Climbing with Dinkar

And this weekend I dragged Dinkar off climibing again (though I didn't exactly have to twist his arm). And Pat came up so that we'ld have two who could belay, and would go for a three man rotation on climbing. This worked out very well because the pace we set for ourselves gave each of us a good amount of time to rest our arms between climbs. And that mean that whereas I normally can get about 5 routes in before my fingers say "no more!" I was able to get more like 8 and had some real fun.

And Dinkar is amazingly talented at climbing. I kept picking harder and harder routes for him to try and by the end he was doing the same routes that Pat and I were doing. I don't think it's going to be too hard to convince him to become a member and start climbing regularly. I'll just have to play a bit on his guilt and remind him that there's a free belay lesson with a membership sign-up.
