Yesterday, on our off day we decided to experience something different. If you guys don’t know by now NoExpectationers are most definitely lifers aka adventurous bka “jumpers into the abyss” if you get our drift. Nevertheless, we’ve been wanting to go rock climbing for months, so yesterday was the day to do it.
As you guys know, we are based out of Atlanta, Georgia and there are a million and one places to go rock climbing or to do anything else in the city. We stumbled upon a local rock climbing facility near Little Five Points/Moreland Avenue, which is also a Pilate’s and cross fit gym.
When we first walked into the gym we were a little nervous. We’ve never been rock climbing and it was a room filled of beautiful, adventure-filt kids climbing different walls and ropes. A staff member greeted us, explained the rules, gave us rented harnesses, and helped us begin the climb on one of three beginner walls.
If you haven’t been rock climbing before let us tell you guys something, it will most definitely get your upper body strength together. We were incredibly out of breath. A water bottle or a gallon of water (depending on how long you will be climbing that day) is a must have. Your arms, back, legs, and fingers/hands will get a lot of attention, so stretch before and after your climb. Those later aches and pains are worth the risk, the challenge, and the boldness of the climbs that encouraged them.
No matter where you’re at in Atlanta or anywhere else in the country or around the world and you want to do something daring, physically challenging, and or life changing, rock climbing is a catharsis. If you’re in the city of Atlanta I would recommend Wall Crawler Rock Club. The staff members are very hands on, knowledgeable, and professional. Anybody from all walks of life, ages, and backgrounds are welcomed and the climb is everything!
