Coming second... again...

Ho Hum...

Well results of the interview are out, passed the board (for those not used to civil service jargon that means I'm good enough to do the job) but came second.

All of which is fine, apart from this is the 5th time I've been beaten into 2nd place... Ho Hum, I'll just have to keep the pencil sharp as all I can do is keep going, though it is rather tiring...

Anyway, unfortunately climbing is 1/3 strength, 1/3 technique and 1/3 in your head... so with my head not in the right place not a great day at the climbing wall...

It's probably worth explaining a bit about climbing and its mysterious ways. I mostly top rope, so the rope is already threaded through a mallion at the top of the wall, you tie yourself in, grab a friend to belay you and start climbing...

The knot is a figure of 8 knot - as seen here http://www.indoorclimbing.com/Figure_8_Knot.html

Routes indoors are usually colour coded, so you can rainbow (use any hold you can get to) or follow one of the coloured routes - all sounds oh so simple...

I'll leave grading of routes to another day, as I'm digging out my wet weather running gear for the morrow

TTFN
