How do you Get Your Climb On?

Rock climbing (trad and sport), mountaineering, canyoneering, scrambling, backcountry skiing, front-country skiing.

When did you first begin climbing? What is your level? What is your favorite type of climbing? Best place you ever climbed?

I first tried climbing at summer camp in middle school (late 80's). I'm a 5.9 trad leader and a 5.10ab sport leader. I know how to use ice axe and crampons and how to self-arrest.

What does Safe climbing mean to you?

Know your ability and be able to judge the difficulty and danger of a situation. Know your gear and how to use it before attempting anything near your limit or far from rescue. Always wear helmets on vertical climbs.

By joining GYCO this confirms you accept & assume all responsibility & risks that could occur in climbing that you voluntarily release, forever discharge & agree to not hold harmless GYCO or any of its Organizers from any & all claims while in GYCO.
