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.

hey! I'm 16!! Not that many teenagers in my area that climb... personally I like climbing other 16-18 year olds, but most of the people I climb with are 20+!

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.

In three weeks I'll be celebrating my 14th birthday anniversary! :wink: Still feel 14 for the most part except for my back pain and paying bills both which suck. Don't waste your youth, your schooling, or your family. Cherish them all. You won't have them forever. Have fun. Be safe. Cheers.

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.

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!
