Sungam made this point, but you didn't show any signs of catching it. If you're catching the hold on the way back down, then you overshot the hold. You want to catch the hold at the "deadpoint," the apex of your arc, where you are momentarily weightless.


Apparently you didn't "catch" my reply to Sungam's fine post:

"There does not have to be slack in your arm to use this technique. You could get your hand(s) around the hold with your arms at full extension (no slack), but the moment your hands touch you pretend, for a split second, that you're going to do a pull-up at the grab. So, you flex your muscles the moment you touch the hold, not necessarily before it. Thanks for the other tips you've provided on what to do with your lower body, etc... I wasn't thinking about some of them. For example, I wasn't thinking about placing my feet on holds, just catching the handhold."

You do not have to be on your way back down to pull up the moment you grab it.

Regardless, thank you for reinforcing one of the many productive points that Sungam made in his post. That one is important enough that I suppose it is productive to emphasize it once again. I appreciate it.
