3 days later and my arms are still a little sore. It was a good workout.

The wall was 'easy' because we only tried the 5/4 route or just climbed without following a route. We were actually trying some of the V0 and V1 bouldering routes. The V1 behind the main wall still eludes me. I'll get it next time though.

I didn't know if I'd like it, but I really enjoyed myself. I wouldn't want to do anything like that wall without ropes, but can see myself doing some top roping in the near distant future. The main issue for me is gear - I have none, so I'd have to rent. That brings me to my next issue - no money.

Hey Kevin,

Glad you had a great time, I have numerous pairs of shoes, depending on your size, and a few extra harnesses that might work for you. Interested in getting started with out the hassle of coming up with big money? Let me know.

Welcome to the sport guys. I am dubious about how y'all got kevin on the wall, but as you know you have an open invite if you desire to head down to CT for a little Trap Rock. I am also willing to sample some of the rock in the pioneer valley (north-central Mass.) Then again, there is always the Gunks!

Great to hear!
I was at Rocksport tonight and people there had good things to say about E-city. It's a long way from my neck of the woods, but I'll have to make a point of checking it out some time.
Of course, when you're ready to dabble in the outdoors, give me a shout!

Hey guys,
I think AIR (Albany's Indoor Rockgym) is a great place to go before you go outdoors. I used to volunteer there (about 10 yrs ago) to be able to climb whenever I wanted. I started out learning to climb there and was able to hone my technique before I went outdoors. I usually boulder, and going to a rock gym like AIR allows you to get in shape and stay in shape over the winter. Look for the routes on the walls because they change frequently and vary in difficulty. Hope this helps, see you guys outdoors!!

I agree with Boreal Chickadee and Little Rickie - Rochester's Rock Ventures is great!

I hope not.

The pictures are priceless. I'm glad for you and your son.
