Getting Psyched for Regionals - Riley Joyce

 
Getting Psyched for Regionals - Riley Joyce
 
November 29, 2011 - 
 

All I could think about today in school was to send this route in the gym. I was looking at the clock, seeing minutes going by.  It felt like every class period was so long. When the last bell rang to get out of school, I went straight to the climbing gym and got on this new v6. It starts out on two big slopers and you have to hand foot match with your right foot and hand. Then you have to turn your body-- so that your back is faced to the wall and then fall into a So iLL hold. Then to a crimper and then to the top. It took me a couple of tries but then I gave my self sometime to rest and then.. I did it! Its making me more psyched every day for regionals! While sending the v6 I was wearing my Projects, this helped extremely. The first move with the hand foot match could only be done if you had the right shoes on. Since the Projects have such thin rubber you can feel exactly where your foot places.
