WAGG Day 25 - Goes 71-72

9/10/2017 AM Weight 188.4 AMRHR 67

It's been a long time since my last attempts on WAGG. My first go wasn't great as I tried to remember my way. The second was a little better, I climbed right through to the crux. I'm definitely not as fit as I was a 11 months ago. It's coming back, but the process is slow. The route is just as amazing as ever - though the "silver-dollar" foothold below the "mail slot" has broken at some point in the last 11 months. I'm not sure it makes a difference in the overall difficulty of the route, just a mildly different sequence.

WAGG Day 24 - Goes 69-70

Two more goes today. The first one was feeling really good, but my mind got in front of my body, and I was looking for holds that I was two moves away from getting to. The second go was much better, I climbed through the "crux" and ran out of gas a move-or-two later. Then I got right back on and climbed it to the top - it was a quick one-hang on TR, not my best go ever, but a damn good one. Can't wait to get back.

WAGG Day 23 - Goes 66-68

October 14th, 2016

A quick evening session, 3 goes total. Did all of the moves on each of the goes. Feeling the fitness return...slowly. It's hard to communicate just how good this line is. I mean, it's solidly 3 letter grades harder than anything I've ever climbed, even on a top rope, but it keeps me coming back for more. Sometimes I wonder if I'm wasting time on the thing, and should be building a bigger pyramid. Then I get on it, and the climbing is so good that I can't help but come back for another ass-kicking. Do yourself a favor, no matter what grade you're climbing and get on this thing - it's nothing short of amazing.

WAGG Day 22 - Goes 63-65

October 9th, 2016

It's been 5 months since my last go on Whiskey, and it felt go to take three goes on the thing. Also, a summer of poor conditions (maybe better stated as low-motivation) brought me to the table a little weaker than the last time. Still, I took three goes, and did all of the moves at least twice. This thing is hard, but amazing. I need to climb/train more, and I feel like I'm over a little period of burnout.
