My Monkey Man

I like monkeys. I find them humourous and I love to watch them climbing all over things. So somehow I turned my husband into a Monkey.

When I met my husband he was frightened of heights. So to help him with his fear I brought him to a climbing gym.

He quickly developed a passion for the sport. Now he climbs multi-pitch climbs and talks about doing big walls.

Now no boulder is safe from his desire to climb it. Occasional structures as well. He boulders and free climbs to heights that would certainly make his mother nervous.

He’s very modest, but he’s actually quite good. Not competitive climbing good, but good enough to really enjoy a lot of routes on lead (Lead climbing is when you climb above your last piece of protection so if you fall you double your drop. Usually you want to feel confident enough in your skills that you wont fall at the level you are climbing at).

He even finds his way up trees on occasion.

Cooper has been enjoying hanging out when my husband is climbing around too.

  1. Your little family is too cute. I love the one where Cooper is jumping on the rocks. I love climbing too. I really only climb in the gyms.

  2. That’s great that he enjoys it. I don’t think I would like that…
