Well, I just did a route setting on Tuesday. It was a very nice experience and it was harder than I thought it would be.
deceitful. Meaning, I want people to underestimate it and later think "Wah! Susah ni!" once they tried it hehehe
Before fixing those holds on the wall, I actually imagined how the route would be and the skills that I want climbers to apply as they climb. But honestly, when I finished fixing the holds, my route was even harder than I'd imgined!
Ryan, 12 y.o, assisted me during the route setting process. He helped me attach the holds at the starting point and then became my loyal belayer. He used two sand bags to balance our weight. That made me feel heavy. That red recycle bag I'm carrying was filled with holds and screws so that've caused heavier load for our tiny belayer. With that heavy load, I also found it harder to climb up.
Here's a video of me fixing the holds. Ryan was yelling from below, complaining about the far gap between the holds hehe
So here's a picture of me testing my own route. I fell 5 times but finally manage to reach the top..
The other climbers helped to name the route...
I succeed in making the route deceitful (^^)v
