Indooor Climbing




Here is my college roomate's youngest daughter ready to climb the rock wall. They were in town Saturday...one of her sisters was playing in a volleyball tournament, the other practicing at the gym where the gymnastics state finals will be held next weekend. She lit up when I offered to take her to meet the ski club for an indoor climbing adventure instead of sitting around the gym. She was a little afraid of the height, but on her second attempt made it all the way to the top. There are three routes (all taking you up about 40 feet) I made it about half way up the medium difficulty route and couldn't figure out how to get any higher. Go Postal was the first to climb to the top. Then before we left he tried the most difficult route, it actually slopes out so it takes more skill/strength for sure. Here is his reaching the top.

I bet she did have a blast.

I don't think I'm adding this to my list of things to do though.

This scares me... glad you all made it down safely.

Oh my, you brave lady. Climbing a rock wall is not in my "to do" list. Glad you got down safe.

My brother does this crazy rock-climbing thing outside now!! That's how he dislocated his shoulder last summer!!! He fell about 8 feet down before one of his hooks caught hold! But he loves it. He'll be back at it again I'm sure this summer.
