A baseline test, 16 routes
On my second night back to the gym after the holidays, I decided to take a test run to see where I'm at in terms of my 1000 foot goal (50 routes) at Coyote. I started out on easy 5.7/5.8s and slowly ramped up toward harder grades. In total, I climbed 16 routes over 2 hours: two 5.7s, seven 5.8s, two 5.9s, two 5.10-, two 5.10+ and one 5.11-. The last climb of the night was a 5.8 and man did it feel hard but 16 routes is encouraging.
