I graduated from Clemson a year ago. There are some pretty good places around the area (Curahee mtn, table rock, crowder's mtn, and on and on). If you want to get together with some climbers, go to the Fike recreational center and ask the guys that work the desk at the climbing wall. They should be able to point you in the right diretction. Hope this helps!

Still looking for some people to go out with on the weekends. Im down for bouldering, toproping, or seconding if you want to teach me how to do it :) 5.8-5.9 level at the gym though im not sure that translates exactlly to real rock.

I cant this weekend seeing as this is the last weekend for a month that my folks are gonna be in town and family time is a must for them. But Im pretty game after this weekend. I know how to belay in a toprope situation and thats about it as for dynamic or lead belay i know diddly squat except you give more slack and then real it in bigtime if a fall occurs. Thanks for replying though, if you go next weekend let me know.

Did you just get back from a road trip, cause the guys at fike were talking a bout someone going on a climbing road trip but im horrible with names and cant remember. As for Kentucky it sounds intruiging or when you start the year back up at school. Im in SC technically until sept 1st so whenever. Thnx for the reply though :)
