Tuesday Climbing •∆• March 7th, 2017

Hello, loves!

Let’s get on to the post.

What I climbed:

This week I mainly tried starts of routes, tested some different moves, and belayed.  I didn’t climb a whole lot of full routes this week.

There was a new route this week that I really liked so I climbed that a lot. I think it was a 5.9.

I also did a few 5.8’s.

 

That’s all for today. I’m sorry this is so short but like I said I mainly belayed and worked on moves. I’ll see you next week.

Love,

Caylee

Tuesday Climbing •∆• February 28th, ​2017

Hello, loves! Today I’m going to finally do another post on this blog. It has been forever.  I’m trying to get back on schedule for all of my blogs. There is a post on my main -Beauty/lifestyle- blog. If you want to check that out click HERE. Anyways, let’s get on to the post.

In my last post, I talked about climbing grades. So, if you don’t know what I’m talking about, you can check out that post.

What I climbed:

Now, these are just a few that I remembered to write down. A lot of the time that I am there, I just try starts of routes and don’t complete them. The ones below are the ones I know I finished.

I did a 5.7 and some 5.9’s this week.

The 5.7 was pretty easy but it was a good route to start off with.

I did 4 5.9’s.  The 5.9’s are harder for me but I like the challenge. One of my New Year’s resolutions was that I would try harder routes and push myself to be better.

So, that’s all for today. I’ll see you next week.

Love,

Caylee

Tuesday Climbing •∆• September 27 2016

Hello loves! I’m finally doing a post on this blog. I climb at a local YMCA every Tuesday. And today I’m going to be talking about what I did this Tuesday.

Tonight I did a few harder routes. I did a 5.7, 5.9 and a 5.11.

Climbing Grades 101
Grades are numbers assigned to a route and are used to describe that route’s climbing difficulty.
There are at least a dozen different grading systems in the world; they vary between different countries and regions. Here in the U.S, we use the Yosemite Decimal System (YDS) to grade routes, while we use the V-Scale to grade boulder problems.
Route-climbing grades begin at 5.1 and currently go up to 5.15c. Bouldering grades begin at V0 and currently go up to V16. Both are open-ended scales, meaning that harder routes/boulders may exist, but no one has achieved that next level yet.

5.7 is pretty easy for me but it’s still fun.

5.9 is a little harder but it gives me a challenge.

I liked the 5.11 but of course, I can’t feel my fingers right now. -It actually hurts every key I press-

And there were a few other routes I tried but didn’t complete. But, I’ll try them next week.

I forgot to take pictures tonight. So, sorry for that.

Well, I think that’s it for tonight. Sorry, this post was so short I’ll have to work on that.

Love,

Caylee
