We could have done the typical lunch and movie date. But, let's be real, the likelihood of me falling asleep in the theatre was pretty great. Instead, Scott convinced me to go outside (waaaaaay outside) my comfort zone, try something totally new, and knock off another Fall Bucket List item.
Our good friends, Tim and Laurie, are into rock climbing, and invited us to join them at their gym. So, away we went.

|The "V" grades coincided with bouldering.|
The 5 grades indicate top roping.
For awhile I was comfortable to sit back and watch Tim and Laurie do their thing.
Climbing the walls without a rope is called bouldering.
They're really good.Then I couldn't take it any longer and needed to get in on the action.
|Rock shoes. Cute, no?|
Scott took his turn as well.
After a few rounds bouldering it was off to top roping, which was a welcome change, as I think every one's forearms were in need of a break.

Getting all geared up.
Dipping my fingers in chalk. Your hands get so sweaty!
Studying the wall, analyzing which rocks I would use.
Using a rope when climbing is called top roping.
With more great coaching up the wall I went.
Before we left I had to get one last selfie for good measure.
Tim and Laurie, if you're reading, thank you so much for such an awesome double date!
