Something different

Filed under: Canada, Sport — K2 in Canada @ 12:13 AM

The weather forecast was for heavy rain today. So last night Jeff asked a friend of his if he could take us climbing in an indoor climbing gym. Jeremy has been climbing for 12 years – indoors and outdoors – and he makes it look soooo easy. Jeff mastered all the way up to 5.9 difficulty on the routes. I only got to 5.7. Probably doesn’t mean much to most of my readers but let me tell you, once those little hand holds get smaller and smaller the degree of difficulties goes up exponentially. Never mind overhangs and the worst of all bouldering… The later seems to be pure strength and since I had hardly been to the gym all winter I didn’t even manage the easiest one. We had been to the lake for almost an hour and a half before going climbing since the promised rain didn’t materialize. It was a bit breezy though – crosswind and maybe I was just more tired. While we were in the gym the sun was even shining for a bit. We rewarded ourselves with food and beer afterwards 🙂
