Sonny and Cara climbing high
On Saturday roughly 20 of us drove over to Sunnyvale to test ourselves with a new sport. Olivia organized a field trip for us to Planet Granite to do some rock climbing. It was a blast. Some of us enjoyed the belaying and going really high while others preferred the challenge of bouldering without a harness.
Both types of indoor climbing were great tests of upper and lower body control and strength as well as midline stability and confidence. Highlights of the day for me were watching Sonny demonstrate his skills, Laurie's spider-woman speed, Dave spending more than a half hour determined to finish a route, and improving myself from a 5.7 to a 5.9 in difficulty over the day. It was also great to see the whole Hegler family on the rocks and lots of CrossFitters having fun doing something new.
It was a great trip with wonderful people followed up by a yummy paleo friendly dinner at a near by Mongolian BBQ joint.
Thank you Olivia for a fantastic adventure.
