Yesterday I fell on what would have been my hardest redpoint to date. I made it through the boulder problem. I made it to the hands off knee bar rest. I still blew it. And yet, I am still happy with my performance.

My satisfaction comes from an outsider’s observation. “You didn’t even look pumped, I’m surprised you fell.” I don’t know if this person knew they were quoting Rock Warrior’s Way damn near verbatim, but it was nice to hear.

Ball ’til you fall.

Next go for sure.
