I rock climb and have a buddy that's been trying to get me out to the catskills to ice climb. I wouldn't mind trying it but the thought of being protected on something that melts is a little intimidating...
is ...don't fall...
its tons of fun ive led a few pitches.. and mostly top rope..
its not as intimidating once you get in the groove, usually the biggest challenge is keeping warm while your belaying..
being in parsippany i guess you climb in NJ rock gym?
i havent been in the gym in forever.... a house and two kids later does that
I climb there when I get a chance. I used to be there a lot but the more I ride outside the less time I have for NJRG. Plus I'm going to be joining a regular gym soon so there's less time for the rock gym. When I can I love to get outdoors. Climbing sport up at West Point has been my fav as of late. Only about an hour or so away and 60+ routes to play on. Works for me!
