@kerr_adams Takeover Day 3 // Success in climbing is rooted in commitment—commitment to the movement and the challenge.
The Sandia Mountains offer no shortage of opportunities to test your commitment. Even the bolted routes seem to present unique psychological challenges not found in most other areas. If you prefer your climbing to have a spicy twist, add this to your list of places to visit. You won’t be disappointed.
The more I climb in the range, the more I begin to appreciate the appropriateness and creativity of the route names. Plan B (5.11-) is a perfect example of this. From the ground, the movement looks straightforward and leaves one to ponder, “Why is it 5.11?” Well, you’ll soon find yourself in a panic, abandoning your initial plan of easy, straightforward movement. Hopefully, you came up with a “plan b”. at Sandia Mountains
