Climbing thread (for people who don't do consider themselves to have "climbing" as a hobby)

Growing up there was a tree at the bottom of the road which was very easy to climb. I climbed it a lot.

As an adult? Not so much.

Climbed up a tree a little bit a few months ago. Enjoyed it.

I will allow parkour for people who don’t know anything about parkour other than the word parkour and that scene from The Office

Stood on a chair to put some bedsheets away into a high cupboard last night.

I stood on an office chair recently to change a lightbulb

Who, over the age of 8, would list “climbing” as a hobby?

mutes thread * burns laptop*

Last weekend, our smoke alarm in the study went off for no reason in the middle of the night.

Deliriously I tried to work out where the noise was coming from, then when I did, climbed up onto my office chair to take the battery out.

Afterwards I was thinking “that was really dangerous, that chair is on wheels and spins around. I was half asleep. I could have died.”

I think there are quite a lot actually, some of them post on these boards

Oh really? I didn’t realise, in that case I retract that statement.
