    Well I am moving to Denver and my friend got me into Rock Climbing out here in NM...

    My question is how many on here actually rock climb, indoor or outdoor?

    Should RealJock make rock climbing it's own category?

    If anyone knows of any good learning websites or anything please shoot them my way since I am still a beginner!!!

    I rock climb. I've only done it indoors but am going to outdoors this summer.. hopefully.

    I've been climbinb and bouldering for about 2 years so far.. at about a 5.10+ and V2.

    I've found that most guys at the climbing gym are really helpful in giving tips on how to improve. It's kind of like a cool community where even without asking sometime, people will come up and give advice or cheer you on.

    hi, rock climbing is great fun, indoors and out. Its a great mix of muscle strength, endurance, flexibility and cv.

    good websites to try are http://www.indoorclimbing.com/ and http://www.rockfax.com/
    lots of climbing information


    dont get the best of weather in scotland for outdoor climbing all year round but we do get some great ice climbing here over winter.

    Best way to get started in climbing is go along to a local wall of if you know someone who does it get them to show you how. Found climbers to be really friendly and always willing to help out and pass on tips.

    I know this is an old post I'm reviving, but I could use a rock climbing partner in the South Bay (of Los Angeles) if anyone is interested. I have 2 entry punch cards with 3 punches left on each for the Rock Gym in Long Beach that expire on 1/27/10. I'll be out of the country from Dec 15 - Jan 7, but would be happy to go before or after that.

    Just looking for a climbing buddy/friend.

    I have several friends that are avid rock climers.
    I love it, however, I'm strictly an indoor climber... not quite brave enough to venture where my buddies go outdoors.
