Monkey business

Yesterday I went to a climbing gym for the first time with two coworkers.  It was a lot of fun, although definitely different from the other sort of climbing I've done in the past.  Today my fingertips and shoulders hurt in a not-unpleasant way.

(the article at this URL changes regularly, so you may have to dig through the archives to find it depending on when you read this).
