Have You Ever Been Rock Climbing?

For me, this is only my second time, but it is one of the coolest things I’ve been able to try with E&A!  Our most recent event was cosmic style where we climbed to the beats of our favorite songs with glow-in-the-dark rocks and colors changing all around us.  Imagine this… strapping on your shoes and then tightening the straps on your harness, and walking up to the glowing rock wall… looking up… while the beat of the music is matching the beat of your pulsing nerves.  A 30 foot wall?  Looks like no big deal… until you get halfway up and you realize you’re officially off the ground… JUST DON’T LOOK DOWN!  And it’s not that I have a great fear of heights, it’s just something that I’m not used to!  Much like it is meeting new people… but once you control your breathing and focus on one step at a time, you are calm again.  And before you know it, you are at the top and rapelling down… You touch the ground and smile to yourself in victory!  This is something I never would have tried if it hadn’t been for E&A… I’m slowly getting over my fears of trying new things, but each time I do, I’m one step closer to finding myself, and who I truly am!  Now onto the 60 foot walls… NEXT TIME!!
