tomato, tomotto, kill mike amato.
i think onsigting or redpointing a route always sets you up for sandbagging yourself in the future. i can't cout the number of times i have gotten killed on a route that i had previously onsighted/redpointed because i didn't take it seriously. that is one of the main reasons that a route is dead to me after i send it. i don't ever want to do it again.

Basically my point. But it is still an oxymoron.

A similar line of reasoning: Say you are comfortable with an area and a style of climbing, you send a route with difficulty but cleanly, and then convince yourself that “it can’t be that hard”. After beating yourself up on a second ascent you realize that it really might be “that hard”.

Any takers on the route of interest?

Maybe so. Did you just get back on Acrophobia or something?

Yes, it is.

I did it to myself just last Sunday.

Na (on the list though) – That one is intimidating and looks hard, and it would be difficult to not take it seriously. This is the reverse situation.
