Sore Forearms

Gabe and I went climbing again yesterday. This was now our sixth time, I believe. Our skills are certainly improving. It's interesting how quickly you can improve, though it is early on and I suspect there's a learning curve that's quite shallow at first, then stiffens up. We're now climbing most 5.8 routes without too many problems. I climbed my nemesis of a week ago, a 5.8+ route that has a crag and an overhang (I doubt those are the technical terms).

When I try to make a fist with my lefthand, my ring and middle fingers don't quite curl as much as they should - I feel a stiffness in my mid-forearm. Maybe I overdid it just a little. It's okay, though, I can still type. 🙂

  1. Cool, another Cocoa programmer / rock climber.

    Keep it up, I've been doing it for 7 years, and I've loved every moment of it. Pretty soon you'll be heading out to the crags and pulling the hard 10+ trad leads like this one. 🙂

  2. I live in southern Florida. In other words, "what crags?" 😛 I think we may go to Georgia later in the summer. There's some relatively simple routes and things there, we hear.
