no such thing as an "easy" 11a....real climbers start at 11a, hence the grades get tough.

pigsteak didnt you just say in a couple of threads ago that your not a climber untill you climb 12a...so how can real climbers start at 11a if your not even a climber until 12a? seems counter intuitive...anyways ive climbed up to 11 d...but my elbow has been killing me for some time and dont want to over work it when i go out this weekend hence wanting to get onto some easy 11's

How about good ones instead of easy ones?

You could go to Eastern Sky Bridge and do King Me and Super Dario. You could take the Sore Heel tour and do Amarillo Sunset, Random Precision and one of the plethora at Shady Grove. The couple out at Purgatory are fun too.

umm, even real climbers have to warm up sometimes. Hence, they start at 11a

I thought that climbing started at 12a and hard climbing a 8a? Andrew, did you and the 8a crew get this all down on paper back in 2007?

Up to 12a is just practice.

King Me is awesome, Super Dario has about a thousand yellow jacket nests at it's base and they're not very nice. South Side of the Sky is only a few hundred feet from the car and stays dry, and there's another ok 11 just to the right of it. I recommend using the online guidebook...

How about leaving the dog at home! That way you’re not restricted to where you can climb plus you’re not inconveniencing others plus you’re not being selfish.

does the dog have any thing to do with what i asked about on this thread? exactly...no... if you want to start a thread about dogs your more than welcome but keep your smart ass comments to your self and stop inconveneniencing me...plus theres nothing any where about bringing a dog any where in the gorge except for muir...so i respect that and dont go

Well, if you like vert/tech climbing, then those will feel easy. If you like steep climbing, those will feel easy.

I don't think there is an 11a in the Red that feels harder than any other 11a... its all in what you prefer.

That said, all 11a's are easy, and you might be a little extra defensive about the dog. Just sayin.
