Bouldering!

Bouldering!

Thu, 08/18/2011 - 18:07 by Ananth in response to save yourself

We started climbing a few months ago with our friend L! We go to a gym that mostly specializes in indoor bouldering (although they have some belaying walls). The way it works is that there are molded plastic holds affixed to the wall, and the holds are all marked with different colors - each color represents a route, and each route is marked with a difficulty level. Anyway, there's been a kid's camp there for a couple of weeks, which is adorable - but they don't give a damn about safety! To be fair, I didn't either when I was 7. Kids are made out of rubber, right?

Positive reaction to the idea of a livestream! We'll announce it on Twitter - here's our handles again:

And we'll try to do it more than once, in case you miss the first time.

There are thunderheads rolling in, so I'll sign off here! See you next time!

It is rolling its eyes at me.

Yeah, I noticed that too.

Yeah, I noticed that too. It's all like "pshaw"

Bouldering FTW!

You guys were already cool but you're over the top in my book now. I LOVE that Yuko drew herself flagging. What level are you at? Munchkins hang out at my climbing gym in L.A. too and it's disheartening when one of them monkeys up a route that I've been failing at for the past hour.

OH! Oh.

I seriously thought this was some kind of mushroom trip.
