(sorry, haven’t had enough coffee yet this a.m.)

Cats gotta climb.


#4

Ikkimashita!

Oh great, now my cat is demanding one of those.


#5

行きました! Very cool


#6

a tortie, naturally. : )


#7

Dang! Now I am very inspired to accomplish my own desire!


#8

That cat is better at it than me. Need me one of them tails.

My tortie was climbing trees at this age, but for some reason not a master of climbing down. After several incidents of her calling to me from the rooftop in the middle of the night, I made the decision for her to be an indoor cat.
She lived to be 18, and it really was sad to see her when arthritis set in. I even built her a staircase out of boxes so she could get on the bed.

Get your climb on, Lalah, before you get old!

They installed a climbing wall in our local pool recently. I’d never been on one before, but it’s a lot of fun.

That’s for the deep water soloing brigade:

Really weird when you’re seakayaking in Dorset, then suddenly there’s a dude freeclimbing above the rock arch you’re about to go through…

Oh wow, nice. So it’s a bouldering wall? No top-roping i mean so if you fall off you fall in the pool? They do something similar for the deep water solo competitions (edit: already mentioned above). This one doesn’t look like a very interesting climb though; a bit too easy if you got a modicum of experience.

I think retractable claws have a lot to do with it too.

Any more excuses?
