Topic - Your experience.. an apprenticeship in bouldering to routes

noxah - on 21 May 2013
I've been bouldering on and off for just under two years, I can flash V3 most of the time, V4 takes several attempts and working V5s - I climb at all London walls. I go on a few trips a year and climb routes outdoors but never manage to get up anything harder than a 6b, my head game isn't where I want it to be, I get pumped too quickly and find it difficult to read routes. I never really get around to real redpointing. I definitely feel I should be able to climb harder and things start to look really interesting in the 7s...

I know more or less what I need to do to get my routes grades up, climb routes and get mileage in and climb outdoors more often, which I'm going to focus on as soon as I recover from my finger injury but I'm wondering peoples thoughts and experience on going from an apprenticeship in indoor bouldering to outdoor routes.

How was it? What did you have to work on? What's possible? What to expect? Timeframes etc.

Looking forward to your responses,


Nathan
