running, hiking, and i'll do almost any outdoor activity i'm invited to do with friends.
i have climbed mostly indoors. but there are a couple outdoor places in the Austin and San Antonio area i like. Reimer's ranch, and Medicine wall
i can do some 5'11's top rope, on lead i'm in the 5'10's and i have never trad climbed. sounds like fun though. I own 2 pairs of shoes, A Petzl Corax harness, 8 quick draws, and a 65m rope. i have only used the rope outdoors 3-4 times though.
Yes, rock climbing is an inherently dangerous sport.
i have been climbing for about a year and regret not doing more of it when i lived in phoenix. I live in San Antonio right now but visit Phoenix semi frequently.
