Well thanks Luke, for the vote of confidence! Na just joking,but I beg to differ. I may be 85, but its mostly muscle and mostly in my chest, back and arms. I probably could lose about 5-8 kg of fat, but that could come later. I’m only new to the sport, and I only went to an indoor gym for the first time today, and I was pulling V3’s after about 1/2 an hour, and was mostly hindered by my finger strength. I know 85 may seem a lot in climbers terms, but i am 6’3″, so it doesn’t really matter. All in all, i realise that i may be heavy in relative terms, but i honestly believe that in a year or two i may be able to pull V10’s. That being said, im only just 17, so ive got plenty of time.
