Me again!
(Insults levied at above post for insinuating that anything over a week old is in fact dead.)

Anger

Excitement

Self congratulation


Righteous post about personal learning, personal accomplishment, and personal worth.

Some subtle spray perhaps?

Looking for help to send Gorka (my son) to enjoy sport/rock climbing with you.

I contact all of you looking for help and I would like to explain you my interest to send my son to USA or CANADA for some time to discover by himself new culture, shearing experiences with other people abroad, learning English and growing up as a climber. I think USA or CANADA will offer him a great opportunity.
I contact you from Bilbao and industrial city sited in the North of Spain, were the practice of rock climbing itīs very popular, my son 16th years old enjoys this sport training 3 / 4 days a week with enough experience inside and outside practice.

We contact you as climbers with full acknowledge so it will be easier for you to understand that I would like to send my son to practice / training rock climbing with experience people and learn some English (just sharing experiences with other people abroad, making good friends keeping a nice relationship).

Gorka as lot of climbers enjoy practice of some sports, rock climb, mountain bike, surf or climb the mountains. We are living in and area in the north of Spain were most people use to go to climb mountains.

Born on May 14Th, 1997 - 15/16 years old). Today’s graduation, 7a, 7b, 7b+ (5.12a, 5.12b, 5.12c) improving. Due to the fact the he is an sport young boy, participating in official competitions in our local Area and in Spain

Gorka does not speak English beyond the grammatical he could learn on the school, he works hard to get good results and enjoys climbing a lot.

My wife and I we consider that if we could find a place for him to stay in for 2/3 months in summer (July/August) climbing with other boys with no effort he will learn English meantime he improve climbing skills.

This is not a standard proposal but at least, as a father I would like to try the best.

Do you think it could be possible to find something similar for him?
Probably the best possibility would be to find a family of climbers with a boy of similar age or even older, itīs too difficult.

Thank you very much for you interest and good help.

As you are in contact with other climbers in your area may be you could recommend me something.

I do not know whether you could help us but please, in case you could, do not hesitate to contact me

Thank you for your good help
Best Regards

i would request a consensus on what gear to buy.....but i'd really like to see an 11 page spray session about why your gear is the best on earth and other people are simple minded for racking up something else. ze_dirtbag
