Wanted to get some volume in today but got a late start. Again! Nevertheless, I climbed a decent amount.
- EFZ 6a+, lead once, then two more laps on top rope.
- Momentum 6b, lead once, then two more laps top rope.
- The Dude Abides 6a+, lead once, then one more lap top rope.
Occasionally when climbing I’ll skip a bolt. Usually it’s the first one off the ground or on very easy climbs mid route. If I do skip, it’s always a conscious decision and I’m 100% confident I won’t fall before I reach the next bolt. But on Momentum I found myself about a third of the way up and climbing past a bolt. It’s not one I would normally skip. I skipped it because even though I knew it was there from previous climbs, I forgot / didn’t see it on this climb. But when it was at my knees I saw it and decided I should clip it. I mention this because I thought it was a significant moment when I was just focused on climbing and not stressed out about reaching the next bolt.
