Rock Climbing With Rebecca

Rock Climbing With Rebecca

So we took my daughter, Rebecca, and a friend indoor rock climbing and it was awesome!

Each of them climbed three walls of increasing difficulty.

They ended with a 5.7 grade climb and did it more or less with ease.

We were yelling “Go Rebecca!” the whole time.

The guy who holds the rope, the belayer, told me its not so much about strength as it is willpower–and that is a terrific lesson not just for kids, but for all of us!

I was really impressed not only with how they climbed so energetically and with such determination, but how much fun they were able to have doing it.

I told my daughter that next time–I hope to climb with her–that’ll be interesting (oh G-d help me…).

I took a picture here of the place on the wall for the 5.10 climb, and it was funny for two reasons, it has this crazy looking skull on the wall, and someone taped underneath a note that said “Brush Your Teeth.” 😉
