Hi Mitch,

Yeah, I had the same problem when trying to learn
aid and bigwalls. I started rope soloing, but if you plan
on doing this be very careful, there's a lot that can
go wrong when by yourself.

I would try and find a partner with similar intrests
and go aid up an unpopular 5.11-5.12 crack.

If you've been trad climbing for several years, aid
climbing will not be that hard to figure out. There's
a few tricks and techniques involved, but you can find
a lot of info online about how to deal with most of
the tricks.

Anyway, you need to just get out there and try
different things. Be calm. Take your time and look at
your gear very good while placing it. Make sure you're
NOT looking at it when testing. If it blows.... it
hurts when hitting you in the face.

Feel free to ask specific questions. I don't have a
lot of time right now..... so, gotto go.

Cheers, Ammon

punter. :P

Yeah, I was going to PM you to see what kind of error you were getting since I'm not aware of any general unresolved coding issue that would hose PMs. Good to see you worked it out and discovered the problem was the loose nut behind the keyboard.

FYI -- I edited the title of your post.

you mean that's not normal?? 'doh!

crackboy, i think your dilemma is a common one. i'm also interested in moving into aid, but the more experienced aid climbers that i know generally have their own goals that exceed my abilities so i'm just cragging as much as i can and asking around to see if i can find other people interested in getting into aid. i'm also reading as much as i can.

and this piece of advice is a beauty: Make sure you're NOT looking at it when testing. If it blows.... it hurts when hitting you in the face. i've popped myself in the mouth and nose on two separate occassions and climbing with blood pouring out of your nose is no fun - not to mention that the blood makes your hands slippery, ick.

Haa haa haa, very funny. I will find out who played this practical joke.

Some of you have WAY too much time to waste.

Cheers, Ammon

I hate showing up late and not knowing what the "joke" was.
