A successful rock climbing expedition takes skill, strength and guts. Here at Wilkes-Barre Rock Climbing Gym, I decided to overcome by fear and conquer the indoor rock climbing wall. Instructor Dave Dorbad will be coaching me to the top, but before I climb, I need to have the proper gear.
“Lets do this, its like putting on a pair of pants, one foot through each hole…”
After putting on the harness, I also needed to wear the proper shoes.
“OK These feel pretty good.”
Sharla: “I trust you that you’re not going to let me fall….have you ever let anybody fall?”
Dave: “Me, myself? No!”
Sharla: “OK! that’s the answer i like to hear… I don’t know if you are lying or not, but that’s the answer I like to hear.”
Following the marked path, makes it easier to get to the top.
