With both indoor and outdoor options, rock climbing is exploding in popularity right now — and for good reason. The equipment has improved dramatically over the past couple decades, and kids are now growing up in climbing gyms studying bouldering problems and finessing their smearing capabilities. Additionally, professional climbers can now share their accomplishments instantly on social media, and America Ninja Warrior has been utterly dominated by climbers. I may not like ledges, but I love climbing and would recommend it for everyone to try. Whether you go to a climbing gym or head out with a guide, you’re going to learn something about yourself, and I guarantee you that you’ll end the day with an enormous sense of accomplishment and a smile.
