Yay! Did you like bouldering?!
Yes, I loved it! Definitely going to go again. Wish I had more pictures of me doing it. My 38th birthday activity showed I wasn't completely out if shape!

^ Wow, that looks like fun! Do you find your hand muscles get strong really quickly or does it take a long time to build up to it?

Funny, in Ruaidhri's photo I'm like where are the belaying lines? Then I spotted the padding below.
I fell from about 13 feet at one point, near the end of the day. I was trying a harder difficulty path, and the handhold I wanted was a few inches out if reach, and with my legs shaking and tired...I leaped for it, and felt my fingers slide off as I dropped. Right on my derrière. Didn't hurt, but it was shocking!
