Climbing again today. I did pretty much exactly the same stuff as last time, but a lot more smoothly; much less OH GOD I'M GOING TO FALL OFF once I know I can actually make it.

Finally managed to climb the grade 10 that's been taunting me for weeks! My problem until now has been that I don't approach it until after I've done one or two other climbs, and by that stage I'm a bit tired. I end up stopping to decide on moves, and the longer I spend hanging on while considering my next move, the tireder I get.

This time I made it the first climb of the day, and didn't let myself get bogged down too long on any one spot. I think my endurance* has improved a bit, and I certainly had a bit more confidence this time around. I didn't climb much else today, but still happy with that :-)

*Endurances, really. Fingers and body each have their own limits, and I'm getting a bit better at not running out of finger strength while the rest of the body is still going.

Made it halfway up a grade 12 today (I think today's the first time I've actually fallen off the wall), after getting about two-thirds of the way on a 10 and completing a couple of easy climbs before that. As usual, my problem was running out of strength/stamina partway up, but I think I'm getting better.

On an unrelated matter: how many marshmallows in my hot chocolate is just good customer service, and how many is time to make sure the nice lady can see my wedding ring? Does the answer change if the marshmallows are accompanied by fancy patterns in the froth? Or if the cafe does the best almond croissants I've had?

Also, should that be "is just good customer service", or "are just good customer service"?
