Wednesday Climby Climb

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.

      Don't try to belay on the sly for practice. They're fine with you practicing your knots before the test, not so much with having anyone one the end of the rope.
