Starting Climbing:

If you’re new to climbing, don’t be worried, it takes awhile to get use to it. I recommend learning to top rope first; you’ll always have the rope to catch you and you can take breaks without coming off the rock. Gyms are great because the holds are typically brightly marked by tape and many give free lessons. Don’t be discouraged at becoming tired quickly, climbing uses multiple muscle groups at once so it’s easy to tire.


If you’re looking for a climbing partner, I recommend ClimbFind!
