I used to be in the army cadets when I was at school and one of the regular activities was rock climbing (we called it rapelling). I really did enjoy it. I know of several ostomates who do it on a regular basis, as well as crawling through caves, mountain biking, parachuting, kayakking, scuba diving, etc.
Your ostomy won't stop you from doing anything you want to do - only your mind will!
I have had an ileostomy for 32 years now due to UC.

I'm not a complete idiot - some parts of me are missing!
