memes and s-o-y jokes aside, is the rock climbing gym actually an autist-proof way to pick up women? Does anyone have experience and can speak to this?

    I went to the rock climbing gym once. There were a bunch of women there but they were all in groups and I felt so awkward and didn't know what to do. So i stayed in an isolated corner and tried a wall with the auto belay. But the rental shoes had no grip and it was really hard to go up. I would go up a few steps and fall right back down. I was kind of scared to go up too high so I did a few steps a few times and gave up and went home. Never went back

      It's okay. Those women know you're just there to climb. You can mess up as much as you want. They aren't paying attention to you. When you walk by them to get to the counter to return your shoes they probably don't even notice and if you walk by them they will forget about it in less than a minute. You did a great job going outside and climbing.

      Yes

      Well at least you tried to climb. I boulder mostly now but if I was still toproping in your position I'd try to find a group of 3+ people who don't look like they're doing anything too serious and ask if you could work in with them. The good part about lifting (I'm assuming you do) is that once you get really comfortable with pullups you can actually forgo a good deal of footwork because you can get anywhere you need to through the power of your biceps.

      i almost never see single women in the climbing gym. aways with their boyfriends or in big groups

      The ones in the big groups tend to be (but not always) single in my experience

      Nobody is judging you, just try again
      If you realize you don't enjoy the activity then stop, it is what it is
      Also interacting with people there is the same as interacting with people everywhere, if you don't display extreme outlier behavior nobody cares - and this does not include being socially awkward, everyone has seen/dealt with awkward people multiple times in their lives and it's just fine

      I spent some time trying to get into the sport. The women there were extremely poor quality. Rock climbing is an activity, maybe even a hobby, but not a sport. It cannot be judged objectively. This why so many losers are drawn to it. It is the embodiment of a safe space.

      Sports develop character, and that's where more quality people will be found.

      >The women there were extremely poor quality
      Are rock climbing gym women supposed to be enlighted goddesses or what? In the gyms around here they are the same average women you see literally everywhere
      I don't even do rock climbing, but
      >It cannot be judged objectively
      Uh, it can? Get some people to go through the same path and whoever does it the fastest wins, there you go
      >Sports develop character
      Agreed
      But you can partake in pretty much all sports competitively or just for fun

      You have a feminine approach to seduction.
      Going to a place/event with the intent to signify your sexual availability, or signal signs of high value skills being possessed is feminine in nature.

      What men actually do, is acquire skills to increase their value without signaling them. Their wealth is quiet and only ever is disclosed in appropriate circumstances, when relevant, and brushed off as logical consequences of discipline and dedication in an area of your own life.

      ''Wow anon, I did not know you could climb trees, thanks for getting the kid's toy back''
      ''Well I rock climb as a hobby'' said in a logical, nonchalant fashion, without looking too invested.
      Anything more than that, and you will look like you're bragging, enjoying too much laurels, and too self-conscious about your image.

      Acquire skills. The women will then come, as naturally they gravitate towards high-skill areas to signify their availability, and scout for potential mates.

      I know I'm a full day late but tips for if you ever do end up going back, on an auto belay climb up like 15 or so feet and let go and drop, it'll help a lot with that scary anticipation feeling of falling to know that it's really got you. Also it's completely normal to start getting sudden shakes once your up the wall a ways if you're not use to the height, so don't let it get in your head and bother you or anything.

      Do you live in the Bay Area? You described exactly my gym. I’m also working on v4-v6 range and I have the exact same thoughts about my gym

      If you want to meet women rock climbing, try bouldering instead. Bouldering tends to be more accessible, so you get a higher number of more casual climbers mixed in with the hardcore boulderers. Lead climbing tends to attract more hardcore hobbyists who aren't necessarily looking for a chat.

      Go to a gym regularly and focus on climbing. Don't be overly cold, but also don't try and put yourself out there to approach women, because you will get yourself labelled as a nuisance, guaranteed.

      Climb until you identify your grade, then spend half your time projecting above that grade. Opportunities will come when you ultimately meet other people (male and female) attempting and failing the same problems. Conversation naturally arises in these situations since people are usually happy to discuss beta when they are struggling to solve a crux move.

      Learn the language as well. Know what people mean by flag, smear, gaston, heel hook, slab, dyno, undercling, crimp, etc. Nothing puts people off more than being acutely aware of a fake.

      Boulderchads reporting in. He knows what he’s talking about. When you bills these skills, you can make friends in any gym, join whatever groups you want, and you become more approachable in other aspects of life. Plus fingerblasting hoes gets easier.

      By the time you hear that "X activity is a great place to meet women," you're 5 years too late. This is especially true for athletic activities, because fit women don't stay single long. If you join a running or cycling group, most women will be married or have boyfriends.

        Opinion disregarded. I'm just stating it like it is. You are approaching sexual courtship from a feminine perspective.
        You should work on developing your wealth of skills and intangible capitals. I am trying to give you an insight on why your approach may be fruitless so far.

        going to a rock climbing gym signifies wealth since they're all like $135 a month memberships

        It's true. Financial stability is a good trait to display and it's best done in an indirect fashion. Like having memberships to experience-based venues. It speaks more so than displaying commodities such as clothes, cars, or tech items.
        Ideally you want to display smart money. Instead of flashing the car keys, you should let the membership cards, the plane tickets, the business cards do the talking.

        To see it from their perspective imagine if someone came into your gym, said hes never lifted before, deadlifts 3 plates and says "eh, if i work on my form an grip i might be able to 4pl8". I get it and i definitely didnt have to work out as much to get to that same point as they did. However ive definitely had to change my workout routine to more calisthenics an body weight stuff to round out my strengths.

      I've never gotten any passive-aggressive comments in mine (5'9 175). Maybe the people that do that just avoid me outright. I usually outlift everyone else the times that I go, and I've had a couple of guys recognize me on the walls and tell me that my 4pl8 deadlift (with 10 mins rest between sets like a true powershitter) inspired them to lift more weight

      Imo it's a failing of difficulty being graded along a single dimension. Like there are dynos where I can launch myself with my lats like the world's fattest flying squirrel, and there are positions where you have to hold with 3 fingers total across both hands and I feel every pound of my bodyweight. Compared to say my 90 lb friend who can easily do the latter but might not have the reach to do the former. In lifting at least you have weight classes/Wilks and different variations of lifts for more fair comparisons across different sizes/bodytypes. My gf learned deadlift form for the first time and then basically the next day showed up and pulled 2 plates off the ground. But I also have a fat gf

      As for women, they usually climb with boyfriend or orbiter(s). But there are so many women there that if that’s your goal it’s no problem to find one, also icebreakers are ridiculously easy because you can just sit down next to the wall they’re doing and climb with them. It’s not considered weird or intrusive at all. I have ~2-10 people initiate convo with me every time I climb. They’ll ask for tips, then you just climb with them for an hour or two.

      General rule for talking to strangers is that if you want to make friends, get to the point where you're meeting your friends' other friends. Then apply this rule to the women you meet who either have bfs or you're just not into

      Climbers can be obnoxious sure, but not as obnoxious as those seething anti-climbing people, they frequently pop up on IST too. What the fuck is that about?

      what would it imply about the relative size of other climbing gyms if your first statement is that yours is the biggest in the world?
      are all germans this retarded?

      There are more onions compared to other sports or forms of fitness, but there are cool climbers as well. Just stay away from the ones that are clearly orbiters or seem desperate to socialize.

      Can you please elaborate? What's so "onions" about climbing?

      That's interesting, the only climbers I know are absurdly social and easy to talk to.

    It's a pretty easy environment to talk to women at. Like if a girl makes a v4+ climb, it's pretty natural to tell her good job or something, and get into a conversation. It does take some social skill though to pivot that into flirting, but if you lack social skillz u weren't gonna get laid regardless of location anyway.

    The only downside is it does take a bit of money and skill to get into. Gyms cost like 100$ a month here, and ull want rock climbing shoes. I hated starting to climb and getting mogged by women since im used to being among the strongest at lifting gyms.

    fuck no dude, there's so single women going rock climbing that are any good at it. No girl will be impressedd that you can climb, and no girl will be willing/able to belay for you as a cutesy sorta move. Only go rock climbing to have fun or if you have a SO you're bringing along.

    No.

    Nobody that actually gets laid a lot with attractive women "picks up" women. You get pussy by being one of the coolest guys in a mixed group which includes lots of attractive single women.

    Hitting on strangers self-selects for damaged women, which is why it has a dismal 1% success rate on average (2% before half of those same women went on Tinder when they got sad & lonely).

    So where does a person actually go to meet women? Every time someone mentions "oh go to climbing/dance/cooking/yoga" somebody chimes in that for the most part these women are taken, attend with their SO or are actually a sausage fest because of guys trying to meet any women at all. You could chalk this up to IST negativity, but it holds up to reality as well. It just seems no matter what we do, men are going to struggle a ton to meet women in this day and age outside of forced social interaction like school since work is no longer an option and male friend groups increasingly don't interact with any women at all or know any to begin with.

      Have you actually gone to check, or are you taking it on faith on someone reporting it anonymously to you on the internet?

        I've been to a few places and classes like that (BJJ, cooking, foreign language, dance) and it really does hold true. Women don't need to put in effort to meet men and most have no real hobbies, so the population of these classes skews male. Female dominated classes like yoga aren't great either since on some level you get the feeling of intruding on a feminine hobby and social space from the girls.

          Well this is the mentality that keeps you from surrounding yourself with women isn't it?

      It’s kind of like when women go to the beach or club with male friends. The male friends are definitely there to bang the girls but then the girls go off to other men. I mean not really you’re not going to bang every girl that talks to you. But say, yesterday, I work at the climbing gym I climb at so everyone always asks me for tips on a climb off or on duty. So I was climbing by myself and some girl I’ve seen a few times comes up and starts chatting, introduces me to her orbiter and another girl, they ask me if I’ve climbed “that one” which was a v5 I’d say the equivalent of hitting 2pl8 bench or atleast almost, most people should hit it within 6 months of consistent lifting/climbing. Anyways. I say, yeah but you’re not going to like how I did it (campus, which means only hands) she dares me to do it again, I oblige and after doing it, her friend says “-name- has some jars at home for you to open for her later) and she goes beet red and tells her I have a gf.

      Pretty gay to share an anecdote like that but trust me, if you’re good at climbing and approachable girls will talk to you every single day. It’s super easy to just ask them to climb together, set up a date etc. for my current gf she met me there actually, I told her we can climb together the day after tomorrow and have dinner after. All it took was that one date.

      You have to become a PUA and try not to go insane in the process (as many of them did). And know when to quit when you're ahead.

        Problem with doing yoga aswell is women are immediately associating you with being a gay or a creep. Spinning would probably be better and just say you’re practicing for a long ass bike trip and they might even be impressed

          I do yoga and have received neither of these. The trick is you're supposed to chat them up after class, not during. I even have a legit reason (tweaked my back last week and want to work on my flexibility to prevent it from happening again) but nobody outside my friend who also takes the class gives a shit about that

      You meet women through having a broad social circle. You broaden your social circle by making connections at hobbies like this.

    Rock climbing gyms are literally the worst place to pick up women. Also, flaunting your skill requires you to drink the Kool aid deep to get there. You're better off spending that time lifting and learning to dance. Which is a far more socially acceptable skill, has more value in life in terms of socialization, the quality and pool of women who can and are interested in is way higher, is cardio which keeps you lean, and is as blunt a vertical representation of a horizontal intention as humanly possible.

    Rock climbing also is basically a cult. If you're always on the fringe you're not going to get far, but if you want to get far, you have to become consumed by it. It becomes your way of life. You lift to climb. You eat to climb. In your spare time you watch climbing videos. You plan your weekends to climb. You plan your vacations to climb. You get excited by climbing and Olympics. You can't start neglecting your social circles if they aren't into climbing as you.

    I've personally witnessed someone who's gone from a somewhat normal and socially person to becoming a climbing autist. Doesn't want to go out, doesn't want to do anything in large groups anymore UNLESS it involves climbing. Even when he's injured, the one thing on his mind is that he wishes he'd heal faster so he can get back on the climbing wall.

    The obsession is disconcerting.

        Don't do social dancing - things like salsa and bachata are not filled with qts. Instead, they are full of thoroughly unimpressive middle-aged women, incels who got memed into it, and qts who are sleeping with the instructor. Go for contemporary or hip hop, because while their will be qts sleeping with the instructor, the average age starts with a 2 instead of a 4.

    >wrap around her while clinging to the wall
    >use your climbing shoes to pull her pants and panties off

    usually its so noisy in there people wont notice for a while, and once they do its one hell of a battle to save her anyway
    If some whiteknight tries climbing up to save her, just kick at his hands and he'll have no way to get to you

    I've gone to a rockclimbing gym and holy fuck it's like a liberal hell. What's up with liberals and overtly looking pink haired SJW twitter thots to go rock climbing? Is it because it's significantly more expensive than a regular gym so it's considered a "status symbol"? Clearly it's not about exercise because none of the girls there even put the minimal effort to get a workout done lmao
