    I started indoor climbing a little over a week ago and I'm having fun with it. I can do 5.8s
    You lousy kids! Get off my savannah!

        Just keep climbing! I think the first thing I climbed was a 5.8

          No, I am very uncomfortable with heights. Climbing 50 feet for me was amazing enough.

              Yeah, bouldering is a lot of fun. I'm getting comfortable with heights in top rope climbing, but it does still take some of my concentration away so I take a while to get up there. I like how it's like a puzzle to figure out with your body.

                Just wait 'til you start lead climbing!

                  ^ and THAT is what i meant by "sarcasm." 5.8 in gym = piece of piss. 5.8 in gym lead = a bit more nervy, but still okay. 5.8 outside: HAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAAHAHAA.

                  when i worked in an outdoor store i had some customers come in and start buying a pile of mountaineering gear for a trip to the Alps based on their indoor climbing grades. they'd just started overwinter and were reckoning they were climbing about 5.9 and were all set to go take a big outdoor trip. i mentioned a good training quarry near Glasgow for them to crack onto before they went on their trip. they came back the next day and were like, uhmmmm.... okay we led 5.4. rookie mistake!

                    i wish i could offer more advice... i'm like a 5.7 climber wishing i had the strength:weight ratio to kick ass like you. but pbf is definitely helping!
                    I have read this book already and it is a good read! I realized faults with my climbing that I hadn't thought of before and it has helped.

                        That first site is definitely good. Idk, I usually just go climb, don't worry about training too much. Mountain Project is my home lol

                          CLYMB I assume you come from Scottsdale, Arizona? What sort of climbing do you typically have in the US, is it predominately bolted sport routes or trad' climbing with leader placed protection?

                            "9 Out of 10" just went on my Amazon wishlist. Looks interesting.

                            And I think I'll go check out Mountain Project now, seeing as how Clymb's all about it...

                              You can't climb and not use Mountain Project. You just can't. It's like an unwritten rule, lol.

                                Lol, apparently I haven't been climbing all this time. I will amend my ways!
