^ 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 figured most of it would be in the hands and forearms. At least, back in the days when I lived in Silicon Valley and went climbing with some friends, those were the parts of my body that were the most sore (followed by the lower back). I was probably not lean enough at the time (was about 10 lbs overweight). Weight is your worst enemy when it comes to gravity!

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Forearms are definitely affected. It's a full body workout and seriously addicting. The most common indoor climbing injuries come from overuse, because muscles gain strength far faster than tendons and people won't take the time off to fully recover.

Our Shetland Sheepdog puppy, Max. He's eight weeks old and just came home with us today. If this photo doesn't make you smile you have no soul.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

He'd cuddle you right back! Shelties can be nervous, but Max is very outgoing. So far he's settling in remarkably well. Our Golden Retriever, Marley, is very excited to have a little brother, but is backing away a bit because Max is so small. The cats can't stand Max, but the cats hate Marley, too, so it's nothing personal.
