Got myself a holiday present today: climbing gear! I now have my very own climbing shoes, and harness, and chalk bag. And it turns out that Planet Granite sells a nicely discounted beginner's package of those three items, so the whole lot cost me about what I expected to pay for the shoes.
Choosing the chalk bag was the hardest part. It came down to a choice between one with pink skulls and crossbones on it and one that was blue paisley. I chose the blue paisley.
