i work out my arms, chest, back legs ,
Since you're pulling your body up when you do rock climbing, I'd add some pull ups.  When there's a tree nearby with a low hanging branch, do a few.  Monkey bars are another good place to strengthen your arms while you're also having fun!  And definitely do some stretches.  A nimble body will help you scoot up that mountain.  Cheryl
