calbrennan asked: Hi. I love to climb, and even more I love to get better. I was wondering how often you climb?
Hello Cal, I’m glad you’re asking about this. For my first year of climbing, I was obsessed with getting better at climbing. By my third week I climbed my first 5.10a, by my sixth month, I was climbing V4s and 5.11s a month shy of a year, and now comfortably working V5/6s and 5.12s. and just kept progressing forward. Thing is, I was so obsessed with progressing, I kept wearing my body out, climbing at least five times a week at the gym. So, instead of getting better by letting my body restore and get stronger, I just kept struggling getting over plateaus.
Now that school has started, I only get to climb two or three times a week. But I think because of it, I have gotten significantly stronger. Just listen to your body, even if you’re itching to climb, make sure that you’re not over doing it. Because when you do get the chance to climb again, you’re just gonna kill those routes.
Hope that helps,

Marrying someone based off of aesthetic appreciation shouldn’t be enough. But thank you, I am flattered.
