prepare for a climbing trip

Post by aaneetha » Tue Aug 06, 2013 12:48 pm

How can I prepare for a climbing trip? I'm going rock climbing for the first time in April. I know it's good to have finger strength, but what are some other ways I should prepare, excercises that would be helpful, etc? I want to be as ready as I can for this trip!
