Yesterday was such a fun day. Even though we had to be on the road by 5:30 a.m it was still worth the drive. Yesterday me and four other people from my work decided to go to Stone Summit in Atlanta. Originally I was already going to be there but they decided to change the time of the concert. SO instead of already being there and being able to meet them I was stuck with having to do ten to twelve hour drive in one day just like everybody else but that is ok. So we all were on the road at 5:30 a.m and we all were super excited about going to a new gym. This one had top rope and bouldering.
If you aren't familiar with Climbing then here is the breakdown of the difference between the two. Top rope is with a rope and harness and the walls are between thirty to sixty feet. With Bouldering there is no rope and no harness but the walls are between ten to sixteen feet high. Both are dangerous, accidents can happen but it is still so much fun to do.
Surprisingly, we all passed. Every single one. Honestly we were all so excited and I felt pretty good about it myself. It can be a lot to remember sometimes and even though it was my first time using an ATC instead of a GriGri I felt pretty good. With all us passing we went to the top rope walls and started climbing. I will say that Rock Out has made my endurance and strength much better then when I first tried top rope. I was doing 5.9's and 5.10's and when I first started I could only do 5'8's. I felt so confident and felt like I could do top rope for forever. We spent around five hours total just climbing away and by the time we finished I knew that we all were super satisfied. I honestly wish we had a top rope place near us that was like Stone Summit. There was so much to do, there were so many routes and it was so refreshing to go climb there. It re-lit the climbing candle, which I really needed.
So thank you Stone Summit for the amazing Climbing experience. We will be back and with more people!
