I know the blog is the adventures of C.A.B, but mommy needs playtime as well; so on this day mommy was invited to a birthday playdate with her girlfriends at Earth Treks Climbing Centers in Columbia (725-C Columbia Gateway Drive, Columbia, MD 21046 (410)872-0060); please call for current hours and prices. This was totally new to me, but I am open to something different. I have never been to anything like this and hey I am always climbing monkey bars and play sets with Collin; let’s do this.
When we first walked in and had to sign waivers and put harnesses on; I thought what have I gotten myself into? Next we went into the room of walls; overwhelming! They are in every size and which way going up the walls! For the size of party we had of adventurous divas lol; we had two instructors. One spotted the climber so if you fell you wouldn’t hit the ground! Good to know and the other guided you on the wall! After a short intro on what to do they let us climb! I was nervous, but once I started I was hooked I made it to the top on my first try!!! Yeah! What! What! C.A.B’s mom is in the house!!!! A little confession it was the beginner’s wall, but I made it!
We paid for an all-day pass which was $20 and a harness $5; you can rent shoes, but I climbed in my tennis shoes with no problem and please make sure to wear comfortable clothing. Parent’s if you are looking for something fun and different to do; I suggest rock climbing! It was fun and great exercise! When Collin saw the pictures he wanted to go; so look forward to seeing a post of both of us rock climbing in the future! Momma’s going to make it to the top first!!! Oh yeah!!!
