Any Rock Climbers Here?

This sport always fascinated me. I took a basic bouldering class a few years ago but wasn't too good. I'm thinking about doing another. If we had an indoor climbing gym nearby, I'd check it out.

Always fascinated me too. We went repelling on a week long canoe/ camping trip when I was in 6th grade... back when we were allowed to do fun things in school. In my 20ís I became interested in rock climbing, subscribed to Climbing magazine and gazed at the pages of beautiful scenery with the desire to do that too. I went as far as to get some climbing shoes & gear. Thatís as far as I got. I discovered I was afraid of heights and never tried it again lol. I hope your quest goes better than mine!

Thanks for the reply. Bouldering would be my go-to as we have lots of that in our area (within an hour's drive).

Gear isn't as intense, but one can still have $150+ in shoes, and crash pads can be at least that and more, and you can never have enough crash pads.
