Wait a second… no i don’t. you guys have already had so many seasons.
Delena for Season 5!
I haven’t bouldered in a while. The last time I really bouldered, I fractured my ankle as I fell from the top of the wall. Then when I went back at school, I was confined to the world of top roping. Heights petrify me, so it wasn’t exactly the best fit, but I overcame it. Sorta. I worked hard, climbed harder, and slowly gained experience.
Today, I bouldered for the first time in months, and it felt amazing. Before I would power up problems, not thinking about where my weight was, or how I was positioned. Now it’s all I think about. I plan my moves, I think about where I should shift my weight, and I make slow, deliberate movements. I try to stay as low as possible, keeping three points on solid contact on the wall/holds at all times. I think about staying balanced. I’m still pretty bad, but I’m getting better.
When I started a couple months ago, a V1 or a V2 seemed impossible, but now, a V1 seems like fun, and a V2 is just a problem to work on. I have this problem I’m working on, a V2, but I think I can do it. Not just power through it, but actually *finish* it.
Gotta say, feels good to be home.
