Of late, I’ve been spending some time doing indoors climbing with my buddy at the Gear Co-Ops located in Costa Mesa. I was introduced to the store owner, Terry Lee, by my buddy Kris. It was kind of exciting learning something new. It was even better when Terry offered to take us out for some climbing experience.
Novice of a climber I am, this I’ll admit. Getting a crash course learning as we go, now that’s an adrenaline rush. At first when I saw the Quarry, it was just a normal giant mountainside rock formation which I am used to seeing during my outdoors camping and trekking trips. After a short hike, as we came closer and closer, I saw other climbers scaling the mountain side and realized “wow, this is serious stuff” and started to ponder am I good enough to do this with so little training?
