Spider-Man

So I've got a new nickname.



This grainy pic is brought to you by Ninjacq. (Can you say, "Super Camera Zoom, Activate"?)

I am nowhere near the skill level of the pros, but I think I'm progressing nicely. I take pride in the fact that I've finished walls that some guys haven't finished. Haha. (Sorry boys, it's not a diss!) I'm happy I successfully climbed wall 4 again (Lei, I only fell once. And no dancing this time!), and even happier that I got to climb the wall pictured above. I looove the feeling of conquering a wall, and overcoming the pain and exhaustion.

Must give props to Roaches "MVP" Ruel, who coached me when I got to the hard part. Hearing the instructions he hollered from below, I learned a bit about twisting, and using rocks I otherwise would have dismissed, and resting against a corner. I finally understood why people use chalk though. Some of the rocks were so hard to grasp coz my hands were a bit sweaty.

I was touched to hear people cheering from below--it's cool having people who want you to finish that wall, supporting you, rah-rah-rah-ing away as you painstakingly make your way to the top. As I tapped the top of the wall and wiped the sweat dripping from my brow (and neck and back...), a sense of fulfillment just washed over me. Mike's quotable quote: "Tamo 'tong si Tisha, wala na ngang kalaban, competitive pa rin!" What can I say? I ain't no quitter!
