How do you Get Your Climb On?

I'm usually at Planet Granite, but I have bouldered at Kraft Rock briefly.

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

I first began in high school, but became more serious in June 2011. Took a break from November to January because of an injury. Currently I top-rope indoors 5.10 a-d and boulder v0s to v3s, depending on the gym route setters and style (slab vs. overhang). I like both styles of climbing actually. Last week I went bouldering in Kraft boulders and that was cool.

What does Safe climbing mean to you?

Doing your proper safety checks prior to the actual climbing, adequate climbing skills, and climbing etiquette (i.e. don't be an idiot and stand right under someone bouldering a route. You don't have to).

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.

Introduction

Hi all, been mostly climbing indoors for a year, but been trying to go outside more often. I'm interested in improving my skills, adjusting from indoors to outdoor climbing/bouldering,­ and learning how to set up top roping routes.

What Melanie is saying about this Meetup Group

Definitely glad I got to go; enjoyed all of the people there and it was a pleasant first experience with this group. Hope to come out again soon.
