That's my complaint about anything that I do. Or,

Fail. You're gonna get n00b flak for at least another six to twelve months.


PS, only n00bs spell it using the "o" key. :wink:

Started climbing when I was 17 so that´s ----- er 38 years ago an I´m still not very good at it!
Started by direct onto the rope, then some sort of chest harness then a Whillans Sit (ball breaker) harness. Amazing how the gear´s improved - and the start standard of newbies!

7 years. Started a little backwards doing rock climbing first and then decided I liked scrambling and hiking more, as long as there was a summit involved. First ice axe/crampons climb was 4 years ago, and that became my favorite. Still enjoy technical climbing.
