I went climbing at Chong Phli again today. The goal was to get on Grace 7a again and refine the beta. Unlike my last time on Grace, I didn’t think I might send and unlike last time at Gibbon Roof I did not send when I thought I wasn’t going to. First I warmed up on Exfoliation 6a+ then moved over to Grace. I moved well up to the bolt just before the crux before taking a small fall. This was a new high point on lead so I was happy with my performance. Then after a couple tries I was able to move through the crux. But this doesn’t mean I cruised up to the anchor. The next few moves are still difficult with bad feet and it’s farther to the next clip than I would like. Took a “fall” will my waist at the bolt then lowered down.
Anong tried then I went again. I climbed clean up to the last bolt I clipped, essentially climbing it on top rope. Then climbing up a little higher so the bolt was at my knees before falling. I let out a shriek, partly in terror, partly because it was a little fun. The fall here isn’t bad at all so I just need to go for it despite the moves feeling bad.
