You’d both be happy to know I’m a proud owner of rock climbing shoes and harness! Luckily they had the women’s version of evolv defy (elektra) on sale at REI and with a 20% & dividend, I paid $87 total! I went up with a yoga mat knowing that it was pricy aka the mat would’ve equated to the entire rock purchase. I said no to the mat and the cashier told me to just do
yoga climbing. I laughed but the idea is pretty valid!
