Hey, I'm brand new to the forum as of about twenty minutes ago. :P I joined to learn about climbing. My first [safe] climbing experience was a few years back at a Boy Scout camp, and I loved it! Now my hobbies are getting tactically-oriented, and I need to know how to climb well and where to get what kind of gear!

The only climbing I've done lately has been... well, not in a way that anyone here would probably consider at all wise or safe... :P I'm an adrenaline junky...
