Bouldering!

Bouldering!

Popped over to the wall today on my own to do some bouldering. I’m still miles behind in my bouldering skills. It’s definiately a technique thing. Still, I managed to the to blue 5b route I was working on last time. Only managed it once, but I did it. Ended up falling from the top once I’d completed it, but with a big grin on my face. I can feel my control improving. I’m flailing and barndooring a lot less and as a result becoming a bit more confident. I’m also learning that a lot of the moves involve ‘twisting’ and adjusting, rathing than climbing as this opens up a lot more reach sometimes. It’s becoming very obviously that I need people to point out how to do the bouldering routes though before I get anywhere! Damn.
