@Randy. W. Thx 4 the tip. I can manage to go through some crimp problem now. Apparently the trick is in the foot. Proper foot placing, and weight placement allows me to move forward easier while using the crimp as balancing point. Fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now, onward to strengthen my core muscles so I can muster more than just a few steps on that overhanging vertical stuff.

OK, Boulder talk.

I am getting better at crimping. The problem is I can go up but somehow is having problem going down.

The place that I boulder have this all crimping problem where you follow the steps to go up, then you have to down and then up again. I am always stuck at the top step 8, trying to go down. Any suggestions? Maybe I should step my feet higher first before trying to step down?

ok, pic posted.

Problem is I put my right hand on 6/7, and left hand on 6/7 as well.
left feet is on the big green that is a start for the rainbow route. right feet is on little green hold with black tape to the right of left feet.

Next step, I let go of my right hand and reach for no 8. but somehow my left hand always slip afterwards. I am going to play around a bit this Friday. I think playing with body placement and trying to grip more area with my left hand might solve it.

10/8/12-Yuhuu, I just send the white crimp route on 2nd attempt..
