Shockley's Ceiling, 5.6, Gunks, NY

My second time climbing, ever! (note the brand new shoes and harness. I was hooked the second I tried it...) Jorgie's Crack, 5.10, Pinnacles, CA

And... my first lead ever. Druglord (? Think that's the name? 5.10c was the rating, though that seems a joke...), Castle Rock, CA

And, since that time of year is nearly upon us, where it's too wet to get on rock but there isn't any ice yet...

Aya,
Not to fawn or embarrass,
And anyone paying close attention:

Your mechanics seem to be very dialed.
Good movement skills.

If we look at that pic up top and some of the others in the first threads,
Your hips are typically pushed in pretty snug to the rock (over your feet) and then the correspondent femur, lower leg, and foot placements always look very well sorted out.
