- The giant middle white starting jug is by far my favorite hold. I’m secretly disappointed when “easy” problems start anywhere else.
- I get super psyched when I flash. It’s usually a 6b+.
- After the kickboard, the feet are rarely quite where I want them. Also, the kickboard feet are much slipperier than they look.
- I fall on my butt a lot. I’ve also skinned my elbows and banged my knees flailing.
- Most of my sessions involve me trying to send as many 6b+s as possible. It’s easier on the ego than failing at every 6c+ I try.
- The most impressive moves I’ve pulled involve backward running “dismounts” post wildly barn-dooring. I usually end such falls by raising my arms Olympic-gymnast-style.
- I spend almost as much time switching the lights around looking for “fun” (easy) problems as I do attempting said problems.
- The MoonBoard is rough on the skin, especially on the right side of my left thumb–Thanks favorite white starting jug.
- Why is the last move always so big???
- I once lit up the V13, looked at the holds, touched none of them, laughed a little, and went back to my 6b+ to 6c+ filter.

I too had almost the exact same first impression. I slipped off the starting feet more times than I’d like to admit, I immediately spotted the one jug on the wall and hoped all routes ventured to it, and my skin was pretty sore after one evening session. Overall though, I quite enjoyed it! 🙂
