A few photos from the basic rock climbing clinic at JBS Kangar.
Participants from Kelab Kembara MRSM Beseri Perlis of about 40 form-5 kiddos took their Satuday off by attending the interesting clinic. The instructors were Encik Din of JBS Kangar, along with few other staffs, assisted by 4 regular climbers.
I was there just to tag along. It was long ago since i hung up my Miura. Surely I missed clipping those runners.

Girls n boys... thanks for the comment.
I love climbing. I always do.
But since my knee injured way back in 1999 forced me to hung my boots (the loosen foot-hold twisted when I was on speed-climb training with some senior climbers). Not able to do the 'twisting' as I use to.
Still, I am encouraging friends and newbies to try it. It is full of fun, when you know how.
p/s: The words on the 'poster' were from a 'No Fear' poster that I bought in 1995. I gave it to a friend-climber as gift of hounour. Sorry folks, my Sportiva Miura is not for sale! So as my BlackDiamond belt! ( I got 2, thanks Syahiid!!!)
