Rock Climbing - overview


A number of us enjoy climbing. Determining a path through a sequence of possible moves is a puzzle that engages both body and mind. Not surprisingly it seems to appeal more to intellectuals than many sports. It is also in some sense the ultimate team sport since you literally put your life in the hands of your friends.

Watson is not too far from the Shwangunks , perhaps the premier climbing area in the north east US.

Much closer though is an indoor climbing gym . A number of go there mostly on Monday and Thursday evening.
