Fresh new problems are up on the bouldering wall.
You stretch a little, but not for long because you’re too excited to try out the new blocs, so you jump on. You tick all of the easy ones to warm up and finally get to the hard ones that you can’t wait to work.
With every moment the anticipation builds, all the angles and shapes rush in and your brain decyphers the sequence – you pull on and the flow of your body engaging with the sequence of holds in front of you gives you confidence and a serenity. A heel hook well placed, the shape and feel of a solid position now radiates through a climb well designed.
