A Blogger’s First Climb at Vertical Rock: Jealous?

This blogger got to do his first top-rope climb at Vertical Rock last night, where they already have so many routes up. I completed a couple of 5.9s but I was outfoxed by a 5.10a and a 5.10d. I also saw a couple of VR employees setting bouldering problems. The V7 they were working on looks like it’s going to be a doozy, even they were having issues beating it!

Climbing at Vertical Rock gave me a new-found respect for climbers like Nina Caprez, who are both incredibly strong and technically sound.

Check the video below to see her tearing it up, and try not to be too jealous that I got a sneak-peek at the facility.
