Not done a whole lot of climbing of late, instead I've taken up the new sports of volleyball and tennis! Also scored a hat trick in last weeks 6-side football game (15-10 to us, the final score) Weather has been pretty shit which is depressing but when I've got amazing volleyball to look forward to it's alright. Some days I've gone to the wall but I think it's a waste of money for me as I don't really like it. Volleyball and Tennis are free so it's good.
Been to dumby a bit and managed the Shield without that undercut which I think is pretty cool considering how impossible it felt when I first tried to pull on. I don't think I've got much stronger since then but understand dumby a bit more and figured out the way to pull on holds a bit more, I don't know if anyone feels me on that one. Anyway, this takes me another step towards some kind of made-up set of boulder problems that I reckon are big ticks. Since last post, arsing around on the dumby 'playground' problems has lost it's appeal. Doing the shield has made me realise there's also something to get out of a project. With the weather also pretty wack, now probably is a good time to crawl under a roof and see if I can climb out by Christmas.
However the otherside of the coin is that I'm pining for somewhere new to climb, but it's too easy to get disheartened by the forecast.
