I wrecked myself by trying a really hard (read: slightly above beginner-level) bouldering problem without enough warming up.
And then there’s people that spend all day doing high-difficulty climbs. The kinds of shit I’ve seen people pull at the climbing gym is amazing, there’s so much strength and skill involved.
Ah yes, “they’re made for breaking”. But also “they’re made for developers”, and “if your tools break you’re in deep shit”.
No, I swear, this time it’s Actually Good.
Nothing like realizing, after a long and arduous search, that the number you typed in a couple months ago should’ve been just a little bit larger.
There’s a climbing gym only a couple blocks away from the place I’m staying. Went with a friend who has a membership there, it got me in for free. Never done any climbing or bouldering before, but it was great! Even managed to clear a path of the second-lowest difficulty. Should probably go back more often, it seems like a fun thing to get good at.
