Anyone climb at planet granite Sunnyvale looking for a buddy? Or somewhere else reasonably nearby I have a car.

Got to the top of my first 11a's yesterday (at my gym in Sunnyvale). Next time I should be able to do them clean. Still can't do the V3's on the bouldering wall.

Congrats! Oh hey, I go there virtually every day. I did my first v3 like a month ago :D. Have you tried their balance and technique bouldering class? That really got me to commit to improving my technique.

I'm also there rather regularly but haven't taken good advantage of the classes. If you want to meet up my gmail account is REDACTED!.

My projects are v3-v4 and I usually do 2 each of v0-v3, down climbing the easier ones, to warm up.

Planet granite had a climbing comp a couple weeks ago. After a few climbs I got bored of waiting in lines and busted out my camera. 600 photos later....

These were about 100 of the better ones.

Check out the bat hang in the men's finals route.

Looks fun as hell. What's the deal with what looks like a tandem climb? I've never seen that: you have to hold onto your partner's arm at all times?

Thanks for the pictures.

e: vvvv Goddamn that's cool.

For that problem the first and last moves had to be done attached. Those are photos of the start position (each person had to go up 1 hold while joined) after which each person could move up on their own. The final dyno had to be done by 1 partner for bonus raffle tickets!!!!

The route setters didn't complete it when they tried to give everyone a beta haha. And I think only a few groups made it past the starter holds (let alone to the start position off the ground) and only like 2 pairs completed it that day.

Edit: yeah just like the video.

Funny enough when I was there at lunch today a guy said "Nah it's way easier with one person" and just cruised up it with no effort.

I, too, complete "v10s" using rainbow holds.

So I joined my gyms bouldering league in the v3-5 bracket but really I'm probably at the lower end of that spectrum. (Currently doing probly 80-90% of v3s and 30-40% of v4s). Any suggestions for training over the next few weeks so I'm not dragging down my team?

Either common skills worth developing in that range or even just basic training ideas would be appreciated.

Rock climbing blindfolded is hard. "Is this my hold?" "No - up and left." "Here?" "Left and down some." "This hold is no good. Where's the next one?" "Up."
