I have been climbing for more than a year now. Most of the time I go to Manchester Climbing Centre because is a walk distance of my place and they have awesome indoor lead climbing walks. Unfortunately, they only have a small indoor bouldering area which means that if you are starting climbing you might end up bored because you can only climb a few of the routes, this was what happen with me when I started.
On Tuesday, I met someone, Ruby, who was boudering for the first time, they just had finished the boudering 30 minutes intruction course. I invited Ruby to climb with my two boudering partners, Tom and Bernard, and we all had a fun session.
On Wednesday, I met someone else, Ivan, who was visiting Manchester Climbing Centre due a work week in town. Ivan is a incredible climber and I had a very inspiring night.
The rest of the week, I was thinking about one of the books that I read in 2018, Liars and Outliers: Enabling the Trust that Society Needs to Thrive by Bruce Schneier. The book talk about trust system that we developed over the years and is the backbone of our capacity to leave in society. I believe that climbing is the ultimate team-building exercises and everyone should do it regularly.
