Defying Gravity thru Wall Climbing

I’m starting to tick off those moments that I had on my IG posts. Guess, it’s always been easier to tell stories when you have photos with you and there’s no need to upload a bunch when you can copy the URL and paste it directly to your post.

Much of some new things I’ve tried last summer, including my solo backpacking and diving, was my first ever wall climbing.

I’ve heard this over few months ago when they launched the first ever indoor wall climbing in Davao. But never did I try this until my colleagues won two tickets as free wall climbing during our acceptance ceremony. That’s like one climb-one try promo, so they chose me as the other one. HAHAHA

This was the one to conquer. the highest spot reached up to 32 feet. The first time we tried, it was all one-time, with me reaching the left side and my colleague at the right side.

I made the first attempt but goodness, Cha was pretty strong and even we ended up being tie in the middle.

Clearly, my lack of exercise was the one to blame. All my energy went down and I was stuck in the middle. I was so confused and agitated since there were lesser blocks in the middle part. If there is, they’re pretty small with my big hands.

The next thing I knew, I was the only one left hanging while she had already finished the course.

I went down as if I was being dragged by the gravity. From then, I learned that wall climbing, like any other physical activity, requires a lot of practice and patience. We left for home with my knees and legs still shaking.

The next thing, I was invited by another colleague, Scent for another wall climbing session. This time, I was too ambitious to reach the middle.

I was so keen with the instruction.

My first attempt really went bad. Hahaha

I spent too much time asking question about which block to hold until my energy died down.

I tried the second time.

Until the third one, clearly my energy faded away. I had to accept my defeat. 😦

Got to get up there- real and fast!

It was all worth it but part of me was screaming for another chance. But the instructor told me to rest and try it next time. Ha! For the second time, my heart broke.

Maybe next time or will there be a next time.

P100 for one session

P180 for one hour
