Trad climbing at a young age is a thing many young climbers are afraid to do. Althought I am not. I am a 13 year old climber from Oregon. I can climb 5.13 trad and it does not scare me a bit. In truth, trad climbing feels safer than sport climbing to me, because if you feel you are about to fall, you can throw in some gear, and continue climbing. While if you were sport climbing and you wqere struggling, you couldn't get any protection in until you reached the next bolt. Trad climbing is also a better thing for young climbers to do because it is less stress to their body. Trad is also better because it is less harm to the rock, where as placing bolts is ruining the rock.

I don't buy any of it..... You should really update your profile to a better pic than an arse shot of you on some 5.easy sport route.

Too good of grammar and spelling. Not perfect but I've never seen a kid post here whose writing was even understandable.

I'd give 10 to 1 odds that this kid doesn't exist.

I see in your avatar pic you are wearing 5.10s.
Just remember, the shoes make you climb better just like a good sneaker makes you capable of dunking the basketball.Tongue
.....and your question is.....???? Or did I just miss something?

You've obviously never been on anything but a G rated route. Go to tuolumne and tell me that the old school 5.9 - 5.11 routes feel easy and safe. Ever heard of the Bachar - Yerian?

So you're for Oregon, well so am I. I consider myself somewhat in the "know", and I haven't heard of you. Maybe you're one of those selfless hardmen, but I highly doubt that considering your post. I'm also quite familiar with most of the hard lines in Oregon and the 12+ 13 gear routes are anything but secure and the gear is shit.

I'll take this at face value.

Good for you, I started on trad too... that's all there was when I was 13.

Look at Mythos/Testarosa's

When (and how) did Ruby's get to be a sport climb?

Wolfie,
It sounds like you are learning a great deal in your studies, and that you are having some great climbing experiences. All you have left to learn is how to be a little more modest. I advise that you learn a thing or two from seasone rc.com hardmen/net gods and learn to do things like subtly drop the name of a super hard route or highlight your achievements.

Try something like this:
"I wanted to try out the new katanas that sportiva gave me, so decided to take a few runs up Ruby's. The shoes worked well, but hard factory rubber probably wouldn't have worked as well as my Kaulkulators did on my onsight of the Northwest Face of Half Dome."

Also, make sure that you to every hard route you do as soft, it makes you look like a badass who is still keeping it real. To maintain an image as a down to earth badass DO NOT start an 8a.nu scorecard, but make sure that all the right people are watching when you climb, and that pictures of your ripped back somehow manage to get posted all over the internet.

Hey Wolfie, let's meet up sometime. There's a lot of great routes in the Portland area which might be right up your alley. There are still a few hard gear climbs waiting for FA which i can point out to you.
