Climbing in Tbilisi and loosing the skin from my hands (September 2023)

After Serpentine had left, Racki and I went to the climbing area in the Botanical Gardens of Tbilisi.

The routes there were pretty much used and  interesting: most of them were top rope routes and instead of anchors to put your rope around, they have big metal pipes which are around twenty meters above the routes. So you have to walk up with your rope, throw it around the pipe and walk down again.

We did some climbing there, but it was not our favorite climbing crag but I used my super awesome new climbing shoes for the first time.

A friend of Cindy had given them to me for free and Serpentine had brought them from Germany. They were tied but awesome!

And my hands transformed into real climbing hands by losing all their upper skin layer. Or it was just my alien dinosaur skin renewing itself.
