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.

Indoor Climbing

Sports in a climbing hall

overcast 2 °C

In winter, the weather becomes not so nice, it is impossible for us to go outside to climb mountains or hike frequently. So, my honey and I choose the indoor sports club, and go there to climb rocks in bad weather.

Actually, we have already climbed rocks for more than 10 times, but never had a chance to take some pictures. Fortunately, this time, my classmate Monica, a girl from Macao, and her Austrian boyfriend, went to climb rocks with us. It was a good chance for us to take some pictures and make some movies of each other.

It was the first time for Monica to climb rocks, so my honey taught her how to secure her boyfriend climbing. But later, seemed like she still could not completely understand how to operate the rope, then I taught her again.

After teaching Monica, it was time for us to climb...

Wow, would reach the top soon, go go go!

When I went down, I was already very sweaty.
