Default climbing thread

we've had enough scattered posts about climbing, now howabout a thread devoted to it? us climbers need to keep these thread on topic!

to start the discussion:

now what workouts should i do to help get into shape for climbing? i realize that climbing is the best training/workout for climbing but i can't always get to the crag..

Go to the gym and climb then.

Climbing is definitely about repetition and getting out there. Like right now, I could probably lead a 5.8 trad route and 10d sport route cleanly. Give me a month to 6 weeks of getting out 3-4 times a week, including some gym time. You can bump those numbers to 10c/d trad, 11d-12a sport.

well the problem is that the gym is farther than the crag, and both my climbing partners are in school (me being homeschooled i have lots of time to daydream and wish my friends werent in school)

i have a couple boulder problems to work on literally in my back yard, and i have a 50 foot high sandstone cliff in front of my house but its VERY unstable.. and even if it was good to climb on i'd still need a belayer.

Well that sucks. Do you have a space to build your own bouldering wall? My buddy built one in his garage, and I quit going to the pay gym because of it. It does the job nicely. Of course it costs money to build such a thing. A fair amount of money...

The peak in the background behind the granite outcrop is Pikes Peak. I love that place. That crag is the top of the "Crag Ranch". There is a wonderful climb that tops out on that prominate shield you can see on it. It's about a 250-300ft route. Very fun.
