I've wanted to try rock climbing for a couple years now, but I'm afraid of heights. I went snow-camping with a climber last winter and he convinced me to give it an eventual try. Unfortunately, financial circumstances prevented me from joining this place only 5 blocks from where I live(d).
Now that I'll soon be living among the nouveau riche on the Upper West Side, perhaps I'll have to look into Brooklyn Boulders, assuming my newly employed girlfriend gives me a supplemental allowance that allows for that. Even the non-early app fee isn't too bad per month.
Of course, when the find out I want to build an escalator to the top of the wall and a Starbucks for when I get there, they might kick me out.
