I explored a new place yesterday. I forgot how fun it is to clear a landing and clean a boulder. This is the early exit to a beautiful sloping lip traverse I called The Deputy. @3v4n92 continued for another 15 feet through a mysterious mono and some slopey compression and called the full line Cowboys and Indians.

How to Properly Take Advantage of the Pyramid

One of the best ways to make consistent progress is to use the pyramid technique or a ladder approach to your climbs. This simply means starting with easier climbs and progressing to harder climbs during the session and then regressing as you begin to fatigue.

Using this system will help you get in more climbs during a session which will open doors for opportunity in increasing your technique and you’ll build endurance by dialing back your climbs slowly instead of just stopping after burning out on a very hard climb. It will also help your body cool down and may increase your recovery time so you can climb more frequently.

Here is an example:

Say you are a climbing 5.7s and you want to progress to 5.8. A great way to approach this is to start with a 5.6, then a 5.7. At that point you are ready for your real challenge for the session and you go for a 5.8.

Keep challenging yourself with harder climbs until you begin to fatigue or can’t ascend, then work your way back down through a 5.7 and a 5.6. These final climbs, although not personal best attempts are crucial in building your endurance so that you’ll be able to climb longer in the future.

More experienced climbers may have a longer ladder of climbs to work through before they attempt a new challenge, but you’ll want to continue to work your way back down the ladder afterwards.

To break it down further, if you rate yourself 5.9, try these climbs in this order:

5.7 > 5.8 > 5.9 > 5.9+ > 5.8+ > 5.8 > 5.7

Warm up………..Peak………..Cool down

The exact pattern is not as important as the overall concept. Rest periods between climbs are important as well. I suggest a work to rest ratio of about 1:3 to 1:5, so if you climb for one minute take three to five minutes rest before your next attempt. Longer climbs require more rest.

We will go over more was to increase climb time and reduce fatigue in next week’s post.

I have a hypothetical situation. Let’s say, on Facebook, Person A posts a status regarding a controversial topic. The status is set for friends and acquaintances (i.e. not fully public). Person B comments with opinions that are the opposite of Person A. Let’s say Person B is generally polite, coherent, and respectful while still putting forth contrasting feelings. 

Person A proceeds to delete Person B’s comment, saying it (the status) is their personal space and that type of content won’t be tolerated. 

What would you guys do if you were Person A or Person B? 

What do you think of the whole situation?
