Bouldering on Rock Piles (open especially for people that like climbing)

Post  Marita Black on Fri May 16, 2014 6:30 pm

Alex walked through the woods. Alone. She knew that it wasn't particularly smart to be walking the woods alone, but she couldn't help it. Something about the woods drew her. Perhaps it was the mystery that seemed to lurk there, or the idea that a monster could attack at any moment. The chances of a monster attacking her at that particular time of day where slim, the sun was directly above making it the hottest point of the day it would be. Monsters didn't seem to like being in broad daylight, there was less of a chance of them being able to sneak up on her. Still she was wary.
She was approaching a pile of boulders, in the middle of a clearing. Shrugging off her back pack she pulled out some rope. She attached a large hook she had "borrowed" from some of the Ares kids stash. She threw the hook up, it fell off the rocks. On her second attempt she managed to get it hooked between two large boulders near the top of the pile. Giving it multiple hard tugs to see if it would fall, and seeing that it did not, she tied the rope to the harness around her waste. She had also "borrowed" the harness from the climbing wall's extra gear. They seemed to usually have an extra harness in case any of the old ones got singed from the lava.
She climbed up using a couple niches in the stone. It was hard work but she eventually got the the top. She took off the harness and her back pack. Thankfully her back pack was light, allowing her to climb the rocks with ease. She pulled out a bottle of water and an energy bar. Leaning back, looking forward to a nice break in the sunshine she was interrupted by the sound of someone approaching through the trees. It was odd that someone would have come this far into the woods, unless they had plans of climbing the boulder too, or following her.

((Mind if I join? Smile ))
Velika ran through the forest, swerving between trees until she finally came to a small clearing. When she looked in front of her she saw a huge pile of holders in front of her with a camper who looked younger than herself up at the top. She glanced behind her quickly before rushing at the boulders, seeing the rope still hanging there. "Perfect." she thought.

She leapt up, grabbing the rope and pulling herself to the top, kicking and scrambling to make it up quickly. When she got there she stood, hands on her knees, huffing and puffing from loss of breath during her run and climb. She wiped the sweat off her forehead. She was so glad she'd left her jacket in the cabin today. "I'd get everything together if I were you." She pulled out her daggers and got ready to fight and protect if need be. "You know how to fight, right?" she asked Alex, her eyes still on the woods as she heard a strange growling.

((Not at all =D ))
Alex was a bit surprised at how easily the girl had climbed the boulder. "Yeah I can fight," she said nodding to the girl unsheathing both knives with a quick flick of her wrists. She swung them into position stepping back into a stance. The girl was breathing hard, but Alex figured that she would catch it after a few seconds.

Just than a crash came from the woods, from where the other camper had run out from. A tree snapped in half crashing to the ground, Alex cursed as the monster stepped into the clearing. It let forth a large, loud, screeching roar. "What the heck!"
Alex yelled, not taking her eyes off of the monster. "What is that thing?!" She yelled to the other girl. She shoved one of the knives back into the sheath on her leg and grabbed her magic item from the bag at her feet. Thankfully she never forgot to bring it with her to the woods. Pulling the spray paint can out from the pouch she sprayed it into the air, and fire erupted. She hopped that it would give them a second to decide how to fight the monster, fire always seemed to be a good way to distract monsters, it was bright and annoying and after a bit of exposure it burned them. "Any ideas on how to fight this thing?"

(Is it okay if I join along too?)

Clary was doing her normal jog around in the woods, it cleared her head, and her head was cleared until she heard a low growl and a yell of other campers. She took her blue backpack off her shoulders and opened her bag, pulling out her kama daggers, they were longer then regular daggers slightly curved at the end but had a amazing grip that made it easy to slash monsters that attacked or other demigods. Her blue eyes narrowed and her eyebrows squeezed. She walked behind one large tree and looked over at the monsters. She guessed it was pretty tall yet monsters like that have trouble turning when they are chasing something. Clarissa had a plan not very well thought out but hey not just Athena kids come up with plans. She sighed and looked at the monster, when was the right time to make a break for it. She remembered what her mother Jamie said about giant monsters, and also how the one that attacked her at a track race before her first year of camp.
Now it was the beginning of her second year, Clarissa didn't want to let the other demigods get hurt. She took a little pebble and throw it slightly towards Alex, not very hard but enough to get her attention. She glanced around and tried to stay as silent as a mouse.

"I don't know how well your fire is going to do against a fire breather..." Velika's breathing had steadied by now. She narrowed her eyes as she watched the Chimera burst through the trees. "Watch out for the tail." Her grip tightened round her daggers as she surveyed her options, could jump to a tree, there was one close enough to her left. Could wait for it to get close enough for her to mount and kill through the neck. "Oh so many choices." she though before it roared loudly at them. She didn't want to use any power today, she probably wouldn't be able to bring up anything good at the moment anyway from the amount of energy she spent running this deep into the woods because of this monster. This was going to be fun...

The chimera was not a monster that Alex had fought before. She was excited to fight a new monster. "I have a bit of a plan, I can distract it with my fire, I don't think it will be good for much else and you could attack it." She was half yelling to both girls, but pretending that there was only one other girl so that the monster wouldn't attack the camper with the disadvantage of being on the lower ground. Alex really hoped that neither of them would be frustrated with her plan. She noticed that sometimes other campers didn't enjoy to be given commands. "If you have a different plan let me know." she yelped leaping from boulder to boulder trying to draw it's attention to her and not her cabin mate of the forest floor below. Again she was trying to direct her statements towards both girls without alerting the monster that it was out numbered three to one. She sprayed the fire a couple times into the air. It was really just for show, she doubted that it would do all together to much good, that's what her knives were for.
"Hey ugly!" she yelled at it, that was not the smartest of options... it roared at her. "OHHHHHHH--" her curse was cut off by her quick leap off of the rock that loosened under her feet.

Velika simply smirked and went ahead with the plan. She sheathed her knives and ran and leapt for the tree closest to her, hanging onto and pulling her self up to the thick branch. She jumped from tree to tree, getting around behind the beast. Finally, when she though she had a good enough spot, she pulled out her daggers and jumped down, aiming to land on it's back. She only thing she had to worry about one she landed would be the snake tail. She landed right between the lion's and the goat's heads, and since both faced opposite ways, she could easily stay there. She stabbed the goat head in the side of the neck and tore deep through it, and using her dagger sticking into it as a handle, she held on for deal life as the chimera reared back. Hopefully the snake tail would leave her alone. She didn't want to have to go to the infirmary just because of a stupid snake bite.

Alex continued jumping around on the rocks on top of the pile trying to keep it's attention. "HEY UGLY" she yelled at the hideous creature. "Yo MOMMA So fat that when she sat on a Rainbow Skittles popped out!" she doubted that the monster would care about dumb "yo momma" jokes but they were pretty fun to yell. Alex continued to blow fire in the air and throw baseball sized rocks at one of the monsters heads, careful to avoid her fellow camper. The monster spewed fire at the rocks that Alex was on. It burned her legs but Alex was used to burns, she was barely able to feel it. It was probably going to leave a scar but the adrenalin pumping through her was distracting her from any pain, pain would come later. "Missed me! Missed me!" she chanted like an elementary student. The monster was getting angrier and angrier from the attacks on the ground and mad at Alex.
She picked up another rock swung her arm back then launched the rock. It slammed into one of the creatures legs and it roared. Alex misjudged how much momentum she had used and slipped on the rock. She slid down the rock grabbing hold of the rope and swinging along side the edge of the boulders towards the ground. Her back slammed into the a jagged rock right before she landed. That one hurt. A lot. Alex cursed and ran towards the monster. Drawing both knives letting loose a bit of a battle cry, still trying to distract the monster while helping kill it at the same time.
