I've never climbed before but it's something I've always wanted to try. I'm in West Monroe, LA and I realize that there are really no outdoor climbing spots in LA but I'm willing to travel if an experienced climber would like to show me the ropes. Thanks guys

Oh, you poor guy. Teach me to surf in Kansas.

I did 8 years in southern Louisiana and kept climbing but it was a lot of work. My suggestion; read all the books, join a gym and build a wall in your garage or yard. It's two steps; the physical movements and the technical ability. You can learn them both at home but then you need to put it all together at the crag. While in Louisiana I built a monster wall and taught myself to aid climb and honed my trad leading skills. It's possible but not an easy path.

Best of luck,
