Rich, Ratha, Shaun and crew decided that their new sport this summer would be rock climbing. Apparently it is a good workout and blah blah blah. This past week I went with them to a rock climbing gym AND to a spot up Big Cottonwood to do the real thing. And yes, I am still sore. As many of you that know me know, I have no upper body strength. Or any sort of strength for that matter. So, attempting to climb a very tall wall took me about 10 minutes. No lie.
Yes, that is me at the top. I was sweaty and shaky, but it was a nice feeling to know that I made it to the top with minimal cursing and no threats to quit.
I also will not lie when I say I will not be making this a regular activity of mine. After somehow making it to the top, my poor little nails were ripped to shreds. Perfectly manicured nails and rock climbing do not work well together.
Here are a just a few random pictures from the rest of the evening. All in all I had a great time and I am sure I will be going again.
