Working a Route

(1/6) > >>

What's the longest time you have spent working a route ???? Days ? Weeks ??

If I can't get it that day I lose interest.

If it is an established climb if i do not get it in two or 3 tries I lose interest. Big ice climbs I sometimes run away with my tail between my legs and have to come back annother day when I feel braver.  New rock routes depending on how much cleaning is involved 6 days is pretty normal for me.

I have never worked a route. Perhaps that is why I never progressed into the higher grades.

Depends on the fall.  If I'm gonna hit the ground or ledge, one or two tries is plenty.
