Never go barefoot when rock climbing.
Rock climbing shoes exist for a reason. That is to make sure you do not cut your precious feet on razor sharp rocks.
I didn’t want to pay for the full day excursion of deep water soloing firstly because I wasn’t comfortable with my climbing ability (I had only climbed once!) and secondly, because I am VERY scared of jumping off heights.
Chase convinced me to have a go, so barefoot I climbed the rope ladder with slight discomfort and planted myself on the limestone ledge. Almost immediately I scraped the top of my foot on an overhanging bit of rock and it cut my big toe. I didn’t want to risk climbing higher and causing more damage and I was in pain already just from standing on the limestone, so I (nervously) jumped right back in the water.
