They all thought I was crazy when I said I was going to learn to Rock climb…
But when they saw the pictures of my first ascent there skepticism was turned to amazement .
If you’re a complete beginner and you want to learn how to rock climb…if you posses some basic skills but want to advance further…if you want to discover the “inside tricks” of rock climbing pros… then this website was written just for you.
There’s No Simple Guide!
That’s when I realized I’d have to figure all this out on my own. I decided I was going to do some major studying.
I called up some friends who had more experience than me and they gave me some beginners tips.
I got every magazine, book, and even started reading a lot of websites. Here’s what I found out…
It Can Be Hard, Or Even Dangerous, IF You Don’t Know What You’re Doing!
But rewarding, fun, and it will get you in top shape (something that I really needed)
Here are some good reasons why you can get started right away:
• It’s a relatively inexpensive sport
• It will get you in top shape
• The more you know the more fun it will be
• You can practice as much as you want – you don’t have to be on a cliff
• If you make any mistakes it’s not going to be deadly- you can start the basics at lower heights
After I did all this research it was like my climbing improved ten-fold. I’m even proud to say I cleared my first Grade IV at Yosemite last week!
What I realized was that I had compiled enough information to create a straight-to-the-point simple guide to help other people learn to climb… so they wouldn’t have to go through the painful research and trial and error I had to go through.
