Alright, now I realize that the climbing is off-topic for a hiking site, sorry about that! Admins, if you want to take it down I will not be offended.
No need to do that. Good luck with your goals.
I'm slow and fat. Unfortunately, those are my good qualities.

I've been climbing for about ten years and am very afraid of heights. I use climbing as a strength exercise rather than a mental one and generally do not push my fear of heights within that sport. In that sense, being physically able to climb 5.13 but unable to lead anything that requires any sort of physical difficulty actually makes a lot of sense to me. I can remember learning how to sport climb in a gym when I was 14 and being so gripped that even 5.10 felt hard. Just a bit of perspective from a boulderer :-"

I’ve been climbing for about 20 years, and could lead up to 5.9 and follow on 11 on trad, I’ve done a lot of easy climbing but never got into any real hard climbing, now I don’t do much anymore, top rope 5.11, sport lead 5.6 and trad.

My goal this year is to follow someone up the Diamond, maybe lead the pitch from the car to the bathroom.

Two months down, 10 more months to go in 2021.

How did you all do goal wise? I see in the trip and conditions reports that a lot of you are getting out a lot and that's great. Please post.

I had a pretty good February; hopefuly all of you did too. :-D I need to get more rock towers though.

Generic Goals for 2021

Hiking and Climbing Days = 250-Currently at 49 as of 2/28/2021. Not too bad.
Summits Climbed = 150- Currently at 27 as of 2/28/2021. Not too bad.
Rock Towers/Technical Buttes = 10-Currently at 1 as of 2/28/2021. Could do better.

I swore to myself that he must live on Mars and has a calendar there twice as long as ours. But I don’t see Olympus Mons on his list so I’m still flummoxed...

Except for the generic goals, often times I don't finish 100% of the goal list. Everything unfinished just gets pushed to the next year. I try to finish as many as possible regardless. This year I may get sent to California in which case I'll have to rewrite the list.

My wife gave me COVID in the middle of January, still recovering six weeks in. 2021 sucks (so far). Nice to see all the conditions reports though, several folks have been getting after it this season, congrats to you! I've got 10 or 12 peaks on my Spring todo list, I just need to get that first one under my belt and hopefully all will be well.
