Went bouldering tonight at the Nottingham Indoor Climbing Centre so I’m typing with really sore fingers!
Its been a while since I’ve been climbing and I could only manage 5a graded routes.
There was this kid there, who couldn’t have been older than 11/12, doing lead climbing on one of far end overhanging walls. He was very good and his dad, who was belaying, told me not only was he in the top 10 or 15 for his age group but he’d only been climbing 14 months!
Anyway, my arms are killing me so I’d better cut this post short. I’m intending to start climbing regularly again and build back up to the 6a’s which I could just about manage a year and a half ago.
