Life Surfing 101 (rock climbing)

Well,  if you want to live life to the fullest then you want to play it safe when it comes to rock climbing! And for one thing that means not climbing in a shady area after a pounding night of rain. So we explored the Green Mountain National Forest a bit then headed down to Western Mass. for a secret spot in the deep woods… For our first solo top roping climb!

 

We played around for a bit, with different equipment and knots… No matter how confident we felt,  before we went too high we tested and observed the anchors, the rope, and the elements.  The slab was a little wet still so we took it easy. Feeling good about putting up a safe top roping climb for ourselves. Doing some more research on the climb, then off to bed. More to come tomorrow 🙂
