Almost Up the Warped Wall – Just a Couple of Inches Away

Keep thinking about this moment in the Midwest regional finals where I was just a couple of inches away from getting up the Warped Wall in my first attempt and most likely advancing to the national finals in Vegas. My time was pretty fast and I historically have a very high clear rate on easy Salmon Ladders (3 rungs not too far apart classifies as “easy” compared to other setups), so I believe I would have advanced even if I had then fallen on the Globe Grasp. Proud of how I did, getting to compete at all as a walkon and then being the oldest competitor to advance to the regional finals in the Midwest, but this is the moment that I’ve already replayed in my mind about 1,000 times.
