Belay That Climber!

I had my first rock climbing class a few days ago. It was good, I learned how to belay and tie knots. I really wish I knew more knots; it seems like it could be very practical. I need to look up different knots, such as tying two ropes together or a knot with an easy release. Hmmm... Anyways, back on topic.

I bought some rock climbing shoes but I have yet to buy a harness. Grrr... I will have to wait until next week. I am already over budget. YIKES!

And the funny story about my first rock climbing class... I think an "unkosher" joke. Somebody said something about, "Make sure the knot is tied correctly!" And I said something stupid to the effect of, "Yes, please. I'd hate to fall and end the class early!" I was completely joking and being jovial but I think discussion of a "fall" is similar to shouting "bomb" on a plane. Whoops! *sigh*
