Rock Climbing and Sheetrock

I went indoor rock climbing for the first time at Rock Ventures. It was a team building activity through work, and it was a lot of fun! Here I am in a lovely harness. I always thought it would be fun to try, but I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it. My childhood desire to climb trees was finally put to good use! Despite my uncertainty of even being able to climb given my... um....lack....of upper body strength, I made it all the way to the top of this medium-level wall.  Right up there with the orange fish.

I would like to try this wall next time I go. Not sure how I would do with the slanted angle. I did climb the blue area all the way to the far right.

Here's a look at some of my co-workers climbing other walls. It was really fun learning how to belay and support a climber, as well as climbing. The instructors said that people of all ages can learn to climb, from 2 years old to 92 years old! 

Speaking of walls, the walls in our bathroom are really taking shape, making it look like a room again.

The drywall is almost complete. Some more taping, spackling and sanding to do.

Making progress!
