I go by Alex, or Hey You my French Asian Brother. I'm an AO with SCAB and an ex-AO with PRC. I enjoy meeting new climbers and sharing my passion for rock climbing. Life is good when I'm climbing up a cliff or hanging out with my little Elise.
4.5 years and I'm still alive. I have plenty of sport gear (ropes, draws, webbing) and my beloved crash pad.
I love climbing whether it's indoor or outdoor. TR indoor: I'm starting to project 12a/b. Breaking into the 12's is a big milestone for me. I lead a grade below my TR. Outdoors my lack of intestinal fortitude keeps me on 5.10 sport leads and the occasional 11 lead. I have no shame in working from bolt to bolt. I don't lead trad, but can follow. I do enjoy bouldering. Right now I work on V3-V4's at Climbmax. I do one rope session on Tuesdays and one bouldering session on Thursdays, and try to be out climbing every weekend.
Yes, this is just a meetup for meeting other climbers.
Yes, I have almost peed my pants on a few occasions.
Yes, but I would also add that I have the utmost concern for my climbing partners' safety as well.
Hi, I'm delayed... but thank you for the message! Surprisingly, my arms were not too bad the next day. ;) I will definitely be out again, maybe about once/month. Take care!
Thanks so much! I had a blast - so very thankful for your help and not letting me quit. A little bummed I gave up so quick but you showed me how much further I SHOULD push myself. Thanks too for your patience and sharing your knowledge with us newbies! ;-)
Will definitely be back!
Alex, thanks for the showing me the ropes on my first climb and for bringing delicious food. I had a great time. I look forward to attending another outdoor climb with you!
Hey Alexandre, thanks for the post! I'm mainly an indoor climber and its great that I'm able to connect with other climbers in the area and have specific activities aside for indoor meetups! Thanks for the clarification as well! See you soon!
Hello Alexandre, I am new to this meetup group and would like to join you all for the Red Rocks climbing trip. I am already visiting my Mom in Vegas and have my harness and shoes with me. I just need to know when and where to meet this group of climbers! ~ Jamie Creedon
Thank you for the great information. I will make sure and RSVP for an upcoming event.
