Last night I joined my friend Jeremy at his rock climbing gym, Planet Granite last night.
I don’t have much experience with that kind of training but I always like to get out and try new things. Plus it’s a lot of fun.
Before we began bouldering I showed him a few things on the ropes and rings. I’ve wanted to do this video for a long time but didn’t have access to any rope until now.[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-zTYDPBio78]
This video shows how you can climb a rope upside down. (Hint: using your legs is a big help.) In fact, Jeremy was easily able to do it with a little coaching.
The second piece is climbing with a rope in each hand. Tougher on the grip but just as fun.
If you want some more detail on rope climbing be sure to check out Rope Climbing in the Feats of Strength section.
I’ll have a couple other videos from our excursion later on.
