Anyone else free solo here? I find the idea of climbing equipment ridiculous when nature gave us hands.

Both. Not really this is mostly inside due to time constraints.

Running and weightlifting always helps you improve. If I plateau, ill either stop climbing so much and take a break because of sore tendons or fix myself onto a higher grade or two.

Kek, im not gonna fucking climb in near frezzing temp. Numb toes always lead to shitty techniques
>>35169012
Im not suicidal, but I do some highball boulders. I cant tell you how often a person would run towards me freaked out thinking my fall killed me.
>>
Currently V3 bouldering, its god tier for forearms/gripstrength/basically everything. Give it a try to be honest familia

afraid of heights, anyone has any idea how to get rid of it? If I start climbing, will it help me conquer my fears?

Just looking at these pictures made my palm sweat.

Yes. Had the same problem. I'm >>35169012 and completely fine now. Kick that fear in the face.

Free solo is not about being macho stupid. It forces you to continuesly evaluate the safety of your climb. For me it teaches me about my limits every time I try a new challenge and empowers me every time i go beyond them.
>>
I climb towers as part of my job sometimes. It sucks. I'd like to get into some recreational climbing though.
>>
>>35169012
Balls of steel as well as hands of steel. Respect.
>>
>>35169642
You never really let go of the fear. I'm climbing 3 years and I'm still afraid of heights. Try telling your belaybro that your going to intentionally fall so that you can desensitize yourself to falling.
>>
>>35169561
>I'm not suicidal.
You just do a climb and don't fall off. Are you saying you have never aced a climb before?
>>
I'm a v5 boulderer atm, although leading is still something I would do too to a higher grade.
>>
>>35169770
damn, who made this poor kid pose like this
>>
>>35169833
Are you saying you ace every single climb? With free solo you fall you ded.

>>35169862
this picture is older then internet m8, no1 knows.

Yeah this shit is just stupid. It's all badass and big balls until you're dead. Tons of excellent climbers have died because of free climbing. The technology exists, use it.
>>

>The technology exists, use it.
You're one of those 'why walk when we can drive' kind of guys arent you.
Free solo is a different kind of challenge. If people want to risk their life it's their choice, but you can also do it safely and non 'big balls
. And 'free climbing' uses safety ropes BTW.
>>
>>35170035
Ok, I misunderstood. If you've got a harness and a safety rope, climb on.

started climbing indoors a month ago. Going once a week, I suck at everything to do with this.

Does it just get easier through practice or are there any techniques I need to remember? Also will this make me fitter in addition to the gym 3 times a week?

Emotional Freedom Technique. It's hypnosis but you also tap part of your body. I've been on a plane, roller-coasters, and up the Blackpool Tower since I heard about it.
>>
Started in mid September and had to take off October due to an injury at work. I finally got a chance to hit the gym hard in November and right now I can do most V2s and some V3s.

You guys are impressive climbing those harder walls. How long did it take you to get to a higher level and is their any routines you recommend I add to increase my climbing skill?

Work on your footwork desu senpai. That and pay attention to your hips. Turning into the wall or a dropped knee can do all lot more for you than being "ducking zyzz brah" and thundering up the wall using total upper body strength and using terrible footwork.

If you are having trouble with your footwork try just putting the tip of your rockshoe on the hold and using quiet feet while doing a traverse warm up. Eventually you will see a huge improvement on your climbing.

If you consider v6-7 and 5.11d as hard then it took me 2 years

I second this.
>>
>>35170180
>Alternative medicine
Just climb lead and don't clip for a few then jump off the wall. Repeat this a few times and the fear'll be gone in no time.
>>
>>35168777
Only bouldering indoors at the moment. V2. So hard to progress! How do you guys incorporate climbing and lifting?
>>
>>35170791
Good tips. Going forward, for warm ups, I'll do easier climbs on my feet and keep footwork in mind.

And I do notice the experience climbers using their foot just as much as their arms to climb stuff.

Its tricky though when you got straight hanging rocks to assail. I'm just going to have to keep practicing.

You're either bullshitting or you haven't really tried to redpoint a route.
