This Is Hard To Believe

Rock climbing injuries have increased in the U.S. because of so many indoor climbing gyms. But it’s hard to believe that men would get hurt more than women. Who knew? And young people got hurt more than older people. Who would’ve guessed?

“Men were much more likely than women to get hurt, sustaining 72 percent of all injuries, while climbers of both sexes between 20 and 39 accounted for more than half of the injuries.”

Since I am old and female, how the heck did I get injured? I guess that answer my first thought after it happened" wow, it's amazing this never happened before!" It is because I am so stinkin' CAUTIOUS!
