Rock Climbing trip with Omeida

Last Friday over a few beers at the Black Rock cafe and bar some students decided it would be a good idea to go rock climbing. We spoke to the owner and planned to climb that Sunday. The group was Simon(Denmark), Katrin(Germany) and Francis(Switzerland). Katrin had previously climbed and was excited to get out. The others also wanted to try out climbing. Unfortunately on the morning of our climbing adventure Simon fell ill. Luckily Chinese teacher Wency decided to join. So we got some snacks and water and headed to Swiss Cheese crag.

When we got to Swiss Cheese the weather was gorgeous. Everyone warmed up while Aaron and the guys from Black Rock climbing put up the ropes for the group. The first two routes where no match for the guys and they climbed up like monkeys. The next two routes were more difficult. Noone could get past a part that had a small tunnel, Francis decided to keep at it and got it on his third attempt which is awesome for a first time climber. Wency went at it very hard and was very brave! She even took a few falls and swung on the rope. On her last try she defeated the tunnel but couldn’t find a way out of the top of it. Well done Wency!

After this route the guys were pretty tired but it did not stop them from trying an even harder climb. This one was to the left of the previous one and was a lot higher. But the guys did there best nobody topped it. Next time we promised we would get to the top
