Hey hey.. I was wondering if there was any young chick climbers in here? Not that I don't like reading you guys' post or anything, cause you all are quite funny and are so open minded, it rocks. I'm a 16 year old, even though my parents are still together, I've been raised by my dad.. my mom was never into the outdoors and my dad loves the outdoors,.. we camp,climb,kayak,all that extreme stuff, anything outdoors. Well, for the last year or so I've been in the gym climbing around, I met this really cool 17 yr old chick.. seemed cool at 1st.. I don't know.. I guess she didn't want me stealing her guy friends away.. not sure. or she just didn't like new climbers. Well, I'm just rambling.. I was just wondering if there were any young chick climbers around that I could talk to. BUT i wanna talk to any chick climber, lol.. ok.. well i just made myself sound really retarded, hopefully u will understand.

:wink: It doesn't hurt to get a different perspective every now and then. I'd like to say dealing with the opposite gender gets easier as you get older, but I'm still waiting for that to happen myself. In the meantime, pull up a chair, get comfy, and maybe we'll all learn something.

I . . . just . . . suddenly . . . realized . . . I'm not a young chick anymore. How'd that happen? What the heck? I remember when I was one of those 'maturer than their years' kids that hung out with adults, but looked for someone of the same mentality and age . . .

And now I'm eight years older than you . . . ACK!!!!!!!

There are a couple girls your age who climb at the gym I go to. They are a lot of fun, but I feel so old when I talk to them! I'm having a quarter-life crisis :shock:

:D Yes im a young climber too! Im 17.....!!! I am climbing with older people and I don't see any difference, I like it. I even think that older you are, more relax and in control of your climbing energy you work.

I'll be 17 in a couple of weeks, don't have any climbing partners near my age or any who are girls. All my best friends and climbing partners are in their mid twenties or older and I really don't care. I hate hanging out with teens and find that I have very little in common with any of them. They spend their weekends going to the mall, seeing a movies and going to lame parties while I'm off climbing 7 pitches of trad in Red Rocks. I don't think I'm missing anything.

I rarely feel younger then my friends, I'm a climber and I fit right in with them. Most of the time I have to remind them of my age because they tend to forget.

Once upon a time I had some younger, teen climbing partners, both male and female, but it was always a pain. They would be obnoxious at the crags and would freak out on really shot hikes or when I got on lead. It was too much work to climb with them so I ditched them.

Wow, im really happy to see that im not the only one! Most of people think im strange because im not hanging out with them in bar and in party. They don't understand how I can put 100$ for only one friend (basically a stupid piece of metal for them). Anyway they seems so young for me. Maybe because they never experienced life for real before. Isn't pure life to be 4000feet of the ground only with yourself and your harness. Climbers are my friend, we are a community and I think that it's the same in every country were there's climbing. Im climbing with my boyfriend and the relationship we have because of it is incredible. He know me for real because when your outdoor, you just can't wear a mask on your personnality. That what a think.....

fin (finster)...

i think it's great that you've found something to hook on to (other than 'going to the mall and/or partying') in your teens. i started climbing at age 30, but wished that i would have discovered it at an earlier age (it certainly would've kept me out of 'trouble'!).

if you enjoy climbing, i'd suggest finding partners any way that you can. can you post a message at your local climbing gym, or post a message in the partners section here at rc.com? perhaps you can join a climbing or bouldering team in your area. i think it's so cool that you discovered climbing in your teens... best of luck with it. cheers to great adventures ahead.

I'm not the youngest one.. whoo.. but i feel for those who are younger than me.

Oh i have partners... but they are all over 20 which sometimes is great. My dad is my main guy.. me and him always go out together. I just wish more teens could experience the stuff I do... I wish they could see past the mall/boys/& looks. Well! That's awsome if any of want to chit chat sometime it's cool, just im me! CHEERS

I don't know why more teens don't climb-its fun.

yeah i'm 15. i love climbing, but lately i've not had as much opportunity to climb. i can go with my 13yr old brother sometimes, but half the time he's more happy watching tv then to actually do something. and one of my friends did get into climbing with me, but for various reasons, we havent been real friendly to each other lately. that and there isnt too many places to climb in chicago suburbia.

I know exactly what you mean!! Some of my friends play soccer, and they think that's extreme! "Darn, I got a bit of mud on my leg, I have dirt on my arm.." etc. Grrrr!! It annoys me so much! I'm glad I'm not the only non-typical teen girl out there..all you gals rock!

hey fin,
have you ever considered doing any uscca comps? some of my younger climbing partners (im 20 going on 21) compete and have met other young climbers around the country and around the chicagoland area. im too old to compete in the junior divisions, but im going to try my hand at some abs bouldering comps.

competing could definitely improve your climbing and you get to meet so many people along the way.

the site is www.uscca.org or try www.rockcomps.com for abs stuff.

i hope i helped, sorta kinda

When I was (15-16) I wish I had some older climbing partners. I couldn't drive to the rocks(so all I could climb most of the time was crappy quartz boulders behind my friends house) , I didn't have someone very knowledgable about good rock locations or important information like how to build safe anchors. You might be better off than I was because of your dad but, I would just think as long as you and your partners don't mind the age difference, having older partners might actually be better for you. That is at least my wacky opinion.

I'm 20 (nearly 21). But I think age is irrelevant. I've just started climbing recently, a few months ago, and it has been with people ranging from age 20 to 30+. I completely agree with Oceannus when she says the outdoors doesn't mask your personality. So true! And I think people who are into the outdoors are, on the most part, genuine, fun and really awesome people.
If you enjoy someone's company, spend time with them, regardless of their age!

I'm 18 started climbing almost 3 yr's ago I found a climbing wall near my house and was hooked. I come from a house of all women and i'm realy the only outdoorsy one. (I love everything about the outdoors especialy rocks lol) It took me a while to really know the people at my wall since I live near an awsome cliff so they were always outside which is where i alsways wanted to be, and cause i was the only younger person who climbed in the area most were in there thirties. When I did finnaly find people to take me out my mom would always have to interigate them first, which always made finding a climbing partners hard haha. Plus it's hard to know who to trust all the time I like to be safe and hope to be climbing for a long long time to come. It also took me a while to get up the courage to ask these really really experienced older climbers, i always felt like I would just be a tag along since i can't lead(hope to change that this summer). I just recently went off to college and it's cool cause there are a whole bunch of people who climb here that are my age!! hopefully I will get more climbing partners and go outside all the time (although winter is approaching.) Any way just wanted to let you know your not the only young climber out there. Although I have to say I feel kinda old when I see ages like 15:) am i still considered a young climber chick?? haha

Oh and I just wanted to add I really enjoyed going out with the older experienced and trained climber because they really knew what they were doing and taught me alot of stuff, tecnique how to follow/ remove gear, knots and sooooo much more.

I am 18 years old. I think its pretty safe to say that most of us are used to climbing with guys, but i really enjoy climbing with other girls because they can show me techniques and such that help girls. Guys dont really realize that i cant just pull my self up like they can, but other girls can help me. And it helps when me and the girls can try some other routes while the guys are off trying to kill themselves.

hey, Im 16! Where I live there are hardly any climbers my age (one that started a month ago :D ) so I used to climb with the old experienced ones....mostly my dad!! He taught me everything I need to climb here and I am really grateful! I can say that I am not like the girls over here (shopping,...) and I know what it is like to hear that I am a stranger, just because I am climbing or doing any other sport instead of joining them to the mall. I hardly have any friends therefore :( but I can say that I am self confident enough to live my wonderful life :) and it would be even better if I could get in contact with some of you teens out there (kletterfraz@hotmail.com)

I've been climbing for a few years, but in the last year my guys have been there for me through a whole lot and my girl friends from school know nothing about any of it. I'm so much more comfortable around the guys I climb with than I am around girls my age. I'm 16 and all I hang out with are guys that are all at least 5 years older. But they're more like my big brothers and I like who I am most around them.

Currently 18, but I started when I was around 8 (I even had my birthday party that year at a local gym). I'm looking to get back in after stopping for a couple years. I've missed it, heh.

howdy im 15....id like to say that i climb alot and go to gyms and stuff...but alas that is not so...i've gone climbing about 4-5 times in the past 2 yrs but lack of funds, climbing partners, and a drivers licence play a major role in restricting me from climbing..its a bummber but as soon as i get my licence im gonna head to the "local" climbing gym and maybe get some connections from there...

heh when i was 11 i thought i was to good to climb rocks. it kinda sickens me to look bad at what i was... really prissy and stuff like going to get my nails done once a week, boyfriends, hated going outside. my uncle would offer to take me and i'd be like no, i don't want to go. so finally my uncle convinced me to go to a gym over christmas break and i loved climbing and am really mad at myself for missing three years of it! of course, now that i absolutely love climbing, there is no one to take me as my uncle had to move. gah... grr on him. obtw, i'm 14

Hey if you ever need a girl to talk to i am always open for a chat!!! I grew up in the opposite situation, my mom was into the outdoors and my dad loved computers and inventing things. I primarily started climbing, kayaking and hiking and stuff on my own and it is always great to have other girls to talk to that do the same.

yay my first post, I'm 16 and when I started climbing 2 years ago no one would go with me but after a bit of pleading and whining I've convinced pretty much all my friends to climb with me at one point or another and I've found that it's the girls who keep coming again and again. my regular climbing partner is 19 but I go with other 16 year olds a bunch, so my advice to you is to bribe, cheat, lie, black mail or whatever you have to do to get a friend to go with you once and you'll probably get them hooked rockclimbings pretty adictive
good luck!

Hey- I'm a 15 year old girl, and I've been climbing for about a year (send V3/V4, with the occasional V5). I don't really have many girl friends that climb, and so I climb mostly with the guys. Yeah, it's fun climbing with the guys and all (they motivate me to climb harder), but with only one girl friend who climbs, it gets a little boring...

I am a guy and I mostly climb with teengagers aobut my age (16.) There are two "climber chicks" in my schools outdoor skills program (15 and 18)and they are some of the chllest people I have ever meet. It's too bad I can't climb with them more often.

Hey folks, I'm glad you're hooking up with each other, and I encourage you to do so. Just want to remind you that not everyone on the Internet who says they're a teenager is actually a teenager. Be safe and smart about hooking up ... go in groups, all that good stuff.

We don't want to see anybody caught off-guard with a perv at their doorstep. If any weirdos approach you, let me or any of the forum mods know.

Back to your regularly-scheduled programming....

k.

I . . . just . . . suddenly . . . realized . . . I'm not a young chick anymore. How'd that happen? What the heck? I remember when I was one of those 'maturer than their years' kids that hung out with adults, but looked for someone of the same mentality and age . . .

And now I'm eight years older than you . . . ACK!!!!!!!



OMG i just came to that exact same realization.. im only 4 years older, but all the same... its weird to adapt! *yikes*

i'm 14... aparently very young....been climbing for about 3 years. I started climbing with a few people in their 20's and then met some others that are closer to my age, so the ones that are my age are my gym partners and when i go outdoors, its with the older ones (i obviously cant drive yet which is the main reason... that and lack of gear) it doesnt happen too often tho, school being one of the main reasons. i find that really i can climb with anyone as long as they know im not just there to waste their time. like most, i dont see the excitement of going shopping or to a movie on the weekend, i'd rather be climbing or biking or something. I think i would rather climb with someone older than me, but at times its a bit hard when they forget about my age or they invite me to go somewhere with them and my parents won't let me go because im not 18 yet... it doesnt really matter to me who i climb with though, as long as they know what they're doing.

Yep, 17! I don't find the age thing bothers me most of the time. I quite enjoy chilling with the older peeps anyways! That said it's nice to climb with people your own age as well sometimes. There's not very many young people in my area into climbing, especially girls.

17 year old climber chick here. There aren't any female climbers my age who climb in my area, but I don't mind climbing with slightly older people. A few years here or there doesn't really change people.

Just FYI, you may or may not realize that you're responding to an eight year old thread. A 19 year old in the original thread is now 27, and probably long gone from rc.com.

You may want to consider looking at the date of a post before resurrecting it.

Cheers,
