Rock Climbing

I went rock climbing the other night and it was a lot of fun and a good workout to boot! I went to a place called Pacific Edge in Santa Cruz, which is an indoor rock climbing gym. While not quite the same as climbing a real rock, indoor rock climbing offers a wide range of climbing experiences from very challenging to beginner.

Pacific Edge itself offers bouldering, top-rope wall and lead wall climbs, with plenty of overhangs and a few cracks to round out the climbing. They also offer a weight room, cardio equipment, and yoga classes. You can take climbing classes as well. If you are in the Santa Cruz, California area and are looking for a fun way to get a workout in, try them. You will have fun.

I used to do some rock climbing but haven't done any in a while. I've been thinking about getting back to it though. There are quite a few rock climbing gyms around here (Denver area) and even a small wall at the rec center I go to. Maybe I'll give indoor climbing another go this winter!

I highly recommend it. I do a little light strength training (though not as regularly as I should) and I was sore for a few days after. And it's a lot of fun. I found myself watching a few people who were flying up various routes and amazed at their "spidey" like abilities.
