Hiking the mile or so trail back to the car is always a pleasant end to the day: passing other climbers and hikers, trading brief stories about the climbs of the day, and chatting with old friends. Our little guy is shy. He has a difficult time meeting strangers and even balks at saying \"hi\" to the guys who work in our building. But that day, perhaps buoyed by the confidence gained from climbing his first mountain or the feeling of kinship with his fellow climbersor maybe just the pride of carrying his cool backpack with a couple of carabiners hanging off the webbinghe was right there with us, smiling and bantering with the people we passed. It was a big moment.
There are actually lots that you can do to ensure that you will enjoy hiking in the rain. The most important thing is to be prepared with the right clothing for the wet weather and the cold temperatures. You will need a good waterproof breathable rain jacket and pants. Don’t go cheap on your rain gear as you will quickly find out that it is either not waterproof or does not breathe. If your rain gear doesn’t breathe it will cause the moisture from your body to condense on the inside of your gear resulting you getting wet not from the rain but from your own perspiration. Get a jacket made by a good outdoor apparel manufacturer like Columbia Sportswear, The North Face or Patagonia and you won’t go wrong.
The bottom line is that if you want to safely climb rock climbing walls, choose an indoor rock climbing facility which will offer you plenty of opportunities to improve your skills while at the same time not put you under any undue risk as would be the case if you were to go outdoors and try your luck.
