Climb Iowa: A Fantastic Christmas Break Excursion

in sports •  9 months ago

Thanks to a generous gift from my sister, the @nepd family braved the -20 degree weather here in midwest America to get our climb on.

Climb Iowa had a 32 fantastic courses to climb on and after a brief, but thorough, 15 minute rapid-fire introductory course, we were able to use the auto-belay machines and get on the wall.

There were also multiple bouldering apparatuses, which the kids loved climbing to the top, no matter how nervous it made their parents.

At the end of two hours, we were exhausted. I joked with my sister that it was truly the gift that kept on giving as the soreness persisted for a couple days afterward.

Here are some highlights of myself, @patriot, Mrs. @nepd and the rest of the crew enjoying the day indoors.

Visit your local climbing gym and try it out - it was an absolute blast.

I have fear of high places hh i tried it one Time Traduire & I felt dizzy ^^
Hope You Enjoy with Your Familly :)

Great looking crew you have there! I’m sure @patriot enjoys being taller than his mom.

I know the feeling about the gift that keeps on giving - climbing works some dormant muscles, lol.

We had just lifted the day before, so our pecs / tris took an absolute beating.

Wao that adrenaline no place to doubt that's good for your family pretty heart

I do some bouldering myself, and I love it. It's such an amazing sport. Clears your mind, strengthen your body in every way, and it can be surprisingly fun, as you said. I have one tip though. Try it with real climbing/bouldering shoes. It helps a lot!

Bouldering as a little kid was actually what got me into climbing back in the days, so +1 on that one bringing the little ones!

Overall good post, especially liked the last one, family photo of the year ;)

Otherwise, if you're into travelling, fitness, self-development etc feel free to check out my channel, in any case keep up the good work and I'll see you around! 😄

Rock climbing is such a great way to, not only develop phisical skills but also to empower self confidence and to make us "grow". Amazing that people take kids to climb! Kudos for you my friend! Rock on!

This looks like a great time! We have a similar yet smaller facility in our area, but I have never done it before!!
