I'm slightly offended to be classified as a "guy" or is this not aimed at females? Boys aren't the only ones who can crank boulder problems, rip it up on multi pitch monsters or pump plastic in gyms you know...

personally i think some damn good heavy metal (but not too deathlike) is the key when cranking hard. techno sux and really bothers me when you get distracted from the climb cos the cd sounds like its skipping. i really hope sabu doesn't read that i admitted his music is good for anything.... lol

I forgot to mention Frank Senatra. he was playing at hardrock the other day and it sounded great to climb to when cranked up loud.

I think we should all be offended (from dictionary.com) Seeing point 3...

1.Informal. A man; a fellow.
2.guys Informal. Persons of either sex.
3.Chiefly British. A person of odd or grotesque appearance or dress.
4.often Guy An effigy of Guy Fawkes paraded through the streets of English towns and burned on Guy Fawkes Day.

Guy has now been for a while used as a non gender reference to persons/people.

And Steph, it's Frank Sinatra.

HAH! how dare you insult metal!!! though i do find it interesting that you know so much about the Hair bands like Guns & Roses.
but yes a question to the maker; where is the metal option ?????? nothing gets you pumped like some sweet metal, for example Mudvayne, In Flames, Slipknot, Nightwish, Iron Maiden or Sepultura (PM me for more info!!).
music at the crags just doesn't go but GOOD music in the gym is great.
ahh yes i almost forgot to mention Cradle of Filth, gotta love the heavy gothic metal!!!
and yes steph i did take note of you admission, i can't ignore my influence

How does one know when metal is too deathlike to climb to?

YOU dislike techno. YOU get distracted. YOU may have been listening to a cd that was skipping

I dig SOME types of techno, just as you dig SOME types of Metal. Psy-Trance Techno rocks my world,
but conversely, for Me, Industrial/Minimal/Hardcore Techno sucks the big one and that's the type that
probably annoys you.

personal preference on how heavy you like your metal i would assume, i've never been in that situation though :P !!! for example I know she doesn't like Cradle of Filth (Gothic Metal) just because they are too heavy but she does like In Flames (Heavy Metal) because they aren't as heavy. there are many types of metal, too many to name in fact but there are distinct differences.

maybe, but that doesn't change the fact that techno bites. ;) *runs away*

ok i agree there's diversity and that others tastes should be appreciated, the only problem is that i'm allergic to it, particularly psy-trance. it gives me this twitch that won't go away until i press stop or unplug the speakers or break the cd over the guilty party's head.


heeheheee..


what music do they play in melbourne gyms mainly? we get a lot of techno stuff in sydney gyms but at least i haven't heard pop stuff like "barbie girl" yet. i can imagine hearing that mid crux would sap a lot of ones faith in humanity and will to live, which are important motivators in keeping hold of the wall.

before you bag it, how much metal have you heard before? i have proved so many people wrong in the past, i reckon i could easily find a metal band that would make you take that back.

R.A.T.M. i reckon would go under the missing "metal" catagory or maybe neils "Rap" metal :P!!

actually i've been to a few doofs in my time and enjoyed a number of them too, i just can't stand it out of context. probably goes with not taking stuff any more too.. climbing is also such a down to earth mindset & trancey stuff is so intellectual, i reackon the clash it creates is like playing leonard cohen at a wedding or something.

So tell me Anthony, for you, what type(s) of music if any, seem to go with different aspects of climbing.
ie: what would you variously choose to listen to or have playing in your mind whilst - bouldering, slabbing,
vertical- crimpy, cracks, overhanging jug-hauls, big roofs etc

i think R.A.T.M's Killing in the Name ranks up there will "girls present" in terms of psyching up/cranking hard boulders.. anyone else ever noticed this phenomenon?

wow, what an exciting topic this has been (in the voice of larry enders)
now i just want to put a couple of points up.

i am sorry for the sexist pig that i am for using the word "Guy" to adress the male and female members of chockstone, and i did not mean to say that all of you have a bad sense in taste when it comes to fashion

also, too quote a young up and coming climbing, cass crane... "At a very young age I discovered what climbing was... a dance. Climbing is a flow of energy that can be a peaceful experience at the height of its intensity" (www.casscrane.com)
and tell me... what is a dance without music???

some musics greats have been brought up in this poll, Rage Against The Machine being a personal favourite

and in my experience, when at the gym, some good bouldering music would be a bit of Heavy Metal (Got the Life by korn, Chop Suey by System of a down), route climbing music is a good mix of Rap and RnB, Dance and a bit of Rock, although once in a blue moon i do get a craving for a bit of Marley, Jack Johnson or Smashing Pumpkins...
But then again, these are all just personal Choices/favourites..

I think it all comes down to what you like to listen too, wheather it is classic, Poodle Rock, Rap, Sunday Morning music or nothing at all...

Yeah Steve, Rage gets a fair bit of play in my garage, just ask the Norwegians who just can't get enough Rampstien (sp?). A little Cypress Hill is good "You can't get the best of me.......", great stuff. Punk is not bad, Pennywise etc, then sometimes it's Peter Tosh and Bob Marley or the Beasti Boys, just depends on how I feel. Just to keep the punters happy I even pull out a bit of 90's trance as well.
