More Info:
At the age of 13, my friend's father introduced me to caving. I really enjoyed it and started spending a lot of time researching and practicing techniques, went out and got all the gear neccessary and spent a few years doing that ...................................................................................................................................................... At about the age of 15, I was tired of using ascenders to get back up the ropes and started getting into climbing. I spent a few years in gyms, starting off at Peaks, then off to Rock Oasis and Gravity. I have never been one to follow the beaten path, so sport climbing wasn't very interesting to me. I started building a rack, and getting familiar with the equipment. I have practiced much technique and worked with gear placement quite a bit. I usually climb sport climbs, using the bolts and placing my own pro as well ...................................................................................................................................................... As I work odd hours, it's always hard for me to find experienced climbers to climb with. So I started an internet group entitled 'Rock Climbing Niagara' located on Facebook and have used that to set up 'Learn to Climb' events at Gravity climbing gym in Hamilton ...................................................................................................................................................... I don't get to spend a lot of time with the local climbing community and as such, I don't have a huge experience level. I am however very educated in techniques and styles. I research and practice skills on a regular basis ...................................................................................................................................................... Most recently, due to the lack of climbing partners who can work with my schedule, I have started researching solo climbing techniques and gear. I have become confident in my skills on lower grade climbs with these techniques and gear and am working towards higher grades ...................................................................................................................................................... I invite anyone to join the Facebook group, 'Rock Climbing Niagara'
