The Mia Maids (the young women's group I work with in Church ages 14-16) went rock climbing this week. It was a ton of fun even though I was at the bottom belaying (is that right?) everyone--caught every one of them when they fell! I hadn't planned on climbing from the beginning because I suffer from a fear of heights, but as the evening wore on I began to get tempted. I didn't actually succumb to temptation because I was wearing jeans that would have made climbing difficult and if I was going to break down after getting 5 feet off the ground I didn't want to do it in front of the girls. But I'm definitely thinking that at some time in the future I might just want to give it a try. Does anyone out there rock climb? Do you have tips for rock climbing with a fear of heights?
All of our activities next month revolve around wedding stuff (the younger girls (12-14) somehow ended up in charge of nearly the month of activities and that is what they picked). Our rock climbing girls didn't seem quite so interested in the ideas but we shall see.
