Here are some pics of me rock climbing in California and Yosemite National Park. I think it was one of the most beautiful places I have ever been. I never saw so many waterfalls in one place.

There was 5 of us climbing together and we were on the face of the cliff for about 5-6 hours. This was my first climb ever and it was awesome. A buddy of mine climbs all the time and asked if I wanted to go and of course I said absolutely. I would love to do it again. It was a great experience.

At the first belay station. With 5 people it takes time to move and there is not much room.

Excellent photos! Looks like a really great climb! I cannot let my wife see these pictures... she would want to get back into climbing and drag me with.

I went on a climbing wall once and its so much freaking harder than I thought it would be. I did the most difficult one which probably wasnt smart my first time but it was a great workout.
