Does your girl/boyfriend/wife/etc. climb? Wednesday, 27 October 2010 At 10:58:03 PM will5686
My boyfriend introduced me to climbing not all that long ago. To be honest all of the stuff I have climbed and felt really proud about climbing, were the climbs when I would have quit if I had a belayer who did what I asked, but instead he tells me to stop being a wimp and to give it a go. Sometimes, like now when I am just learning to trust my gear placements, it makes me want to just get to the bottom of the climb so I can cry and kill him all at once. But most of the time it is awesome, he really believes I can do most things, and so generally I can!

I get a bit freaked out belaying him sometimes as well, he takes risks I wouldn't take. Then again, I am probably the least risk-taking sort of person in the world, to a degree :)

I hadn't climbed before I met him, but I know most of his previous girlfriends also climbed. He stopped for a long time because he didn't have a belayer, now we are together he has started again. I am pretty sure that any future boyfriend I have would have to climb, because none of my friends seem to be interested in coming climbing with me!
