Beta Be Prepared

Raise your hand if you're not a route follower. Same.

R E C A P


The intimate climbing space within Walker Memorial offered a no-frills yes-thrills type of climbing experience. Here are a list of things I now have an appreciation for (not to be confused with a mastery of):

1) The colored routes serve a purpose -- don't mix and match.

2) Handholds are different than footholds -- use them accordingly.

3) Plan your Beta (i.e., sequence of movements through the route) before you start climbing.

4) Upper body strength is necessary -- no amount of chalk dust will substitute.

5) The downhill descent requires careful execution -- see below.

Isn't she a rockstar?!
