I do realise that I haven’t written about climbing in such a long time; I think this is because I climb so infrequently (a few times a month) now day’s and other sports such as running have taken priority. When I place that in comparison to how I used to climb (3/4times a week) I feel less switched on towards the scene and I think that 2014 is the year I shall climb more frequently again.
Climbing isn’t for everyone; if you’re crippled by fear of failing and can’t see past that then the chances are you won’t enjoy yourself. If you fancy a challenge and working your mind alongside different muscles then you’ll love it.
Whilst there is an initial outlay to buy your basic kit (you can normally rent from most places whilst your discovering if this is a sport for you or not) and once your set up it should be an investment that lasts a few years. Once your ready to go outside the world is your oyster, summer is with us and the UK (and beyond) has many crag’s to welcome you to the world of rock climbing outside.
Have you ever climbed before? Is it something you would try?
