I've never really done much ... but I did put a bunch of holds and jugs and jibs and stuff on this span over my hot tub to use as a jungle gym.  There's a static rope behind the beam that you can clip a Mexican to and hang if you're wearing a harness, it's been kinda fun.  I've got some hanging holds and more jugs underneat the actual upper deck I put up since I took this photo. 
 
 
Edit: apparently TS thinks "Mexican" is shorthand for "carabiner"

This summer I've gone to Yosemite on 2 separate occasions.
Here's a few pics of the shenanigans we did.

This first pic was of day 1, after we got our campsite at Camp 4 we decided... around 11am to climb Royal Arches. Royal Arches is about 1500ft tall and I think was about 10 pitches for us to do.
We did it, rapped back down and had our feet on the ground by 10pm.


This next pic was at the top of a climb (not technically the top, but the rest of the climb isn't as cool) called Central Pillar of Frenzy.
We got quite the view from the top. We actually spotted over 5 parties on El Capitan.


This next pic I took while following my partner on West Crack up in Tuolumne. I got to this piece of gear, laughed so hard and had him hold me while I took this pic. (for the non climber folk, it's a #6 Black Diamond Camalot, it's used for the occasional climbing protection, but mainly for fending off bears back at camp. LoL)

That looks incredible. Ive hiked some mountains in the Adirondacks but I would love to actually climb something so that the view from the top would be even more incredible just because of how hard it would be.

I dug up a couple more pictures...
First one is my buddy leading a route called "Flower of High Rank"
the "flower" is the tree growing out of the middle of the route.
It's a pretty spectacular route.

next is a pic of me looking down while my gf is climbing up a route at Tahquitz.


and last is a pic of my buddy's dog. I was sitting in the spot where he usually likes to sleep, so he was trying to catch some Zzz's as best as he could. It warranted a picture.

daaaang, that looked like some good times at yos!

and the deck picture was pretty cool too!  how did you attach those holds?  are they screwed into the wood?  has any ever ripped out on you?

i've always wanted to start climbing...  but i feel like there's such a learning curve to it, and that the learning curve is just as steep as the amount of death potential is just as steep...  for that reason, i haven't seem to get past bouldering...  any tips about a new climber?

I'm not sure where you live but in the Denver area there are several rock climbing training classes you can sign up for. REI usually has one about once a month. I'd recommend taking a class to get the basics down.

An REI class is good...
I recommend getting friends (who are competent and safe and whom you trust) to take you out climbing. Someone you know climbs a lot outside.

Start out easy and work your way up from there, endurance takes time, tendon strength takes time. Don't rush things or you'll pay for it with an injury (everyone's done it, you probably will too... it's just a learning process to learn your limits as you progress)

Yep, rock climb indoors though.. going outdoors would be great but access is tough.
Mostly boulder and top rope every so often.. would like to lead climb but need to find some people who have gear and are looking for a lead partner.

Been outdoors a couple of times and bouldered during both. It was a lot of fun, but also a lot more tougher than doing it in the gym.

Currently climbing around 5.10a-c? or around V4 at my local gym I go to.

I boulder a ton indoors, and climb outside when I get the chance. I'm still working on getting out of the 5.11 range but bouldering doesn't really help endurance when it comes to rope climbing Confused.

As an engineer I am still skeptical about cams in general, and am not the biggest fan of trad climbing because of that LOL

You know I felt the same way... How can this piece of aluminum save my life if I take a screamer...
Well they can... I've seen it.
Had a friend take a factor 1 fall about 5 ft off the deck... small alien cam held... for each of his 4 falls. LoL

2 things either you're not a very good engineer =p
or you're right the cam is just a lucky piece of equipment.

agreed, bouldering doesn't help with endurance. but if you traverse it keeps you on the wall longer and really works your technique to use less energy to climb longer.

kinda wish i knew how many feet i'm climbing

Haha yea, it's really all about placement. Still not the biggest fan trusting my life to a metal hinge but I think I just need to get more comfortable with it. Maybe set up an anchor and jump off some cliffs

balance and technique trumps grip strength most of the time... until you start climbing the hard stuff you shouldn't need to worry about the number of pullups you can do.

Bouldering... Yoga... don't worry about being in shape or not...
Nobody cares, everyone's got to start somewhere.
Besides... the first few weeks/months have the greatest return on investment in terms of improving your climbing ability.

I need to get back into this. Got hooked when a friend took us around Yosemite to shows us the basics. Started to get into it but when you have other expensive, time-consuming hobbies something has to give.

@Witty1 - Nice pics. I'm in YNP every year. We do mostly hiking & family stuff but I take the kids to go bouldering etc. Mostly around Camp 4 since the kids love the slacklines. I have pics. But finding them is the trouble.

@odoyale (& Witty1) - I hear you on that trust issue. Just when i started getting into the sport a guy I knew loses his life up at Tahquitz. That kind of spelled the begining of the end of my climbing career once the wif found out. Everything sort of dwindled after that.

this reply button sucks.. i thought it would quote the post but anywho..

I would have to say practice and practice for balance, learn technique from someone who has a little more experience than you, it helps. sometimes that one little technique will help you complete the route or problem you've been working on for such a long time.. 
there does come a time where you do need the crimp strength and arm strength, But a lot of climbing is done through the LEGS!

Climbing is done mostly through the legs sounds a bit weird, but I guess I'll find out the next time I see a groupon for indoor climbing.  LOL  I saw a video of little kids doing it and wow, it's crazy how they flip around and upside down.  Shocked

Use your legs!  So this helped a lot for me where if I needed to move up on the wall, I would push up using my legs and not use my arms to pull my body weight up.   Once I started doing that, it was a lot easier to climb since you're used to your legs supporting your body weight and you don't get tired as quickly

Oh speaking of little kids, did you guys see this:

Tiny Hand Over Hand: Ashima Shiraishi, 11, Conquers Difficult Bouldering Climbs

There's a video of her if you click through. It's crazy how good she is!

I used to climb more when I was about 12-14, then didn't do it for a while and did it again in college and I realized how much easier it was back when I was little. I miss those days. Haven't gone in a pretty long time now. I'll have to see if there's a place near me to go :)

slowly going less often to the gym..losing interest, maybe it's cause I suck? hahaha

hope you have an awesome time!
remember to bring snacks and drinks, maybe some insect repellent too.
I still remember the first time I went out. A lot of hiking with your gear and then the first accent SO different from indoors.. routes/problems aren't visibly marked with bright tape or coloured holds, quite difficult vs gym graded climbs, and a lot of "slimy" rocks, real slippery from all the rubber soles stepping on em.. I guess a good wire brush would help with that too. Still so much fun

^ Yea you really gotta make sure you can either see where the holds are, or if you aren't leading, take note of the leaders beta. Good luck, and make sure you got all your equipment when you come down (I hate leaving stuff behind)

^ thread does say Rock climbing.
not tree climbing. But I would count it! It has pretty much the same fundamentals.

I hit the indoor gym sometime last week and tried to climb a new unmarked/graded route and I tweaked my right shoulder.. I popped onto a round sloper.  Double handed it and my right shoulder popped.. I held on and tried to pull up hoping for the shoulder to pop back in place.. Didn't happen, damn foot chips were so small I could just feel my feet slipping.  Needless to say I didn't not send it. A day or two after my should was damn sore...Hurts to scratch my ass
hopefully it'll heal in a couple more days. I gotta get active.
I rubbed on some Voltern or whatever its called the other day, I was surprised at how it helped to cut down on the pain. I don't think it helps heal it or anything though.

just got back from the reel rock 7 tour in sf and that thing was amazing! especially the segment on conrad conquering that one crevice of the shark's fin...i feel that was probably the best of the 4 w/ alex at a close second (no offense to him, didn't feel it was as heartfelt)

I'm kind of glad I made a note here on when i injured my shoulder.. i thought I messed it up on Oct. 1.. but turns out it was before Sept 24.
Holy crap that was a long time ago.. 2 months now! Should still isn't fully healed ) =
But it was feeling  pretty good and I went on Tuesday, I think I climbed too hard or something because my shoulder doesn't feel right anymore, keeps cracking/popping arghhh
healin so slow now.
