>Should I start climbing?
Yes. Or no, if your primary care physician wouldn't clear you.

>How do I start toproping?
Read a book? Call your local climbing gym? Take a course with a local guide? There are a lot of ways to get started!

>How do I start bouldering outside?
See above.

I find the wood holds cause less skin loss so I make sure I spend at least half my time using them, even if those climbs are less fun

Oh the irony. But Im more bothered by the fact I might not be able to squeeze in a 7a project before the mountain season starts.

Thank you for reading my blog.

Is it nirmal for climbing shoes to hurt to the point of having to take them of during sessions. If not, how do i stretch them out?
>>
>>145224
Just using them usually streches them over time. That being said, taking your shoes off while you're resting is a good habit to have to make it easier on your feet. Aslo, dont buy super small shoes. They should (idealy) fit like a sock
>>
>>145224
Yeah that's normal, they'll break in eventually and taking your shoes off between attempts is a good idea anyways

This is my fear. I was fine with paying the small prize for the Hukkataival doc because that actually depicted a new milestone in climbing. But the more likely reason for the delay is that nowdays everyone and they grandma is throwing stuff in youtube that's better produced than regular TV so you don't want to be the low-effort asshole.

the cheapest $2 block of chalk that the gym sells that lasts me two months

Whatever is cheapest. I have tried all and it makes no difference. Do not spend money on premium chalk and you do not need liquid.

>>147238
nah only 15 meters or so and i found it afterwards. it was a top rope solo test, no danger at all but i was nervous and trying to be careful, double checking everything i did, and i went to hang it on my harness and suddenly i felt something drop and heard the "cling" down below and i felt a chill down my spine, i felt so stupid man.

lesson learned always hang things into your harness with the carabiner opening pointing upwards, in a down to up motion, never up to low, that's what must have happened in my case because i took special care that it never left the carabiner, even when i took it off the rappel. it fell when i opened the carabiner to attach it to the back of my harness

This is false if you have sweaty hands, premium stuff(friction labs) is just way nicer chalk, lasts longer, and doesn't end up as a little cluster of pebbles in your chalk bag. Only downside is that it is harsher on your skin and your skin gets thinner faster.

I wasn't a huge fan of Keenan Takahashi's Antigrav brand to begin with, but I was always a big fan of him as a climber and a person.
It's so sad that in their latest drop they are using stolen artwork.
I contacted the original artist and they were unaware of its usage.
It is also obvious that they knew what they were doing by the subtle changes they made to the design.

I just hope they paid someone to make the design and had no idea it was stolen.

Get softer shoes for inside climbing. Most gyms don't set heinously shit feet, so there is no need for hawk talons.

The softer shoes encourage good footwork. If you have shit footwork your rubber is fucked

Difference between v3 and v4 in my gym is that v4 is still just a lot of juggy holds but with weirder body positioning and more core stability required to maintain those positions. V5 is where the handholds start getting smaller and you really just need to work on finger strength.

How the FUCK do people get in enough lifting to be stronger/look better as well as enough climbing in to actually improve at that without one negatively impacting the other? If I climb one day, my elbows hurt like shit if I lift or climb the next. Same with lifting, if I do one day I cannot climb to my full potential the next.

What's your routine look like /cg/? Are you strong/do you look strong or are you DYEL?
>>
>>148086
this dude >>146965 is probably one of the strongest climbers in the world and he looks DYEL as fuck. it's all about finger strength, footwork/technique bro
>>
>>148086
If you want to avoid looking DYEL, which is definitely the most ideal body for climbing, you have to get stupid strong fingers.

Personally, I look DYELish but my muscles are significantly stronger than a lot of people who appear larger than me. And I am not talking about proportionally.

The best advice is to train your fingers, assuming that you're at a level where you can do it consistently and healthily. Stronger fingers will allow you to train other thinks more effectively.
>>
>>148086
>What's your routine look like /cg/?

Winter: boulder/climb gym 1-2x/week + ice climb/winter route over weekend
Spring: crag climbing 2x/week
Summer: crag climb 0-1x/week, alpine routes 1-3x/week
Autumn: crag climb 2x/week, 1x/week alpine route if the weather holds in the mountains

Don't look like a roided dude, but I do have some definition. Can't climb higher than 7a THOUGH.

DYEL is mostly a term used on /fit/, where if you can't see the muscle with a shirt on, then they dont lift.
Adam like most high level climbers have very visible muscles when under tension such as in your picture.
But put a shirt on him? Looks a normal guy.

Warm up fully. Try hard in the middle of the session. Avoid trying limit climbing when you know you're tired. Obviously, you'll need to learn when your body can't take hard climbing, but that should come with time.

Sounds like nobody told you how stupid that is. Don't use your arms at all if you're going to jump off, there's a video online of a girl breaking her arms doing that. Downclimb, and if that's not an option, roll/flop over on landing. Speedy recovery, anon

This sounds impossible
>>
>>148788
My guess is he's topped out on something that's like rounded on top so he's jumped forward off it to clear the top because no-one told him about the ladder.

I always downclimb at least a bit if it's possible because landing in climbing shoes feels awful.
>>
>>148792
You also just save your knees when down climbing. No reason to awkwardly load them by jumping down at a bad angle, in shoes that are bad at absorbing impact and on a soft mattress that increases the chance of twisting something.
You have a long life ahead of you and need those knees.

You also get double the workout if you climb both ways.

I always downclimb and hate taking falls from the top of a bouldering wall. I'm also a runner and I notice that just taking a few unexpected falls in a session can really aggravate my achilles tendons and make them sore during a run. There's really no reason not to downclimb

I got a mild pain in my wrist after climbing a couple days ago, just from googling the symptoms it looks like TFCC or whatever. Went climbing again today anyway but just stuck to easy stuff (like <6b) to see what it feels like, didn't get worse and actually feels slightly better after I got it moving. Am I good to keep climbing or should I take a longer break?

Hate it when simps who struggle with a V4+ follow around girls in the gym, giving them shitty advice and talking needlessly loud so others know he is super fucking serious and is a master. Indoor climbing gyms should make it a rule that there is no talking while bouldering unless the climber asks for advice.

Guys I downclimbed like half way before I jumped off (maybe i didnt go as far down as i am remembering but it wasnt that high I swear). I didnt jump forward I fell backward like youre supposed to. I didnt think that I should be tucking my arms or something when I fall. I dont think that's really necessary, I think i just got unlucky, it happens and it's not the gym's fault. As far as how I bounced onto the hard ground, I must have pushed off of the wall when I jumped, which gave me some momentum and caused me to bounce backwards. That or the padding didnt go as far back as I thought at that spot, since it sort of contours around the walls. They could use more surface area for padding in my opinion. Either way I will be going back once im healed and I will be more conscious of my body when coming off of the wall.
Also what's this about a ladder?
>>
>>149264
>Also what's this about a ladder?
My gym has all the top out boulders on a big central blob and there's a V -1 for you to use to climb down that's referred to as the ladder. I don't know how standard this actually is.

My gym doesnt have one, you just have to throw your feet aroud the each and search for a hold.

Also there are just broken screws all over the place sticking out the wall. Which i feel like is pretty dangerous, as i have already torn my pants twice on them.

ive started liking them more since i can do them at the end of my sessions when im way too fucking tired to do anything else, more fun than going home even if i will never get anything from them

>>149244
Climb more slab. Try more dynos. Actively think about your climbing instead of pulling yourself up problems. Repeat sent boulders with the intention of doing them better.
>>
>>149387
You should find a new gym honestly, being able to land outside of the mats even falling from the top with a lot of momentum should be impossible

Fuck that shit. I've scraped myself enough just sliding down the slide of a slab, I can't imagine going hard at a gym were falling might mean opening myself up on a proud nail.

OH MY GOD
Last season I was starting to wonder if Oriane was one of the juniors who showed a lot of early promise but then flamed out once it got serious. Keep in mind Oriane is one of the few juniors to win both boulder and lead in the same youth world championship. I think she was youth B at the time, then skipped straight to the adult world cup circuit. Thrilled to see she's back with a vengeance.

Futaba is my favorite from team Japan. She's fun. One of these days she will get a medal.
>>149793
I'm afraid of heights but it's weird in regards to climbing. I can do top rope and lead without being nervous at all. However if I stand on the top of the wall and look down I start to get very antsy. I guess it's something to do with feeling in control of the situation for me.

Do you have a channel you'd recommend or any advice on what I should search for?

I've just started climbing and they had one of the recent comps playing in the background at the gym with the commentators talking about old school vs new school - I'd love to pull up some old school comps on youtube so I can see the difference.

You're a dummy (also likely fat) and will probably hurt yourself again when you go back. Falling properly helps because when you're bouldering you are constantly taking weird falls and mentally prepping yourself to not put your wrists behind you with the easy falls will prevent you from snapping your wrist or elbow when you take a fall from actual height.
>>
>>150027

Well now I know not to stick my hands out. I will probably never go climbing outdoors, because there's nowhere to do that where I live. Also i'm in better shape than you.
>>
>>150054
>I will probably never go climbing outdoors, because there's nowhere to do that where I live
I wasn't talking about outdoors at all. Falling from 7 or 8 feet on to a mat is enough to totally fuck up a limb or joint if you fall incorrectly
>Also i'm in better shape than you.
I promise you that is not true

DAE go to a climbing gym with tampons in the men's restroom? Or pride flags displayed in a cult-like manner, even outside of pride month? Or race and gender-based meetups? When they say "climbing is for everyone," does that include chuds (or really just anyone who cringes at the above)?

>>150456
Idk m8, I don’t see or hear any of that shit at my gym. Even if I see someone wearing some prideslop shirt or merch, they’re stuck getting pumped on a V1, and I don’t talk with them. Throw the tampons away if it bothers you, since it just seems like a marketing gimmick to get casuals to commit to a gym membership then maybe go four times max

No. Fucking hell no.
Or pride flags displayed in a cult-like manner, even outside of pride month?
One of the gyms near me has small (5x3cm or so) sticker on the door with a homo flag and "everyone's welcome". There might be another one in the bathroom or on the community noticeboard, can't really recall.
Haven't noticed any at my other gym but I assume there is. At that point I just filter that garbage out.
>race and gender-based meetups?
First gym - I think they have a women climb 1/2 price evening or something. Maybe some sort fag meetups as well. Can't recall anything racial.
Second gym - not that I'm aware of, maybe if I checked their Facebook or whatever.
>When they say "climbing is for everyone," does that include chuds (or really just anyone who cringes at the above)?
Probably not. On the other hand, one of my mates has a pretty big White Pride tattoo and he's never had anyone start anything when he's been climbing.

>>
>>150456
>tampons in the men's restroom
Yes, it's laughable. And 90% of the gym staff are passive aggressive basedboys. I hate it but it's the only convenient gym around.
