Looking for a partner for Melbourne gyms 5-Sep-2012 At 11:11:50 AM peteclimbs
I don't have any issue with them checking you out. Let's face it, lead climbing in a gym environment, particularly one where the lead wall and top roping are mixed, can get quite funky. My beef is that they make it so frickin' hard. I just want to climb!

I got back from a couple of weeks of climbing in the US yesterday. I actually hit up one or two gyms over there. Both put us through our paces with a fall/catch test. The staff there were friendly, knowledgeable and on the job. No complaints at all. From walking in the door to climbing was 10 mins.

Off topic, but I got my arse handed to me at New River Gorge this trip. I know there's a bit of debate about which is cooler, the New or the Red but, having now climbed both, the New is just beautiful. Grading is a fair bit stiffer and bolting is way more heady than the Red IMO. Sadly I don't trad as the options at the New are unreal.
