Setting Routes

I know they are always looking for new route setters at VE so I found this story by a newbie route-setter fun to read. She took 7 hours to set her first route. I liked this quote:

“Some of the feedback Simon gave me was that the route became less interesting at the

end.  By the end of the route I was pretty tired and wasn’t putting as much thought into things as I had earlier.  I also learned how to force a sequence of moves through the position of each hold.  Now when I climb, I’m much more aware of the position of each hold and how this reveals the intended moves.”
