I've never tried climbing but it looks like good fun! If a little scary in a way. Bet it's great for fitness.
Oh yeah, its fantastic for fitness, a full body workout. It gives you great upper body strength

Same here, I'll definitely have dropped a grade or two by the time it starts up again, and my upper body strength is shot. There'll be quite a bit of training at a bouldering gym for me when things open up

So I do(or used to, in the before times) wall climbing, and have done for about a decade. It's amazing fun, and a great full body workout. I realised recently that I hadn't been able to do any lead climbing in the past 10 months, and I miss it. Is anyone else here a climber?

I used to do wall climbing a while back. I remember I loved it. The feeling of getting to the top is the best, even when your fingers have that sensation when gripping the wall.

It's definitely  hard on your fingers

Hi! I used to boulder quite a bit, but I think my fitness is way worse now than it was when I could get to a gym often. I used to boulder V4-5ish outdoor, V6-7 indoor depending on the gym... never really got into sport but toprope was always fun in the gym. Such a great workout and fun a activity with or without friends... and the climbing community is unbelievably supportive and accepting.

Here's my gumby ass punting off like a V2 a loooong time ago lol
@climbing  I would so do this.. was this in SC ?

My fingers are already knackered from carrying heavy objects around for car boot sales. Sometimes they hurt just holding this damn ipad. Wish I could try out some climbing though see if I can get my muscles to work properly

Yup, Big Rock, which isn't really good for bouldering. Had fun regardless

I've only ever done those beginner wall climbs. But, I'd been very fascinated by how some people make it look gravity-defying.
Don't be afraid to try something new.

I tried one once when I was 10… didn’t get very far up 🤣

You use any creme on them? I find the o’keefes working hands works really well. I used to use it when I worked at a grocery store a couple years ago

I’ve got oil atm which is a thick cream I sometimes use at night but that only helps with dry skin, not pains in my bones
