long story short, don't trust any climber under the age of 45





unless it's like alex honnold or someone of that caliber

I disagree, but I am only 27. Personaly there are a lot of climbers under 45 I would trust before honnold. You have to have the same risk tolerance to really feel comfortable climbing with someone.

Also someone mentioned youtube videos, some of those are a little suspect, but most are good. I like the videos on this site. http://www.climbinglife.com/rocks/instructional-videos

I find it really hard to trust new partners even belaying in the gym, I don't feel that I can push my limits or even think of falling off without getting quite nervous...I have about a dozen or so buddies whom I can totally trust to hold my rope, it`s a difficult decision when climbing with someone you can`t 100% trust.
