CLIMBERPOST.COM is a group of every day climbers who aren’t sending 5.14′s or pushing cutting edge Alpinism. We climb because we like it and we share it because we can. This is our journal, these are our thoughts, and these are our journeys.
My name is Brooke and I have been climbing on and off for 2 years. I started climbing in Utah (what better place to start climbing) and have picked it up again trying to go at least 2-3 times a week and have made incredible progress climbing steady at 5-8/5-9 and can do a 5-10 once in a while. I am also currently training for my first half marathon that I will run in about a month. Training for this half marathon has been an interesting experience, but after this half marathon, I want to focus my exercise routine on climbing. There is something about the challenge that excites me and doing something that is different in a community of other climbers. I still consider myself a novice and want to get better and eventually get into lead climbing. There are two reasons why I write to you today: first, I would like to ask if I can get advice from the contributing writes about training, diet, motivation, etc. that will help me improve. Also the fact that my fear of heights and falling is still lingering. Second, I would love to be a contributing writer. I would love to pose questions that any first time climber would ask. I think having that a part of your blog may be interesting, and would be happy to contribute. It would be an honor to be a part of this blog.
Thank you for your blog and your time reading my comment. I look forward to hearing from you!
