If you’ve been thinking about giving climbing a try, let me be the first to say do it. I started climbing a little less than a year ago, and it’s been incredible. Not only is it a great workout, it’s a huge load of fun.
If that little blurb didn’t convince you to get out there (it probably didn’t), maybe Gordon Robb, AKA Fat Old Climber (he calls himself this! I promise I’m not calling this guy fat and old!), can convince you.
Just from this video, I immediately loved this guy. He’s got an amazing sense of humor, a fantastic Scottish accent (though I’ll admit, I did have to watch the video with subtitles), and so much love for the sport. Hopefully he’s able to show you that you can get out there and climb, even if you’re doubting your own ability or fitness.
Go give this guy some love on Instagram while you’re at it, his account is definitely worth a follow.
