Hola - got introduced to this group by my co-worker who is a member. Just moved out to the bay area and I want to connect with climbers. Looking to boulder, sport climb, trad climb, and meet fun folks. Cheers! Carlos
Dig bouldering, sport climbing, and trad climbing. Not so much into ice climbing or aid climbing. Love to get my climb out checking out real rock and having fun with other safe climbers :)
Starting climbing a bunch in late 2005. Have been on and off climbing since then. 2011-2012 was climbing a lot less b/c of work travel. Sport: 5.11 Trad: 5.7 Boulder: V4 (but need to work back up to this) Love all kinds of climbing - really depends on the rock and the climb
Safe climbing means being aware. Awareness of... * weather * rock quality * your own abilities * abilities of your climbing partners * being honest with yourself & your intentions * the extent of your own knowledge * when you are over your head *** Safe climbing means being humble, honest, and forever learning. *** Safe climbing means you stand up and call BS when climbing is clearly NOT safe. This is probably the hardest part of safe climbing, and requires the right balance of respect and firmness.
