Climbing is brilliant fun. Just a word of advice, try to climb well within your capabilities for a while and don't under-estimate the use of your feet, knees etc in climbing, if you're clever,
you can use your hands arms for steadying yourself
and do a lot of the climbing from your feet and legs.
You don't have to suspend yourself in space with only a finger tip
in contact with the rock face/climbing wall! Take it steady to begin with.
All my kids climband are all pretty good musicians as well. I often get "roped"(!) in to belay
for them and usually end up having a go myself...Golden rule is to keep three points of contact
with the rock face. Enjoy!
