Used motorhomes for sale come in all shapes and sizes. RVers come in all shapes and sizes. They have a variety of different food preferences. Some like it hot and some like it bland. Some enjoy the serene side of nature. Others enjoy the adventure inherent in seeing and doing new things. Some don’t particularly enjoy nature at all, but they purchased used motorhomes for sale because they wanted to spend more time with family. They love the RV lifestyle for the opportunity to hang out with their friends and family without spending a lot of money (and without staying home all the time).
For those who do love getting out in nature, rock climbing should be on the list of activities to learn to love. And for those who have never particularly been obsessed with nature or outdoor recreational activities…rock climbing could be a good place to start. The recreational vehicle provides the home base while RVers enjoy the physical and mental challenges of the sport.
Rock Climbing for Beginners – Get Started:
- It’s a good idea to start a career of rock climbing indoors where paid (and trained) employees will watch every move and make sure that each and every beginner learns the correct procedures and techniques to stay safe and secure while climbing.
- Wear long pants, not shorts. Climbers everywhere will appreciate the bit of clothing between them and their harness and belayers everywhere will appreciate not seeing the show that comes when short shorts are combined with a rock climbing harness.
- Get familiar with the harness being used. If an employee or more experienced friend is helping, watch closely to see how it is done.
- Don’t get overwhelmed. No one remembers everything they are “taught” on their first day climbing. Focus on the necessities: climbing up the wall (or the rock cliff if the first climbing experience is in the great outdoors).
- When possible, always use legs over arms. Legs are stronger than arms so climbers should always rely on them for their strength. To move up the wall or cliff, place the feet higher and then stand. The trick is pushing with the legs rather than pulling with the arms.
- When resting or “thinking,” do so with straight arms. This means that arm muscles aren’t being strained and will preserve needed strength for actual climbing.
Rock climbing is a great way to enjoy the great outdoors. RVers looking for activities that will get them excited to pull their recreational vehicle out of storage on weekends need search no more. The expenses to get started are minimal and RVers can almost always find a good climbing spot on almost any trip’s route. It just takes a little bit of courage to get going on that first climb.
