It's been almost six months since I last gave Whiskey a try. A lot of things have kept me from it in that time, but it was good to be back. I have been training a lot for an upcoming mountaineering trip and NOT focussing on rock climbing strength. So, I was pleasantly surprised on my first go when I fell only a move below my best go to-date. Subsequent goes were less impressive, and my lack of training shined through. My big takeaways from the day are:
- Whiskey a Go-Go is still amazing
- I haven't lost as much strength as I thought, but I have lost some endurance
- I am psyched to spend the summer and fall solely focussed on hard rock climbing and even bouldering (yes I said it).
