Scending a Tallish Yellow V3 This Morning

I finally scended this tall-ish, slanted yellow v3 this morning at Planet Granite, after falling from it dozens of times over the last few visits to the gym.

The crux (hardest part) was that handhold second from the top, which I could never hang on to. Finally I figured out by stabilizing my left foot on that long hold, I was able to more easily boost up to grab that handhold. The rest was gravy.

Here's how it felt to scend that route this morning.
