not rock climbing
None of you will make it
not rock climbing
None of you will make it
Being a faggot
You never started
I want to get into it. What kind of gear do you need?
why post a picture of a hollywood actor who cant climb past v3 and just happens to be friends with real climbers?
how much do you weigh
what course can you finish
Lads, how do I get into rock-climbing without encountering smug pricks like OP?
just started and this is quickly erasing any need for cardio machines of any sort
my fucking hands
Never tried anything seriously challenging but this gymnasium type thing I used to go to as a kid had a few walls and some bouldering stuff. I had fun as a kid doing it, I imagine I'd like it now as well.
Might look into it.
I just did my second session. After about 30-45 minutes my shoulders and forearms are just burning and I can't climb in any meaningful sense anymore. Is this normal? Or do I just suck. I'm 80 kilos and 5'8 so I'm pretty heavy. My friends all climbed better than me but I want to improve. HELP ME
Dude what? Momoa climbs v7 as a hobbyist. That's pretty good especially for his size
Youre salty af
rock climbing seems cool but how comee it feels like everyone who does it is gay
Go with your friends. I do with mine and it’s loads of fun. Cunts like OP are salty they have no friends to climb with
join a bouldering gym. all you need is shoes and a chalk bucket
can climb 5.9 / V3
no body pic but I'm pretty fat still
hoping to get a lean efficient body like the guys who coach climbing teams here
just keep at it. you're gonna make it!
It's a cope hobby for lanklets with disproportionate limb length.
this is not necessarily good advice. if you're a social person with a decent friend group, climbing with friends is nice.
if you have social retardation and don't enjoy being around humans, you should boulder instead of roped climbing. climb by yourself, focus on the rock, go when it's not busy.
But I go bouldering at least twice a week.
rock climbing is for light men
I was the same as you mate. Took a month or two of climbing regularly to build up my endurance.
If you want to burn yourself out and feel super pumped don't take any rest and do problems that for you are easy to moderate in difficulty.
Otherwise take plenty of rest between attempts. You'll get there in time.
my fucking hands
All of this. Say goodbye to callouses and hello to ludicrous exfoliation.
Good advice. Sometimes I feel social and it's good for climbing or bouldering in groups. But if you don't want to talk to people, you can boulder. Take headphones and focus on training hard and climbing hard.
Not op but
V6/ at most 5.11
at least 1/2/3/4
You don't, they are kind if part of it. The nice thing is that you do not have to interact with them. Think of it as a chance to mog them. Most of them cannot into .5/1/2/3
Climbing is a terrible way of building muscle. Notice how everybody in the climbing gym is skinny as fuck.
Another fad """sport""", that will hopefully go away soon and make room for actual physical activity.
It's all about keeping the weight low, true.
But the forearms gains are real.
I hope you are right user. It's litterally the new crossfit for skinny out of shape people.
What do you consider "making it" in rock climbing?
Is 5.14 and V11 on multiple rock type something to aspire to?
I know grades are quite vain, I see them more as a testament of ability rather than a goal in itself.
bodybuilding seems cool but how come it feels like everyone who does it is gay
for manlets as well, good strength to weight ratio.
What do you consider "making it" in rock climbing?
Not falling off the rock.
I've been climbing since August 2018, September much more seriously. Lost my main partner is now my ex so I mostly just boulder.
5' 11", 190lbs
I want to climb up a tall mountain make my way to a cliff and take a shit over the edge. Once that is done I have no further interest in climbing
Nobody should be bragging about climbing v3s
Surely bouldering is more convenient but in your opinion what do you prefer?
finally, a sport for gay manlets
it's a hard call honestly.
I'd have to say I really do prefer to climb on lead. It's much more fun and having a climbing partner pushing to push to be better while he/she pushes you to be better is healthy as fuck. Not to mention I want to start making climbing trips, but I'm not at the level to take entire cross country trips to seek out famous boulders. Famous sport and trad climbs on the other hand are worth the trip in my opinion.
I can't deny that primarily boulder has made me a much better climber because I've gotten pretty strong, and the emphasis on footwork is so prevalent when you start to break into v4/v5 you watch your feet more often. In my gym anyway, precise footwork on the walls doesn't really begin to make or break you into 5.10+ and 5.11a.
Was your ex a bisexual sjw? 99% of the climbing chicks I've encountered, while athletic and in good shape, are absolutely insufferable once they open their mouths.
The only climbing girls that aren't completely fucked in the head are Asians
a pair of shoes (you can also go barefoot but most gyms don't allow it), chalk is usually provided by the gym (you can also clomb without chalking like a real man)
climb without chalking like a real man....except literally every professional climber uses chalk lol
lmao no, she wasn't. but I do know the type you're describing and I haven been climbing with a girl kinda recently who fits that bill, but she kinda ghosted me so..
was close to sending my first outdoor v6 last weekend at pic related but usually climb v5
Chalk, shoes. And also a harness if you want to top rope in a gym. They already have ropes
tell that to magnus midtbo
fuck rope climbing
btw - for all of you guys who actually care about climbing /out/ usually has a climbing general. most often times it's a pretty solid thread although kind of slow.
everybody at my gym is super chill and helpful i've never had somebody act smug towards me there
Then you don't climb with Asians and gays
I dunno man there are Asians there maybe its a geographical thing
mostly because at extreme grades, conditions are what will decide if a send happens or not. So ensuring your tips are not moist is necessary.
But I do OP.
finally sent my first 5.12 indoors
climb 5.10/11 outdoors
IMMEDIATELY after sending the 5.12 indoors my finger starts hurting
can't climb with my ring/pinky fingers on my dominant hand, barely can use my middle finger
Fucking sucks it's my only hobby. I can't even lift either. I feel like life just took a giant shit on me until this heals.
I wanted to be happy about the 5.12 but this just sucks
eh I think telling people to climb without chalk because it's somehow more manly is just irresponsible but whatever
have you gone to the doctor?
not irresponsible, just stupid
Skin is also very personal, some people have softer skin than others and sweat less/more.
I don't think you need chalk as a beginner climbing on massive gym jugs.
did you hear the dreaded "pop" ?
Are some knuckes swollen?
what causes pain? Is there some trigger point? Can you pinch the sides of your fingers? torque it a little bit?
Does it hurt more when crimping, can you still hold 3 finger-drag?
a GP will be useless, find a physio / sport specialist.
going to the doctor
Sure, if he wants to fork out 5000 bucks for some painkillers and then descend into a life of opioid addiction.
Might as well save the 5000 and go straight to the local dealer.
haha wow i don't even know how to respond to that
not exclusively bouldering
Only autists and closet suicidal actually enjoy rope climbing. The knuckle buster needs a mental therapist not a physical one
i think anybody that is serious about climbing should be using chalk. if they are just trying it out to see if they like it sure I agree with you.
She did you a favor. The medium of climbing is actually in favor of gender equality due to the technique and flexibility required. Climber girls get deluded by this shit and thinks it's transfers over into other physical activity. They're typically brought back to reality when a man with a 500 deadlift choke fucks them and spits in their anus.
Doesn't help that most male climbers thee chicks are surrounded by are nerdy <170lb twinks either.
You're far more likely to die from opioid addiction than getting murdered by a nigger.
Protip: if it hurts and the doctor can't identify it, they just prescribe you powerful painkillers. Joint pain, back pain, any kind of general pain that a doctor can't identify and you just wasted a ton of money on something a drug deal could've "prescribed" heroin for.
Hell, heroin would probably be safer too.
he is too afraid to climb above a bolt and run it out
taking any sort of life advice from an acro yoga purple haired loser
You like getting tied up by other men don't you faggot?
who hurt you bro?
alright bud thanks for the insight
You gays did with your bullshit. You played lefties like a fiddle with your "were cute and cuddly innocent LGBT" crap.
As soon as you feel comfortable you do all sorts of weird shit like wear fishnets, dye your armpit hair purple and do gay PDA in the middle of the climbing gym. I can't work on any project without any of you faggots staring at my ass. Or some weird trans dude in a sports bra and a dick bulge walking around the gym barefoot like he owns the place.
I can't exercise or climb in peace without you degenerates disgusting me.
lol what kind of fucked up place do you climb at? Just go outside instead of the safe-space comfy soft gym
I can do the easier climbing stuff, but just the thought of climbing causes my palms to start sweating really bad. Wat do?
time and experience is really the best way to overcome nerves like that man
Nah it's starting to get better on it's own after 2 weeks. I can hang from pullup bar, even do pullups with very little pain. Just been taking it extra easy so it doesn't last longer than it needs. But that means avoiding the gym too because any hard gripping (for example, around a barbell) would be a problem even.
No pop so that's why I'm thinking it was only a small tear or something. It happened after I finished my project, tried a boulder route that was a new fairly pinchy v5 and once I failed I went to site down and noticed it was hurting. No sharp pain when falling or anything, it just came after.
Originally it caused pain to grip anything, hang from jugs even, but no swelling or pain from pressing the sides of the finger around pulley areas. None of that stuff hurts luckily so it's probably a short term injury I just hate being out for a few weeks even. The student clinic at my uni has physios if you get recommended but I'm already gonna go for a back injury (because I'm stupid and hurt myself squatting too) so I need to prioritize.
I just really hate injuries right now
Climbing gym in a major liberal US city. It's fucking death
It is filled to the brim with purple haired homokin autists and ex-swimmer mutant feminists with disgusting faces and massive shoulders. Weird pre-op trans people wearing revealing clothing is fucking gross. Or some white girl in neon spandex, French braids and a basic tattoo giggling on a V1
The only people I see who send harder than V9 regularly are loaded asians who don't have jobs and hang around the climbing gym 24/7.
Its the only good place for climbing and lifting but if I could swap for a less SJW gym I'd be out in an instant. This gym made me despise liberals and I'd never go anywhere near /pol/
Then I'd suggest taking it easy into the rehab : rest a few days then start easy movements with your fingers, pressing a ball, rice bucket kind of thing, doesn't matter.
If you are used to hangboarding you can also try lightly to use it as a rehab tool.
Good luck user, it sounds like something minor that will slowly go away over the next few weeks.
Anything else than free climbing is faggit pretentious tier.
hall climb fags will cope
sounds like a nightmare.
I climb in a major liberal euro city and the only trans person in my gym is a teenager girl from the gym's team, she's becoming a guy and you couldn't even tell she's trans. Very low-key and nothing to hate about it, legit wants to be a normal boy and not some freak show-tier creature.
Of course this person can't do competition anymore because of the test treatment, legit roids lol.
are you attempting to interchange free climbing for free soloing?
can’t tell if you’re trolling or just retarded
Is climbing enough for a cardio workout?
Anything less than lead climbing is shittier. Imagine being proud of v9 on a plastic wall. Little adolescent girls can do it. I watched an 8 year old flash 5.11+ on plastic. Its hard but its not dangerous or particularly cool or a better way to strength train than weightlifting.
Some run out chossy trad is god tier
V4 at my gym.
It's mostly anaerobic effort with some aerobic components (forearm), unless you do laps on the autobelay on super easy stuff it's not cardio.
I'm a boulder bro and it's so comfy. Just lay on your pad between burns and always give 105% effort no matter what.
Going to font this weekend and pretty psyched, some friend wants to get a feel on some of the big four.
But I agree, some hard lead sport and even more trad require more work and is more satisfying in the end. (also more prone to burnout if you overshoot)
Indoor climbing is fake and pozzedpilled. Outdoor climbing isn't possible for me I don't live in the right area and don't want to pay for training and other weird shit.
V1 in my backyard
I want to get into climbing but no friends to belay me :(
Check if your gym has a belay buddy meetup
rockclimber is truly the GOAT physique for a woman. Prove me wrong.
bouldering is FUN and stops me from the temptation of getting fat
10/10 would get tendinitis in both my elbow again
Precisely why men who rock climb as their "exercise" and not for fun look like women.
Nope, they have nubby rough hands. Would not date again.
If it gives me a back like this then I'm all for it
Why would I would everyone thinking Im a homosexual?
Looks like a mob from resident evil
I want to puke everytime somebody compares climbing to lifting. You would have to be an actual idiot to climb for gains instead of the fun / getting better at climbing / getting better weight:strength ratio.
It's like telling somebody who plays golf or does mountain biking that they do it for the wrong reasons just because they don't end up looking buffed..
Jow Forums is too insecure for things like climbing
I mean if you're climbing 5.14s you're among the best in the world so I guess you can call that making it
The Dawn Wall was free climbed only in 2015 and it's basically a series of 5.13s and 5.14s for 2500+ feet
All the rock climbers I see are manlets. Give me some lanklet motivation.
Behold, arguably the best living climber around
You can rent everything. The gym I go to is $28 for all day with shoe rental. Front desk guy is a bro who throws harness in for free if we decide to do the tall wall.
6a-6b (did 6c boulder easy bc it was raw strength focused)
like shit, probably 15% fat
nice pic, is that speed of life?
yeah but climbing a few single pitch 5.14a you projected for a while is wildly different that many in a row including 2 5.15d, not even talking logistics to work it.
I don't think I'll ever climb 5.14+ but 5.14- seems physically possible with enough experience. (I probably won't ever get there, it's still pretty elite level)
Honnold is 5’11”
$70-100 shoes and some chalk for indoor bouldering.
Add a harness for $40-50 and an ATC. I forget how much they are, probably $25. I use a GriGri for lead now after avoiding them for years. They don't go bad though. If you don't lead an ATC and harness will last 10 years.
To set up top rope climbs out doors: a $90 rope, some webbing for trees, a few beaners and some slings for setting up bolts. $60 maybe.
To lead sport, same rope, plus a pack of quick draws for $100 and probably a helmet. Slings required too to clean. Probably should just learn to belay lead on the safer $80 GriGri but then you need an ATC or figure 8 still to rappel.
To actually go out and climb any place you want, $700 or so in cams, tricams, stoppers, and extra gear.
Plus all the travel. It's a money pit. I easily have spent $15,000 on travel and gear, guides in some places. And I learned with friends for free. Lessons to lead comfortably on trad are like $3,000 week long courses, but people love to teach too in the community.
yes sir that's speed of life and the climber is Alex Waterhouse
V3s in the Adirondacks are harder than gym V6s though (been a member at 5 different gyms, always true).
I'd sure like to think In a 5.12c climber like the gym says, but I'm not and no one there is either.
where in the dacks are you near?
No matter how much you shill it here you wont make it any less soi/lesbo. I'd bet money there's a whole foods and REI within a block of your climbing "gym"... maybe even sharing a parking lot.
He doesn't have a lot of mass though. In regards to strength, his grip and his back are strong as fuck, his chest is decently strong, but his leg and bicep strength are not that great despite how long he's been involved with climbing.
being the vegan of sports
I think that's already a given
burly v7, crimpy slab v5. I'm a gymfag though
heavy bros unite
yeah and pl, wl, and bb are for manlets. doesnt mean you cant have fun and also get pretty damn good at it. oh wait, I forgot, youre a weak faggot
I used to be in Lake George.
In Utah now. Everything is a grade easier down south, a grade and a half out west. Gyms in general sandbag their routes.
Out of shape people climb 5.10 in a few weeks
Is 5.14 and V11
people plateau at wildly different grades. but I would say unless you were flashing v5s within your first month of climbing you will never reach this level
you are so fucking retarded holy shit
Rhythmic gymnastics is the pinnacle. You have been proven wrong.
Just injured my fingers fucking again. It's literally my only stress realese and now I'm out for at least two weeks. Fucking feet came off while my hand was in a pocket.
I stopped climbing because it was too time consuming. Got better things to be doing tbqh. My friends that climb 3+ times every week are stupid strong though.
Has anyone here tried BPC157 or MK677 for healing injuries?
not op, but you would typically be wrong in most areas. climbing is very tough for the average person, and a climber is farther from soi than your typical gym goer. lots of hippy, earthy, nature people, but not many are actually beta males/females. the sport doesn't attract that type?
no health insurance
Yea fuck that one small slip and I snap my shit up
no health insurance
lmao at your life
