Climbing!

I spent today with a friend, his cousin and girlfriend at an indoor climbing centre in North London. It was so much fun! I climbed a massive wall all the way to the top as well as having a go at a few others. I tried one where you climb in a cavern and go across the wall upside down. I was able to get across the ceiling, but couldn't quite get down the other side. Seeing as it was my first time I am pretty damn chuffed! Photos below:

Me versus wall - I won!


Large wall I climbed from a distance:

Is the climbing place called the castle or something? If so my OH goes there sometimes!

I've never gone climbing but it sounds like a lot of fun!

a.book.in.the.life - Yes it was the Castle and it was wicked! If he was there today he may have seen me wandering about, smelling and generally not knowing what I was doing but having great fun!

Nymeth - It was wicked, you should give it a go sometime. It hurts muscles I didn't know I had though... Must start doing press-ups.

That's awesome! I see these things all the time and I've never done one. We have a few places that have these walls around here, I'll have to do it one of these days...I should really do a 101 things do list like you are doing...quite inspiring!

That looks so awesome! I've always wanted to try wall climbing but I'm too chicken to try ^_^

You asked how to make the blogs I read scroll up. I'm not very good with html ^_^ but you can check my blog, click on view if you're on IE, then source. When the notepad window comes up, CTRL F. Type marquee then look for the line with the code. It should be the one with less-than sign marquee direction=up or something.

Lemme know if it makes sense^_^

Wow! Our gym has a climbing wall, but just one, and certainly not as interesting as yours! Nifty.

I've never done this before! This sounds like fun!!
