Hi, I just start climbing. I need a partner to climb with, maybe on the weekends. I would like to progress to outdoor climbs but I need practice. Unfortunately, all my friends don't get my new love for this. I want to climb at Atlanta Rocks in Atlanta. Any takers?

Indoor climbing does not prepare you for outdoor climbing. Get outside fast, it's more fun anyway.

Yeah, let's not waste any time dragging the newbie into typical RC.com prejudices. Geez.

Indoor climbing may not prepare one for every aspect of outdoor climbing but it's damn good training.

hi,
i'll be in you nieghborhood (sort of, see post above yours) from tomorrow till may. sometimes it's a nice break to climb with a female partner so feel free to get in touch with me if you get sick of the testosterone (always fun, but you get a different vibe climbing with another woman) and we'll climb.

the real motivation behind this is that i have these really fun prana pants that i dyed bright purple and can't stand to wear them out with the 'boys'. ruins the hard a$$ image it takes so long to create. :lol:

About what I'd expect from a sport climber LOL. Pulling plastic is nothing like climbing on rock. Gym climbers are famous for feeling and looking lost the first time they get out on real rock. Thsi is not an RC.com prejudice, it's my prejudice, and it is well founded. But don't take my word for it, ask people who compete both indoors and outdoors what they think.

Johnny, yeah that was me with the red shoes around lost digits for a little bit. Too bad it was so damp that day. I met several people there at lost digits, which one were you?

Yawn. Typical divisive BS. Gotta start populating that killfile.

I've climbed outdoors, before and after a year of gym training. It helped a lot. Not with everything, but with some things.

Ciao pal.

Oh dear killfiled by a canadian sport climber, how will I bear the shame?

No you have not truly climbed out doors, you have sport climbed. That's different. Sport climbing is just gym climbing moved outside for the most part.

Sorry to have an opinoin so different from your own that you can't abide it. I'll bet you can't stand intolerance either. So Now that you've stuck yoru head in the sand, do you feel better?

Aww now you were not supposed to see that! why oh why didn't you go ahead and killfile earlier , before you becase scared for life by that caustic comment? Come on, hit that killfile button, you can do it!

You know, you shouldn't be so sensitive about being a canadian, but I can understand the shame of branding yourself a sport climber LOL.
