Re: Call for Stories

I jacked up my ankle in the gym about a year ago. Tore two ligaments and had three avulsion fractures. After a week of sitting on the couch I said to hell with it and got back to climbing. I campused pretty much everything for about two weeks before I could put weight back on that ankle.

I'm going to go ahead and assume that you will be climbing sport and not trad. If you're looking for a great place to climb that offers plenty ...

Since you're new, I would definitely advise you go out and place your own bolts. Or better yet, forgo bolts and such all together! Free solo and campus all the way, my friend. Success awaits you for sure.

Advice on beginning Trad

So I'm interested in learning how to climb trad routes, mostly just placing protection. I'm not necessarily interested in climbing routes above 5.9 or 5.10, because I can lead a sport climb in that range and I have plenty of fun with those. I just want to learn the basics from someone that has ample...
