I’ve been climbing in Boulder Canyon with a guy I found on Couchsurfing. I searched for people with “climbing” in their profile and came up with a solid ~100 results. One of the things that I quickly learned, however, is that people who have “rock climbing” listed as an interest haven’t necessarily done it more than once. Or outside. Or ever.
Anyway, I met this guy named Ken and we’ve hit up a lot of climbing routes in Boulder Canyon. We’re both climbing around the same grade and I’m teaching him the ropes (literally) when it comes to rigging. I just got back from four hours of climbing at a place called “Nip and Tuck” and had a fantastic time, even climbing through some light rain towards the end.
I think I’m pretty addicted to this sport.
