Forrest has been eye-balling the new climbing gym downtown for a few weeks now and we finally made our first visit this past weekend. He's always been a fan of bouldering and I've only been a fan of cheering him on from the sidelines. The thought of climbing a rock with no ropes and a small "crash pad" at the bottom to catch your fall never really appealed to me until the gym opened. High Point Climbing was the perfect place for us to spend the afternoon - climbing for him, little climbing / mostly treadmilling for me.
we biked / ran over because parking can be a biznitch
it's a monster
you can even rope climb up the outside of the building
(although i'll probably be passing on that)
loves it the most
a few thoughts:
1) bouldering in a gym with a padded floor was a blast
A few weekends ago, we all bundled up and roamed around Lookout Mountain. We hiked, found a few rocks to climb, checked out the view from Point Park, tasted a few beers from a local brewery, and ate yellow snow (only Sal).
i climbed the rock first and then forrest tossed up sal for a photo ;)
"the things i do for you, girl! woofienotcool!"
"mmmm, my yellow snow is tasty! woofiejokes!"
