Indoor Climbing

In May we went indoor climbing.
We went to the wall, which is in Stafford Scout Group’s hut. When I first saw the wall I thought it was small, but some of the routes which had been planned were quite hard, especially the one where you had to climb over a door using only your arms. The overhangs were also quite tricky, as we had to clip the rope to carribenas when we went up and unclip them when we went down i.e. no abseiling down. We had a good time. I hope to go again soon although maybe for longer. I would recommend indoor climbing to anyone who thinks they could do it or are just up for the challenge.
