Level Up

I have officially leveled up at climbing.

I went into the gym this evening and readily cleared my first 4th rank course.  I’ve been working on this particular course for over a month across four or so visits to the gym.

After clearing that course I then handily cleared two more 4th rank courses and then made progress on a fourth.  I also did better than I ever have on the extremely steep overhang wall on two 5th rank courses that I’d never been able to even start before.

It felt… amazing.

For some perspective I started out climbing around the 6th rank level and plateaued heavily at the 5th rank.  Once I started renting climbing shoes I did a lot better.  There are still plenty of 5th rank courses that I can’t clear, but some of that has to do with strength that I just don’t have yet.
