09:41 am - Climb the rock
 So... my arms arent sore? They should be. Its probably one of those times where they progessively get more painful and then tomorrow morning Im going to be in a wolrd of hurt. I seriously love rock climbing though, its so much fun. Definitely going to keep on doing it over the summer. Now the question is... do I buy shoes and a harness or do I continue to rent them... I found shoes for $50 wich is REALLY cheap. Theyre usually at the very least $70 or $80 and I found a harness for about $35. So really it would be worth it to buy them but I would end up spending just under $200 on gear and a membership while I dont have a job. Go me.

You need to make sure you start out with fitted beginner shoes. Getting something contorted, even if it looks like its straight, can be damaging and really shocking to your foot and needs to be worked up to. The harness has to be an approved style to climb at rocks and ropes. For both you need to be fitted because harnesses come in different sizes and styles, where the sit is really important, and shoes aren't fitted the same as normal shoes. You really need to be fitted by a AMGA certified climber who knows how to fit you and knows what you need to climb safely at our gym.
