Preferred Climbing Gym? Favorite Outdoor Climbing Spot?

I don't know any places in DC, and I don't have a car... right now I'm climbing a lot of trees in Meridian Hill Park. :)

Favorite other sports or outdoor activities?

most of them. Used to be a runner/jumper/thrower, but had a back injury that's thrown me a bit. Play pick up soccer, not so good at stick-and-ball games like baseball/tennis... like camping (but got no gear) and snowboarding (but got no mountains). All good fun.

Have you been Top Roping, Sport Leading, or Traditional Lead climbing ?

not yet-- most of my experience is indoors / scrambling sans ropes

Favorite climb ratings

5.8 is a good climb for me- start with a solid 5.6 or 7 and can go to a 5.10 or so, but 8s and 9s are usually solid.

Age Range :20-27, 28-35, 36-43, 43-50, 50+ ?



Hi, my name is Ariel. I just moved down from Boston after graduating from Wellesley College, where I worked at our rock wall. Point of pride: the only one to reach the newly-defined mile high club (make it up the 26 ft. wall 203 times in a semester.)
