I took up climbing a few years ago in the hope that it would be a good way to get fit and that it would be fun too.
It has certainly been fun, but so far I haven’t been able to keep it up on a regular basis for it to get me fit.
Even so, I still try to go along whenever I can and I always enjoy it although I never seem to progress very far at all.
I’ve also tried my hand at tree climbing too. By that I don’t mean just going up any old tree, but climbing 50ft high oaks with proper safety gear and harnesses and ropes. Now that’s a huge amount of fun.
Sadly in the UK there are only a couple of places you can do this, one of which is on the Isle of Wight which isn’t too far from me and which is a nice place for a quiet holiday too.
