Climbing is a sport I discovered not a long time ago, and to which I feel very connected.
My first time climbing was in a wall in "Cacheuta Sur", Mendoza. The landscape was outstanding, and we spent the day together with a group, sharing and enjoying the mountains. It was this day when I found the beauty behind climbing.
When trekking the route up, a direct connection to the present, nature, and the landscape was taking place. Thoughts seemed to bother and even dangerous in moments where you need to be aware of everything at the same time, where to put your foot, take care of the person is in front and behind you, and so on.
We climbed four sections of a wall, performing top rope, and the main goal was to just enjoying climbing.
Rock climbing is a physically and mentally demanding sport, one that often tests a climber's strength, endurance, agility, and balance along with mental control.
Bouldering is a form of free climbing that is performed on small rock formations or artificial rock walls without the use of ropes or harnesses. While bouldering can be done without any equipment, most climbers use climbing shoes to help secure footholds, chalk to keep their hands dry and to provide a firmer grip, and bouldering mats to prevent injuries from falls.
