Today we set the left side (the bulge) of the Dojo, and tomorrow the right side (the cave) is going down. Then back up again. Cause that’s how we do. Jonny likes to chalk all the holds before we forerun, so the problems will feel more like they’ll feel after they’ve been climbed on a couple of times, instead of feeling slippery and frictionless like new and just-washed holds usually do. This makes it easier for us to grade ‘em more accurately. Today, while Jonny was minding his own business chalking up the new Boss, this happened:
JJ likened it to that scene from the movie Ghost. Ha. This sort of thing happens more often than you might think (unless you come in on Tuesday or Wednesday mornings, then you know this is relatively mild).
Anyways, in addition to the exciting new problems on the Dojo, I added a new page on the blog to (hopefully) better explain our grading system. It’s at the top, under “Spot Grading System” or you can just click here: Spot Grading System. We also re-named our “contact” to “Talk to Us” cause that’s what we want you to do there–general feedback, questions, suggestions, etc… Post-specific feedback can still go on specific posts, but for other stuff please try the Talk to us page. Thanks!
