I went bouldering today after a ~2.5 week hiatus. Because of my Portland visit and MHacks I was not in town two weekends in a row which made it hard to climb. The last time I went climbing I injured my wrist pretty badly (I fell but didn’t let go of the hold in time, which caused my body to fall while my right hand was still gripping the hold. It was quite painful), so this break was necessary as well.

I mostly stuck to V0s and V1s today and my wrist seems OK, with little to no pain in between climbs. I’m glad I recovered fairly quickly. This whole experience did teach me the valuable lesson that I need to release my grip in time in the event that I fall. I also added wrist exercises to my workout routine in order to make them stronger.
