Finally Bouldering!

I finally got some climbing in this weekend! Woohoo!! Last weekend I found the local climbing gym, Movezone, and was able to meet a lot of the people who climb there. This weekend, a couple of kiwi blokes took me out bouldering in a riverbed just outside of town. This place is pretty sweet really, and seems like it has a fair amount of potential for problems. The climbing we did was inside a natural bridge/cave. The picture is pretty crappy, but if you look really close, there's some Chinese letters etched in that boulder behind Darren. I can't remember the name of this place, but apparently some fellows stayed here during the Japanese occupation and left all sorts of writing all over the cave. They wrote in Chinese, since Hangul was not officially adopted and standardized until after WWII.
