Last Tuesday a few of our club members enjoyed an evening of indoor rock climbing at the NJ Rock Gym in Faifield. The evening was spearheaded by our own Ken Fox. Our first time rock climbers trusted the expertise of both Ken Fox and Lee DeSantis as belayers to steady the ropes they were dangling on. Lee’s daughter, Heather conquered new challenges although climbing many times before as well as my daughter Lindsey who has never climbed but loved every minute of it. There was Diane Bogert and Olivier Monod who are also newcomers to the sport. They also enjoyed looking down from the ropes and just hoped they would be able to still ski and bike after dangling 40 feet off the ground. Joe Infusino also joined the group and has climbed before. The evening was then capped off with a drink and snack at the Bonefish Grill. I also joined the group as a pure spectator being on the disabled list, but hope to join in the future. Until next time, Happy Climbing.
