New Mexico Rock Climbing

Matt and Merida visited us for a couple days just before Christmas. They somehow convinced Krystle it would be all right if we went out for some sport climbing, so we did. A friend who has climbed extensively in our area gave us guidance, and we headed to the Socorro Box. The site is in the rugged and beautiful flat-lands of North-Central New Mexico.

Matt generally climbed first, with Merida catching. Any walls that I could consider posed little difficulty for either of them.

Allowing for my lack of experience and sedentary lifestyle physique, I didn't do too badly and had a lot of fun.

You get to be intimately familiar with your climbing partner's backside.

Despite an arm injury, Merida put in some nice climbs as well.
