fuckin with you..do you want to climb long routes/walls? if so then go for it dude. though i would recommend going to a rock gym first and just scratching up the easiest stuff you can find. repeat ad nauseum until you start getting a sense of body awareness. you'll meet people/be drawn to the outdoors eventually. nothing wrong with getting a guide to take you out for your first taste though.

i do hike in the Gunks and lower NY parks pretty often and seeing those guys climb by mohonk/new paltz really get me intrigued...so whatever type of climbing they do with the ropes and all (sorry totally clueless about climbing jargon)

 

but also would love to try bouldering, again, even if on a very low level

harriman/bear mtn park is about 30 mins from me and where i spend the majority of my hikes and have noticed guys on the trail with those crash pads on their packs...so im assuming they boulder around there too.....so this is something that i think i might as well fit in considering how often i visit these places

 

side note my 3.5 yr old son seems to be taking a liking to climbing small rocks in the park....maybe we could learn together or some gay shit like that eventually lol

 

thanks

 

this is a tiny one that he literally spiderman'd onto while holding his toy, but ill try to post vid of him climbing a 7-8 foot "rock wall" when i get a chance
