A runner for most of my life, I never expected to get into climbing but here I am and loving it, although grateful I do wish I started much earlier. I've just completed 4 years of climbing in August of 2013. I usually slog myself to a climbing gym but get super-psyched when I climb outdoors, especially the Riverside Quarry. Thanks, Louie.
My climbing is centered just as I did running. Build up mileage, alot of it. Runners will usually build a base for a few months before "race day". This is what I usually end up doing and try to be patient about it. Goal for the next year is to link Half Dome and El Cap in a day. With the right amount of work I think it can be done.
I recently took on a group of very awesome students and began to coach them and teach them the skills of Rock-climbing. It was a long and difficult process to get this club approved at my district, but through alot of hard work I managed to get an official climbing club approved at a local high school I work at. Since then I have not climbed outside for myself so much. Its a real joy working with these kids. I posted a link to the page so give a shout out and support. :)
