I really want to try indoor rock climbing but I'm such a whimp when it comes to heights, I feel like I would get 2 metres up and start freaking out or something.

Go for it!!!
I'm terrified of heights and that's why i'm going climbing, to overcome the fear. Only been twice, on the smaller walls say 7 metre I feel ok but on the larger walls, 14 metre I get above half way and panic, my palms get sweaty so constantly chalking them. But the satisfaction you get when you reach the top is great and one little step forward to overcoming the fear.

I think this motivated me to finally stop talking about wanting to do it and actually make plans to do something about it!

Seriously you won't regret doing it, and you can do it.
My fear of heights has always been very bad, but this is helping me and seriously it's good fun and very good exercise, your fingers will hurt the first time you do it though.
