And 3. Despite the instructions have still put their max grade ever, rather than general max. You know who you are.
my thoughts exactly
I kinda have a problem with this.
This is one of those things that is best summed by “it depends” and is going to be different in definition for everyone.
To illustrate, when I boulder, I usually climb alone. I rarely climb many problems. 9.99999/10 I warm up by pratting around/doing pull ups on differing holds/ easy trav with exagerated moves and then batter my head against the current project. Often thats done with a timer, 3minutes trying a move, 2min rest, x=n attempts, five minute rest, on to next move; until wired then repeat process for linkups etc etc.
As you can imagine this is not an approach conducive to social inteaction.
So, when climbing for fun (as apposed to satisfaction), with others, I’m not exactly “in the zone”...
There are reasons for this, there are people who occasionally dip into this forum, who will recall with a wry grin my ability to have epic tantrums when things become competitive and my utter inability to avoid competing. I have mellowed, but principly by avoiding the issue.
On the other hand, I have never flashed a 7B on any rock type.
And some I couldn’t master after several sessions.
Then there’s a certain 6B at Savasona that I never could finish. Too highball.
