Usually GWPC, sometimes outdoors, rarely boulders.
First started a year back while still in college, and have been doing it pretty consistently for the past few months. I have been to Bishop a couple times and loved it. I hope to go back there more, and also to discover some new places around here.
It means paying attention to my surroundings, doing all the safety checks and communicating to other climbers about what's going on. It's especially important for group trips, since people are less familiar with each other's climbing styles.
