Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez are taking their love to new heights…literally! The couple went rock climbing yesterday and we spoke to an instructor and eyewitness who saw them and say they had great communication!

Jusin Bieber and girlfriend Selena Gomez are making sure they are getting plenty of adventure time together — which is exactly what they did when the pair went rock climbing at The Sports Center at Chelsea Piers in New York City June 30. Rock climbing instructor Andres tells HollywoodLife.com, “Justin and Selena took a semi-private lesson which lasted about one hour,” adding that good communication is the key to successful rock climbing. Are Justin and Selena working on their communication skills? If so, what better way then to have fun climbing a rock wall?

“Justin was a pro and very daring,” an eyewitness tells HollywoodLife.com. “His main concern was making sure Selena felt safe and protected. They both had a blast. Even though Justin is on the small side, he is very strong!”

Andres explains, “In the class we teach students how to belay, which means working the ropes and making sure the other person is safe. You have to be a team. We gave them tips on the best way of getting up the wall. For example, trusting your feet more and using your legs to push you up, rather than using your arms to pull you up. Our walls are about 45 feet height, but where Justin and Selena were climbing, the walls are about 35-37 feet high. Some people who are afraid of heights struggle quite a bit. When you get to the top, you let the instructor know and then you slowly push off nice and easy.”

He adds, “To be successful at rock climbing you have to be a very good listener, pay attention to your climber and be willing to push yourself to your limit. It does require a lot of team work. Even before people start rock climbing, they have to learn the rock climbing commands.”

Looks like both Justin and Selena get A+’s on their communication skills…not to mention their rock climbing abilities!
