A first timers' experience at the James Island climbing wall

We've all done our fair share of climbing in our day - from our toddler adventures up chairs and dressers to our high school fence climbs to evade run-ins with the law. If you've never considered the climbing wall at the James Island County Park, maybe it's time you take on the challenge.

Melissa Bigner tried her hand at the 50-foot, four story behemoth for the first time recently and posted her experience in a fun little article in Charleston Magazine. Coached by a professional climbing instructor, Bigner took on the novice course and lived to tell about it.

The climbing wall at James Island County Park is appropriate for all ages, sizes and weights, so why not make a day of it?

The James Island County Park is located at 861 Riverland Drive.
