What does 5 years of climbing look like? Climbing/Bouldering progress in my 30s: Plateaus + injury

5 years ago today I walked into a climbing gym for the first time and bouldered myself into oblivion, but since then I have progressed. This is a continuation of my 3 years of climbing and bouldering video, which you can find here: What Does 3 Years Of Climbing Look Like?

So what does 5 years of climbing look like? From a decade hunched in a chair behind a desk, to falling off of v0s, to progressing, to plateauing, and now to new grades and new experiences (and new hurdles). That’s what 5 years of climbing has looked like for me. Here’s to hoping the next 5 are just as awesome. Thanks for watching.
