mostly i wanna do sport, i dont have the quickdraws yet but basicly everything else. thing is i havent done lead climbing yet, even in the gym.. im basicly im transition from gym to rock.. bouldering for me sux still cause i havent built up that forearm strength yet. i boulder every now and then at the gym i goto but not often. i know im a noob,, hmm does that make me a virgin climber? lol
now the good news :D
i climb about 5.10 maybe a low 5.11 in the gym. i am very passionate about climbing and always as safe as i know how to be.
but yeah if ya still wanna go climbing im always up for it hit me up and we'll work out the details..

hehe, i suppose that DOES make you a virgin, which might have just saved your life. Lucky you. Can't be giving the rock gods virgins, fast way to end up on the injured list. As for leading, that part comes with time, tis no worries. Indoor ratings and outdoor ratings are quite different, I find that sometimes tis a bit difficult to transfer the indoor rating to outdoor. I'd totally be down for a pit run, this weekend, if you are interested. I can totally lead it up for ya. Or we could go down to the Overlook, which is trad, but has some more moderate routes there, if you feel like breaking in kinda slowly. I take my wife down there, and she doesn't really climb much at all. She does quite well considering that she's been out 5-6 times. tis up to you. hit me a pm with your phone number in it and we'll work somethign out.

-Will

Hey guys/gals i just moved to the sierra vista area and am currently rehabbing a wrist injury. I came here by myself and haven't met any other climbers yet. My question is if anyone would be willing to meet up in a couple weeks when i'm strong enough to partner up and show me some stuff in the area (cochise, tucson, anywhere), I have about two years experience and some trad gear. PM me and let me know.

thanks all

zack

Hello everyone,
just wondering if there are more slackers like myself out there who have off from work/school on monday(16th) and would be interested in spending the day climbing. I'm located in the Flagstaff area and don't mind traveling up to an hour away. This leaves many possiblites ( sedona, forks, overlook, granite mtn, winslow wall, jacks, you get the point) Anyways, pm me or email me if you think this could work.
Take care-
-Jason

AT hairpin the monsoon season shifted a ton of rock around and in the process may have opened up a new boulding spot. Nothing really exciting but i noticed it on my way out and decided to have a go at it. A couple of easy fun problems. I may guess it may have already been discovered but i didnt see any chalk on it. So I wont add it to the new route list for it has no name. I will try and take some more pictures of its location tomorrow so others can let me know if it has been used. Or if its worth adding as a spot to boulder.

Anyone up for getting out this friday 27th? Can travel up to 1.5 hours from Flag, and up for pretty much any type of climbing. Top rope soloing is starting to lose its appeal, so if you'd like to squeeze out of work and join me, don't hesitate to drop a line -

I'm looking for someone who wants to climb Granite Mountain on Saturday October 28. I'm looking to do a 5.8 or 5.9 at Swamp Slabs. I have all the gear and will gladly lead all day. I just need someone to second it. I'm coming into Phoenix from central CA on Friday for the weekend and will gladly drive to Prescott. Anyone?

I was wondering if anyone had suggestions of some good multi pitch sport climbs around Phoenix (within an hour). I am leading 5.7 area and really don't have much trad gear so I'm finding my choices are kinda limited. Alot of the routes that I'm seeing only have a couple of bolts and so I'm assuming that others are supplementing with trad pro or are you guys really only clipping a couple times? I'm fairly new to the area and spent the summer climbing in N. AZ so this is new territory for me.

Holy crap, there are a lot of single climbers out there looking for partners! Well, let me throw my hat into the ring and see who's willing to play:

Short version: I'll be free to climb from around 11/10 - 11/12. Will be staying in the Phoenix area, but will have a rental car, and can drive wherever.

About me: Climbing about eight years. Comfortable leading to ~ 5.10- trad (up to 5.11 if they're splitters), 5.11+ sport, V4 bouldering, and easy aid. Done some harder stuff, but what's listed up there is what I feel I can realistically do pretty consistently.

Please PM me if you're interested. I'd even be happy to play any role from thankful noob for a stronger climber, to rope-gun for a less experienced climber... or anything in between. No big ego, but I'm reasonably strong, very competent, and just want to get out and climb!

Check out my profile or PM me if you have any other questions.

Oh, and the first drink's on me!

Gabe

What did I say, GO?

FLAGSTAFF.

I mean, bouldering at Oak Flat with Curt is its own Very Special Experience (and I recommend it if you can't leave the Valley) but we have us some sweet columnar basalt (and reasonable Mexican food) that's really worth the drive.

You know you want to.

And I'll take your photo! You don't have a big ego but I can fix that 8-)

(hint: come up on Sunday- maybe use Saturday to boulder with Curt)

My wife and I (30s) are newbies in the Mesa area looking for others to sport climb with. Definitely flake-free: I get enough of that in the music world!. We have rope, harnesses, etc. - no quickdraws yet but working on growing the gear rack. Our schedule is pretty flexible so many weekdays (and weekends, of course) work out well. Also, we're big into trail ATVing (considerately!!!!), so 4wd approaches would be especially fun for us.

Live music, food, and dyno & slackline comps.

Should be a good time, and you can come for all, or any portion of the weekend.
Questions should be directed to either Amylee: athornhill@prescott.edu or Conner Eldridge: celderidge@prescott.edu (530) 848-8463

Or you can pm me to see if I have any clue as to what's going on... (not likely)

Outdoor stuff like the clinics, crag day, and climbing at Promised lands I beleive are free, but the ABS comp and other stuff held at the YMCA I think will have a small fee. (mostly to pay for food and/or facilities.)
Connor would know for sure, and so would Amylee.

The Y had a fund raiser a few weeks ago to raise money for this event, so I beleive that most of the stuff is gonna be free, or donation. Y'all should com'on down, y'hear!?

Queen Creek (east of town) seems to be a favorite, but there's climbing closer to town as well. Camelback is very centrally located, as is Lookout Mtn. There's actually quite a bit in addtion to those.

Phoenix Rock Gym is pretty well known in the region:

My wife and I are going to be taking their lead climbing class around the time you'll be out here, so maybe we can meet up...

I would check out Queen Creek. Lots of bouldering and good sport routes. REI (in Tempe) sells some little paper guides to this area for a couple of bucks.
