Noobie went rock-climbing

Got a sudden message from Sheryl two weeks ago, "jio-ing" to go for rock-climbing with her friends @ Batu Cave, but not actually the Batu Caves with thousand of stairs, but it's the other side of the cave where there's real limestone rocks to climb, not the stairs with monkeys staring at you. So woke up early morning to catch the earliest bus to Universiti station, then sit all the way to Wangsa Maju Station since i have to be there by 8.30am. Waited for Sheryl's friend, Sam to come pick me up at the station and off for a brunch at a random mamak stall @ Seksyen 2, Wangsa Maju while waiting for the others to arrive.

let's start climbing shall we? For your information, Sam and the rest are rock-climbers expert from
Mad Monkeyz Climbing Gym, they had climbing lesson there, so i get to climb my first ever rock-climbing for free since this is just a friend to friend call out rock climbing, YAY! and they provide a little so-called safety session before the climb too. They provide all the safety gears too, so it's totally safe.

Sunny weather, nice :D

Had a lot of fun with you guys although i have bruises all over my finger and leg. My first ever experience, tiring but FUN!! well i think it's a good start for a noobie like me to go rock-climbing and i think i found my new interest, so yea gonna climb more often if the time allows.
