How do you Get Your Climb On?

Bouldering in the gym or in the East Bay / Sac area. Some gym top roping.

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

I first climbed at City Rock in Emeryville. My current level is low-intermediate for bouldering (at my best I could tackle some V4s in the gym) and 5.10b/c in the gym. Cleaned a few trad routes with a friend at Lovers Leap but that's the only roped outdoor climbing I've done so far.

What does Safe climbing mean to you?

It means learning and applying the techniques developed by the climbing community and helping others to do the same. It means taking personal responsibility for your own and your partners' safety - and seeing that responsibility through. It means staying alert to potential problems or mistakes and preventing them. Putting ego aside and taking a schooling sometimes.

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.

Yes

Introduction

I'm looking to get more outdoor climbing experience and meet some fun people.
