A send analysis

Last week, I finally redpointed my spring project, Public Solitude in Clear Creek. For a grid bolted wall like Primo, the route is brilliant. I would try to describe it but you would probably quit reading. Suffice it to say that the route is hard for me. Really hard. Hard enough that it took me nearly 30 tries. To me, why I finally send a route is always sort of a mystery. Thus, in the spirit of science, I've decided to keep track of the things I do differently when I finally do send my choss pile project.

Here's what I've got. I went through countless beta changes trying to find the sequence that worked best for me. Since I slightly changed beta almost every outing, I'm throwing out that piece of data. Here's what's left:

  1. I didn't work that day
  2. I was wearing a new baddass shirt from Urban Outfitters
  3. I shaved my balls
With the giant bush I had going on, I'm chalking up my success to number 3. I think shaving that thing probably dropped a couple pounds-enough to send this choss monkey to chains. There's only one question left-is sending worth the razor burn?

Arnie, glad you sent. Had you ever shaved your balls before? What guard on the clippers? Or did you really go with the 10 year old look?

The picture that I posted of all those RAZORS should be your hint, chastinky.
