Fuzzy - not just a name, a way of life

Rock climbing rocks!

I'd never really given much thought to the "sport" of rock climbing. Sure, I've seen it done, including Jeremy Clarkson racing a bunch of free-climbers in a Top Gear episode. I'm visiting my team in San Francisco, and the opportunity came up to give rock climbing a go. And the result?


It is seriously awesome fun, and I now have a belaying certificate to add to the pile of useless IT qualifications I've gathered :-). The best bit was using the auto-belay - like a giant inertia-reel seat belt, but with a "slow descent" option. It lets you climb the 15-to-20 metre wall, and then simply jump off backwards! That was cool!
