As the title says, I feel like I'm not improving, in fact I feel like I'm losing skill.
I've been climbing for a little over 2 and a half years and I just started at a new gym. The first handful of times I came here I was flashing some V3s, and climbing all others pretty effeciently. I was even starting on some V4s. Now I'm struggling on almost every V3 I encounter. Even one of the ones I flashed a few weeks back, I can only get 2 or 3 rocks up before falling. I'm even struggling on some V2s now.
I come about twice a week consistently with a few exceptions. I talked to some people around the gym and they recommended watching bouldering comps on YouTube, which I've been doing. I'm currently at my gym just doing V1s and 2s to practice technique. I wanna make sure I can do them all while remaining totally static.
All that said, does anyone have any tips on what I can do to get back to where I was? Or even some insight on why I may be regressing so rapidly?
Thanks in advance!
Edit: I don't know if it's too relevant, but the grips at the new gym must be much newer or less worn out than those of my old gym. My hands are usually totally raw roughly after 45 minutes – an hour of climbing.
