Rock Climbing: One of my favourite activities

Posted on: September 10, 2008

A certain friend of mine, (Ozzyfrog, to be precise) recently posted on his blog with a piece about his views on rock climbing. I am going to say, right now, that he is wrong. Rock climbing is a wonderful activity. While I agree that it in not something that I would do as a sport, I love indoor rock climbing. Outdoor is good too, but requires long trips to get to rock faces and is much harder. It is lots of fun, and you get a real sense of achievement when you get to the top.

As Ozzyfrog said, "mmm..."

As Ozzyfrog said,"mmm..."

When you get down, you just want to go straight up again. The only other thing that would be nice would be a nice cool glass of lemonade at the bottom (picture shamelessly stolen from Ozzyfrog).
He is very wrong about the safety features, too. For starters, someone would have to work pretty hard to sneeze for a long enough time for someone to fall to their death. Also, the way that the pulley system is set up means that even if they are not holding the rope, you don’t fall fast enough to get killed, or in most cases do any major damage at all. Another thing: what is Ozzy talking about when he talks about the 50 and 100 metre falls? That is the hight of some of the buildings in the CBD! At the rock climbing place I go to, the roof is 16 metres from the floor, and the rock walls are 10-15 metres.
I must end my post here, as I have to take the dogs for a walk, but for those reading, you know how right I am.

I just saw your comment. I am going to spend time now writing a Blog that will make you squirm. Is it possible to have 85% spelling mistakes and still be coherent? Lets find out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

AHHHHHH!!!! NOOOOOOO!!!!!!!! THE PAIN!!!!!!!!!!!
Oh, and I am not copying Ozzy’s idean, I am engaging in a Deblatog.
BTW, your spelling and grammar were atrocious in those last two comments.

Caiphas, calm down. He is not stealing my ideas, if anything he gave me the idea to write about rock climbing in the first place.

And no, I will not let you write a blog with 85% of it incorrect.

Good post Tamasys, but unfortunately it is completly wrong 🙂
