Once upon a time back in September 2005, I was walking with my dear wife at UPM’s convocation fiesta when we came across a wall climbing set. Never did I climb any walls. And with a small fee of RM2.00 (if I’m not mistaken), I get the chance to climb up this wall. They gave me two tries, at which I succeeded to reach the top on the first try, but did not even make it halfway up on my second try as my arms were already ‘pumped’ (wall climbers should know this lingo).
With zero experience, zero training, zero knowledge, and without proper equipments (no safety helmet, no shoes – highly not recommended), I began the climb… for the sake of fun, and for the sake of getting the experience.
It was a joyful fun. I just love outdoor activities.
Only after the climb that I know we should use more leg muscles during the climb, rather than the arms’.
