One morning my roommate Eli (referred to as “Crip Nasty” in the Colarbone Chronicles) and our friend Chuck-Ross invited my boyfriend and I to go rock climbing. Having little trouble at rock climbing gyms in the past I figured it would be a fun morning of hanging out and little physical exercise.

After picking up some gear we all arrived at Butcher Knife park excited and ready to go. Now, Eli and Chuck-Ross do this about three days a week but I was certain I could handle the 20 maybe 30 foot rock we were climbing. Oh how wrong I was.
Without the brightly colored knobs to lead my way up the rock I had a difficult time navigating the way. So after several failed attempts of only making it half way I finally gave up.
Although Eli and Chuck-Ross were the only two to make it to the top we all had a blast. Not only did we get a great work out and have a lot of laughs in the process, it was also a bit of a trust exercise as we belayed each other up and down the rocks. This random excursion is yet another reason why I love going to school in Steamboat.
