Trevor and I just got back from rock-climbing at Rock Ventures up in Rochester! It was an organized #roc #tweetup by Josh and Ryan (@FOREperform) with a little nudge/help from Camille (@CampanaroCA) a few weeks ago.
Besides Trevor, myself, Camille, and Josh… Dave (@MonB4V), Camille’s boyfriend Andy, Kelly and Marissa (Facebookers) were also there! Most of us did the belay training, and then climbed for awhile. I’d say it was a success!
I also have to admit, however… I was quite petrified of climbing! I’m not sure if it was the heights (which I’ve never had a problem with before) or the fact that it was something new (or that I was trusting my life in Trevor’s hands), and I didn’t really know what I was doing. I stuck with it, and successfully climbed for a little while. But the truth is… goodness gracious I need to get to a gym and work on my upper body strength!
Here’s a few photos I took while on the ground:
Trevor was nervous I wasn’t going to hold him. I was nervous too. And so was the belay trainer. But no need to worry – I never dropped him… hard. Just kidding.
Here’s Camille (@CampanaroCA)!
And just because I wanted proof that I actually climbed, here’s me “bouldering” right before we left. I did actually climb though, or at least attempt to.
Thanks, everyone, for a great afternoon! And woohoo – I can add it to my 25@25 list!
