I spent the weekend climbing with friends, in Cosmic County, the Blue Mountains. It had been over a year, and I had lost the “touch”, it took me until lunchtime on Saturday to really get back into it.

But Saturday night as I watched the sun go down, I really appreciated what I had been missing: Fresh air, beautiful scenery, good exercise, and good friends in whom you have great trust (they are on the belay end of the rope!).

So – anyone else do any climbing? Anywhere good near JKT? I have a good rack and half a dozen ropes if anyone wants a partner….. (Im about grade 18-20).

I'd love to do some climbing, but I don't know any natural place to do it that's convenient. There is an outdoor climbing wall, about 10 meters high, at a little university near my house. So I imagine some of the students have a "climbing club" and would also know some mountains within a couple hours' drive.
