Well, klynn and I have been trying to get to* Aiguille Rock Climbing Center in Longwood for a couple of months now. We actually visited earlier this year during one of their big competitions, but there were far too many people there–and really good rock climbers (read: intimidation)–for us to attempt climbing that day!
The Center is quite impressive, and much larger than I was expecting. There are about 10-12 walls, all with diverse levels of difficulty. And I’m not gonna lie: rock climbing is way more exhaustive than I would have ever thought. There takes an immense amount of upper-body strength (which I thought I have), and after climbing a few times I was worn out!
Here are some photos of the center:
The Central Florida rock climbing center is about 15 minutes from Orlando, and open late during the week so it’s convenient for all visitors. One word of warning: the rock climbing center smells of sweat and feet! Certainly not a surprise given all the physical activity going on, but just wanted to give you a heads up!
