    Climbing Partner And Partner? Double Trouble?

    I have been climbing for a few years now seriously and my hubby much longer. We started out climbing together constantly but have now peeled off with other partners as he tries to coach me and I refuse to listen to him but when I climb with my friends I attentively listen to...

    The Grip

    You start your day early, the dew reflects off the grass. The temperature is a mix of cold and hot. Your rope almost feel's wet from over night. Your body is stiff, but as soon as you touch the rock, you loosen up. Kinks disappear, stiffness is gone, suddenly you are limber...

    Which Is Better - Climbing Or Rappelling?

    Yesterday, a beautiful day in the mid-80s with a breeze that picked up as the day wore on, we went to a popular local climbing area.  To our utter surprise, we had it completely to ourselves for almost 6 hours.  We had three lines set up for top roping on a 100 foot...

    I've only been climbing at a local indoor gym, but I love it. I love the workout, the sweat, the adrenaline, the bruises, the sore muscles, the calories burnt, the flappers, the stares from the guys as you kick their ***** all the way up the wall, all of it. At some point I'd...

    Yosemite

    This place beckons to the climber like a flame to a moth.  I had been before, but it was my first time since becoming a climber.  Rounding the bend to get my first view of the cookie, I had to stop right there for a bit and stand in awe at the sheer scale, as up to that...

    Am I the only person

    who actually likes the feeling of falling when I just miss the next clip in? Yesterday, on the wall I was traversing a double overhang and I was acutely aware that the energy was disappearing out of my core, fore arms and fingers... When my dear little brain kicked in telling...

    A Feeling Like No Other

        There is this 150 ft. rock that I love to climb at least ones a week. When ever I go I do it free climbing and bare foot. Well its December now and the rock is iced up, So you'd think I'd stay away from it. Well I'm not all that bright. I decided to go ...

    Most Exhilarating Experiences!!

    I've been climbing for years. Never the same experience twice! I started climbing after I was hiking in Garden of the Gods one day, I saw some young boys on top of this Rock and I could hear them talking. Was the first time climbing for one of the youngsters, and he was scared...

    Just Started

    Just started today; private training at a city rock gym in Houston. I'm in okay shape ... but I can't feel my hands. Am committing to go this place twice a week; work is prohibiting me from going more than that.

    Cliff Climbing

    Ever since I was a little child, my dad took me rock climbing when we were on holiday. Out of all my friends, I was the only girl who could rock climb. It was the one thing I loved doing the most when we were on holiday and it is still something I still love doing even though I...

    Climbing: It`s Addictive

    I`ve been climbing for about 6 years on and off, and recently got back into it in my new town. I found a partner who is willing to progress with me and we head to the gym only once a week. The gym is an hour away, and in the middle of a bustling city. But with this, I am always...

    Anyone Want To Go Climbing?

    I really like rock climbing but haven't been doing it for very long so I suck. Is there anyone who wouldn't mind having a inexperienced partner? I'm free 24/7.
