“Stepping out of your comfort zone” has a huge benefit and increases brain function when shifting focus from using one sense to another. Us humans often tend to be fixated on certain ways of doing certain things. Adopting such habits let us forget about different approaches that may offer a better and more valuable solution to a problem. The same can be applied to night climbing where the element of light is taken away to a high percentage. Many climbers report to be more focused because of paying more attention to “how things feel” compared to just visually looking for a foot and handhold. The “bubble effect” is another phenomena that night climbers report. A situation where the light of a headlamp creates a bubble around the climber, letting her forget about the epic exposure and other environmental factors around.
No experience required! The park’s many rock faces offer a variety of difficulty levels great for beginner to advanced climbers. Bring an adventurous spirit for a new experience… even if this is your first rock climb in your life.
