    Rock climbing?

    Just wondering how many have tried rock climbing, how did it go(was it too hard for being worthwhile), and where? I'm going to give it a try this summer.

    I have a 20 foot adaptive rock climbing wall in San Diego.

    We've had some adult incompletes try it with some success. We also have a rope ladder that goes to the roof that a T10 did a few days ago without assistance (he was harnessed only for safety). You can check out the video here if you scroll down... http://www.facebook.com/pages/Medica...b/316153178812

    They have a 25 foot wall at my local YMCA that isn't adaptive, I've done it. What is actually different about one that is "adaptive" other than maybe having all hand holds?
