Today the conditions in Oliana were right and things finally lined up; I’ve just sent Papichulo 9a+ and I can’t really describe what’s going on in my head right now.
This past week the poor weather conditions allowed me to train at home and I felt the renewed power transfer to the rock yesterday and today.
However, yesterday when I was almost at the top and so prepared to clip the chains a bit of a finger-pocket broke and caused me to slip off, preventing a send.
Fortunately, today things fell into place and I was able to send a great line, which happens to be a grade I haven’t sent in quite some time.
It has been an exciting process and I’m so proud of the progress. Psychologically it has been a bit a bit of a mental struggle to find that balance between being extremely motivated and not over-accelerated. I’m glad things fell into place today!
I’m already thinking about the next projects! One down, many more to go. The road back to the top is just beginning.
