Are you an avid outdoors lover? Do you enjoy hiking, swimming, running, cycling, and walking? How about rock climbing? I remember the first time I tried rock climbing, having the harness tightly strapped to me, and proceeding to trust the people beneath me to hold the rope in case I came tumbling down. It's a whole new experience from the usual outdoor activities most people take part in, all the other ones involve different terrain but you're still travelling, for the most part, horizontally. Sure you may hike, run, or bike up a hill, but the angle is still relatively leveled. Rock climbing on the other hand is totally different, you're literally just going straight up a cliff, defying the laws of gravity, and hoisting yourself higher and higher until you reach the uppermost point. You're lifting yourself and analyzes every move that will allow you to proceed to the next ledge. It uses different muscles, different techniques, and a different mentality than other sports.
