Pick up John Long's How to Rock Climb and Freedom of the Hills, by Mountaineers Press.

Read them both at least two times and take it from there.

Be safe, and have fun.

Also, practice knots at home. Over and over.

And cue the old saying......climbing in general is just like sex....once you get past the smell....you've got it licked.

Climbing is way better than sex. You can climb all day, but sex only lasts 3-4 hours.

Kenny, don't worry i have a pair, I only have two problems I'd need a very large crack (don't know of any near me) to anchor them and I'd prefer not hang off of them, might hurt a little bit.

Never clipped a bolt my first four years climbing.Pulling gear/placing gear,that was it.Started clippin' about my fifth year.Almost got killed sport climbing about twenty years later.Stupid,stupid mistake!Got complacent.It's all inherently dangerous when on vertical terrain.I think a solid mentor is about the best thing you can do.Main thing:Don't get complacent.

Andrew Bisharat (? sp) wrote a book about sport climbing. I have seen it and it has everything you need. Good luck.

Reed, this seems like a VERY funny post...considering the hijacking we have given your thread.

Sorry.

Sort of.
