Who is Libby Riddles?
Only the first woman to win the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race.
So lets scamper up those walls in her honor, confident in the fact that none of us will ever have to run behind a pack of dogs for 1,000+ miles.
In case you're afraid to try climbing because you don't think you have enough upper body strength, let me reassure you -- it doesn't matter. You use your legs and core right along with your arms, so it's not like you're constantly hanging by one arm, like in the movies. There are lots of different levels of climbing, and if you're willing to give it a try, I'm sure you can reach the top of a beginner wall, at least. And it's totally safe -- you'll wear a harness and be roped in, so even if you fall, you won't go anywhere.
"How much does it cost?"
Vertical Rock Indoor Climbing Center has given us a great deal;
-$2 off their day pass (Normally $18), FREE harness rental and $5 for shoe rental. No worries about renting a chalk bag if you don't have one, we've got plenty to share.
