Not really. Sport, Trad, Ice, I'm game for all.
The friends I've made through climbing. (If I can't also list the self-reliance, gaining high elevation, the gear, the satisfying feeling after completing a climb and returning to the car with gear clinking on my harness :o) )
I love the rock
Lessons learned: Make sure you have the phone number of the group organizer and an agreed specific meetup location and time(such as parking lot of Royal Columns at 2pm). So even without cell phone service or a gps system, you can still locate the people you organized to climb with. We still got some great climbing in and the group of us that did find each other had a good time. Sunday was much better when we did finally run in with Bruce.
