I climbed my first 5.7 today! It was really tough, especially the overhang-y bit, but I made it to the top. I can tell that my physical climbing skills are improving, but I think this one was really a mental victory - I'm learning to trust myself to be able to use holds or make moves that seem a bit precarious. And I'm learning not to give up when I get tired. (Also, it probably helped that I was climbing with a new belay partner and I didn't want him to think I totally sucked. Climbing - one arena in which you can productively harness your desire to hang with the cool kids. Literally.)

Cool! I'm going to try climbing for the first time tomorrow and I'll be thinking of you for inspiration. :D
