The Skill Of Resting

I talked to Anthony today at VE and he mentioned how important learning the skill of resting is, especially on harder/longer routes.

In this video of a climber doing another super hard boulder problem, the actual climbing wasn’t as interesting to me as watching how long she rests. She rests on extended arms for more than one minute and then makes a hard move.

I actually had that same thought when I saw this. I kept expecting her to go, but she just kept resting. Maybe me rethink my idea of resting...
