My indoor rock wall

Back in the day when I was young I'm not a kid anymore but someday I sit and wish I was a kid again. (really old song)
Before cycling, I used to be really into rock climbing. So into rock climbing in fact that I took out my dining room furniture and built an inverted rock wall so I could get stronger and work out at home. I loved this thing. Here's a pic of me on it for the very first time- in subsequent workouts I was protected on the bottom by a gymnastics mat, and I'd wear my actual climbing shoes. And then there was the time I popped a tendon doing three finger pull ups. Yes, a popped tendon makes an audible pop and then no more pull ups for me for about 3 months.
After Matt and I bought our house in Georgia, we had a new roof put on- the roofer thought I was crazy when I asked if it was possible to install anchors so I could practice my rope work while hanging from the house. What was his deal?!

Well his deal was "it's Georgia" and the though you were going to actually be into deviant pornographic moves.
