Indoor rock climbing

I went rock climbing at Triangle Rock Club last night for the first time in over a year.  I tried indoor rock climbing a number of times last year at TRC with the local rock climbing meetup group, got belay certified and although it was fun, I just didn't want to invest the time and energy to get really good at it!  I decided that my priorities were running, mountain biking and crossfitting.  However, since I'm on a winter break right now, I thought it would be fun to try again since I've have a lot more upper body strength now.  Rock climbing routes are numbered in terms of difficulty.  I only did fairly easy climbs rated 5.6 and 5.8 but it was fun and not hard at all anymore. I remember sweating a lot last year just trying to do a 5.8 but that didn't happen this time. I don't think I'll be rock climbing much in the future but it was good to get out of my comfort zone.  Sometimes you need to inject a new activity for fun and this fit the bill.
