Climbing with Alexander

sunny 25 °C

Today we went to climb with Alexander who was my honey's best workmate.

Alexander was a fresher for climbing rocks. It was his fourth time to come here, also was the first time to climb with me ( the previous three times he climbed with my honey, when i was in China).

Today my honey taught him how to climb the rocks with managing the hooks. It was almost the same practice for the real climbing outdoor. This way needed have much more power and energy, as well as needed more skills and balance. Alexander could do it nicely at the begining, but with the roads getting more and more difficult, he could not finish the whole one, just only half. But whatever, he still liked climbing, and my honey also encouraged him to be a good climber.
