If you cannot climb then slackline

The Tour de Bloc is tomorrow at Coyote and my finger is nowhere near comp ready. I decided the best way to cheer up is to get out and do something. Winter slacklining is just what the doctor ordered.

Controlled crimping

I've started traversing on much smaller holds to reintroduce my pulleys to crimping. These are heavily controlled situations where my left hand is on a solid hold so I don't fully load up my right hand until I want to. Rehab is about controlled and predictable climbing. No desperation moves. I've had a lapse in my routine icing so I need to get on that today. I've also been mulling over the idea of getting back into route climbing as the next step in healing.
