Who enjoys climbing?

Does anyone here enjoy climbing? I just started to have a go at it at the start of this year. First of all I tried the climbing wall at Glasshoughton - that was pretty nerve wracking. And then I had a go at climbing Malham Cove - that was even more nerve wracking. Over the summer it was too hot to do anything, and I have only just got back into it - with more practice on the climbing wall again.

For the future I would to go climbing in Wales - Snowdonia to be exact. I have heard that there are some really good climbs there.

@AmyRichmond That's great! It's one of the things I want to try someday. How did you start? How long did you practice? I'm more interested in wall climbing as I've seen some indoor tracks which are very challenging.

It has been a while since I went mountain climbing but I frequently go for the indoor track challenges. Both activities require good fitness levels and I haven't been at my best in terms of exercising. @AmyRichmond have you ever thought of climbing Mount Everest?

I have only done a bit of climbing wall climbing when I was in London. I would love to have a go at climbing Malham Cove - I have hiked up the valley, but never thought of climbing the Cove until you mentioned it. It is so beautiful around Malham.

I am not very experienced at climbing, so I think it would take a lot more practice before I was ready to tackle something like the Cove.

There is some rich history about the Malham Cove with its formation dating back to about 12,000 years ago. The beauty about going for a climbing expedition with a group is the fun that comes with trying to compete. However, free climbing is the most challenging and I wonder if anyone has tried this before?

It has been quite a number of years since I participated in mountain climbing or rock climbing. They were quite challenging, especially mountain climbing, but I felt really satisfied and proud at the end.

I used to think that we always have to pay and go in groups whenever we want to use any official public spots like that. I didn't know there is a thing such as free climbing. It's probably better to climb under supervision in case of emergency situations.
