Stoney Point is Dangerous
Monday I went to Stoney Point Park for some bouldering. It was a good time... I quickly learned that outdoor climbing is nothing like indoor wall climbing. Woo... it's fun though. I met some dudes there who showed me a thing or two... or everything I know to this point about climbing. Regardless, even though I never made it higher up that my own head (I can't even stand on top of a 20 ft boulder... dangit), there's something special about a dude who can cling to a rock like a gecko, and then leap. Putting all fear aside while trying to grab a ledge barely bigger than two fingers. I didn't try that... apparently I have the wrong shoes. Ha! Another excuse to go to REI and make a purchase. After that and a climbing mat, I'll officially own everything in the store.
