I went rock-climbing last weekend at Vertical Edge… AWESOME. Definitely can’t wait to go back. It is awesome to be a situation where the only limitation is yourself.. You see other people doing an orange wall with ease, and you’re standing there on a green, clinging to the wall, feeling stuck, with no idea on which direction you should take… and then BAM! it hits you to try something a little bit differently, and it makes all the difference in the world. Can’t wait to get some gear and hit a real wall! The fortunate thing about Vertical Edge is that I can belay some kids for a few hours on the weekends, and then I get a free pass for a couple of days of climbing…. Guess what I’ll be doing this weekend ?
A buddy of mine (drummer in this video – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fy4MEPJ7npo) sent me a video of this guy who does free climbing and when he gets to the top, he base jumps… definitely look forward to the day that I have the hutzpah to try it out.
