beta when clipping the anchor. I considered going home after this since I accomplished my goal for the day but decided I should climb Exfoliation 6a+. I’ve never liked this route much. The first half is ok but from the crux to the anchor never felt good to me. But today I got up there and it wasn’t too bad. I almost considered going for the 6c extension but I was feeling a little tired so I’ll save that for another day.
