You have to be a little bit crazy to rock climb for recreation. Who voluntarily submits themselves to such a finger-abusing, joint-aching activity? Yet all it takes is the smallest of rock faces (natural or artificial) and you’re hooked. Take Mission Cliffs Rock Climbing Center, where the various climbing walls with colorful handholds make the locale look like an oversize jungle gym. Mission Cliffs can provide that perfect first challenge or make even the most experienced of climbers huff and puff, and a trained and fully equipped staff is there to address any questions and concerns. While rock climbing is among the more demanding of physical activities, it’s also among the most rewarding; looking straight down and seeing your progress is inspiration enough to spur you on. Work, family, pretensions, love handles, dating problems ... all slide away as you rise above. It’s just you and the wall, baby. And that’s what the sport is all about: the emotional and physical catharsis you undergo. So when life gives you a wall, freakin' climb it.
