Never climbed in my life. Well once in grade 7 for a school class trip inside. I used to be afraid of heights, but am going to overcome this because climbing looks incredible, and mad fun. It fits in with my lifestyle, and I have a job now and can afford some of it hopefully! Glad I found this forum, been looking for something like this. Let the journey begin.

Hi everyone. So ive been climbing about 20 times or so, all indoors and top roping so Im definitely still a beginner. I just recently bought some climbing gear (harness, shoes, chalk bag, ATC belay, caribeners) and have been going more often and trying to improve my skills. Im really hoping to get better and get climbing outside sometime this summer. Glad to be part of RC.
