Today I went out of my comfort zone and went on to a ledge (of sorts), or at least a toe hold. I went rock climbing for the first time. It’s been on my bucket list for a while, but last night I agreed to try it for real. My friend Sandy asked me to go climbing with another newbie, Kathleen.
So instead of doing a nice safe lunch of sushi, we trekked out to IBEX http://climbibex.com learned to “belay” and went for broke. For only knowing 1 person “fairly well” having the other unknown belay for me truly was a test of trust. CRAZY. But i did it!! We DID it!!!!!!
I got to two top’s. A 5.6, the green trail below in the corner by the door entry and a 5.7 with a nice incline on the other side of the wall. My hands and thighs finally gave out after 2.5 hours of crazy fun!! I can’t wait to go again!!!!!!
