I like it! We used to go bouldering all the time when we lived in Canada. Not so much now, because natural walls are far away, and we lack the dollahz for a gym. It is really fun though!

I love climbing!  I would climb a lot more if it weren’t so expensive ๐Ÿ™  The gym prices here are pretty high and on a student budget I can’t really justify it, but hopefully I’ll get a membership once I have a real, full-time job again.  I was a member of a gym when I lived and worked in NY and it was awesome.

I don’t know how to safely set my own outdoor anchors, but I looooove climbing outdoors when possible.  I started in high school, and climbed a little during Outward Bound and with the outdoor club at my college. Outdoor climbing is so much more fun, but even harder to justify expense-wise.  Heavy sigh.

I LOVE bouldering! It’s so much fun ๐Ÿ™‚ I love trying to figure out where to go next, and finishing the hard challenges. I don’t rock climb that often, but that’s fun as well ๐Ÿ™‚

I love rock climbing (in fact I got my favorite scar climbing a particularly tricky rock face), but I don’t have the time or money to keep it as a serious hobby.

Love climbing! I’m actually afraid of heights so I only do it at climbing gyms. ๐Ÿ˜‰ But it’s my favorite thing ever. I’m kind of a sissy and it makes me feel like a badass… haha!

I’m more into mountaineering, like multi day treks, but they usually involve a bit of scrambling and bouldering.  I need to get myself to the climbing gym, because there really is NO better arm workout!  My core also feels amazing every time i climb…stabalising muscles i guess?

@laurenthesmall: Not much these days, unfortunately. Trying to rearrange my life to fit more climbing in. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I LOVE bouldering.  When I lived out west we would camp and hike to rocks and climb.  It was one of my favorite things to do.  Really great for getting in shape, and for confidence!

I love climbing at gyms!!  Darling Husband is way more into it than I am.  He climbs all the time, and does sport and some trad climbing.  He’s really intense with it.

I love belaying and could do it all day instead of actually climbing!!

@laurenthesmall: Probably on and off for the past 4 years. And once I move to my FI’s city, I’ll finally have acces again to bouldering! Yay!
