I just got back from the rock climbing lesson and... It went great. The lesson started out with 1. Showing how to use the harness. 2. Explaining how to hook up the belay device and how to belay or repelling 3. Then he climbed to the top and had me belay him down, No he did NOT fall. 4. He then had me climb to the top and had me come down. It was apiece of cake. We did that about half a dozen times. 5. We spent the rest of the lesson with me climbing different walls and repelling down. Each wall got straighter and harder until I did one with a over hang. NO I did NOT fall. 6. After about an hour and a half my forearms had lost all their strength. 7. The rest of the lesson was me asking questions.
So Parker are you ready to give it a try with me?
I did not get any pictures of me up on the wall. I think I will go back this weekend.
Hay I could use a climbing partner here in Vermont, how about it Brad?
