Maybe you want to give some more info on where you are, and what exactly you want to learn?

Assuming you are from the USA and want to get started sport climbing, it wouldnt be of much help if i recommend you some alpine courses in Austria. Heck, even the USA alone is big enough

Maybe start reading around a bit in those things, so that you know a bit more, than just that you have "time to get into rock climbing":

Anywhere within the united states. I actually found an indoor climbing facility bout an hour away, plan on spending a lot of time there, other than that theres not much climbing in southern jersey. Thanks for the links btw.
