End of a Rope

I did some climbing today and it felt really good to be back on the end of rope. It has been far too long.
We visited the Vertical Endeavors indoor climbing gym in Minneapolis today, with about 80 fifth graders. The kids "Rocked" and really had a good time encouraging each other and challenging themselves. It was an awesome experience to watch them in action.

I even dug out my old climbing harness and shoes and enjoyed a little 5.9 action myself. This is something I haven't experienced since climbing Grand Teton thirteen years ago. It was a wonderful feeling and I'm excited to get back there again sometime soon.

I have never tried climbing. I am probably a little too old to be trying something like that now. Or at least foolish if I did...seeing how me and heights do not really get along. Like you said, it was fun, and it looks like fun.

Good job with the kids!!
