Life at The Edge

The Capital Region’s state-of-the-art indoor climbing facility is home to more than 14,000 square feet of textured climbing terrain, a massive free-standing boulder with seamless padding, nearly every bouldering section topping out, and a huge selection of top rope and lead routes for climbers of all ages and ability levels to enjoy. As the Capital Region’s premier climbing gym, The Edge is bigger and taller than any other gym within a 100 mile radius, and is the perfect place to get better acquainted with one of the best sports on Earth.

Grandson, Henry spent the night at The Edge with about 50 kids from the Youth Group.  He thought it was a sleep over but the kids were busy the whole night and sleep was not included.  Climbing, games, more games, and community building activities.  I picked him up because the rest of the family are up north  at a volleyball tournament!   Henry would put himself to bed when he was younger, he just needs and loves his sleep!   He was exhausted when I got him.  He had fun but couldln’t wait to hit the hay after  lox, a  bagel ,and juice.  David and I have some fun things to do with him but after he gets some beauty sleep and his enthusiastic energy back!  

Here is a video to show those of you who are interested and have never seen this sport.

        Yeah we kinda idiots here for stupid, deathly things. Like climbing Ben Nevis in short’s and t-shirt and sandles on 😀

        Ben Nevis is the highest mountain in the British Isles. Standing at 1,345 metres above sea level, it is located at the western end of the Grampian Mountains in the Lochaber area of the Scottish Highlands, close to the town of Fort William
