Mountaineering

I started a mountaineering class yesterday. Our first activity was rock climbing. I'm big with weak fingers, which led to lame attempts to ascend each rock. I almost made it to the top of the first and easiest climb, but my strength gave out. The second, and last climb ended miserably as Dallan, the instructor was patiently waiting to take everything down and head home. I got about a quarter of the way up, asked Jared if he had me, and then let go... the fall gave a good pull on my nuts. If you've ever worn a climbing harness, you know what I'm talking about. You have to be careful with the little guys, or you'll pop one. Ouch! The two climbs (for those of you who know and are interested) are only rated 5.5 and 5.8. We're going out again next week, but to a different place (and possibly indoors at the Quary). Later in the semester we're supposed to give ice climbing a try. That should be incredible...
