Photograph Friday #3: Top Out Climbing

I actually took these last week... They aren't very good. The camera on my phone isn't the greatest (which is why my wife gave me this iPhone 4 to begin with -- she wanted to get a new version with better resolution!). Also, I know nothing about composition... or simply how to take something in focus. But hey, this is part of my New Year's resolution... so here they are... for better or worse!

Unlike these photographs, my daughters are excellent. They are second degree black belts with brilliant minds... which means they could beat me in a debate and in the Octogon.

To try something new for the New Year, they joined a cool gym call Top Out Climbing. This is the easy boulder...

But things get much more vertically challenging than this.... I've tried this once... and although it was fun, being up this high -- even with a harness -- makes me a little bit nervous. 

Still, I think if I was going to join a gym it would be this place. I'm not interested in lifting weights or running on treadmills. I'd rather pretend to be climbing Mt. Everest or scaling Half Dome. 


  1. This looks like so much fun! And I love how you would prefer an imaginitive exercise. It is very writer-like :)

  2. I recently came across your blog and hve been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don’t know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog, I will keep visiting this blog very often.
