    I climb regularly for nearly six years now. Met my GF through the hobby, we go to the gym together.
    I strongly recommend you to go with someone experienced or hire a coach for your first few times. They'll show you correct form, movement technique, answer beginner questions, can do the route you're struggling with so you have an example, etc.

    great workout tho, difficult and fun, been doing it for years - just make sure to train your antagonists as well otherwise you turn into a hunchback
    also: learn and practice good technique from the get-go, don't be afraid to watch others to learn from them and ask them what you're doing wrong; additionally your tendons DO NOT get stronger at the same rate as muscles, it takes atleast 1-2 years for them to develop somewhat so don't overdo it and get injured

    It's fucking amazing. Had soreness like you wouldn't believe the day after in all my muscle groups when I went the first time. It works your entire body like crazy and gives you an amazing sense of accomplishment when you beat a course. Definitely will go back and try to work my way up the harder climbs. Just make sure you learn how to land right when falling from super high up. Landed the wrong way on my hand the first time and it fucked up my joints a bit.

    See if you can find a bouldering gym that also has weight equipment. The one I go to has barbells, free weights, and a bunch of other stuff like rings and hoops. You can probably make it your main gym in that case, or use it to supplement your workouts at the regular gym.

    Former fat fuck here, started climbing 6/7 years ago. Lost a lot of weight and at the same time gained lots of muscle. If possible try climbing as well, more moves that are overall easier, it's more of a cardio training if done right.

    M/F ratio is decent, people are up for a talk most of the time.

    Bouldering is very similar to pure strength training, short period of maximum effort followed by 3-5 minutes of rest, with the added benefit of different movement and problem solving. If you like lifting you'll enjoy bouldering.

    Just be careful take a lot of time to recover after each session, tendons recover and build up pretty slowly and it's easy to develop issues in fingers/elbows if you overdo it.

    What is the best way to get into this? I've been struggling with a herniated disc for the past couple of months and have lost pretty much all of my muscle mass in my lower body and my core. My wife and I went climbing with a church group and I found that although I can't stand up for very long, I can climb without pain. I'm terrified of going to the gym and fucking up my back even more. I was thinking about going three days a week like I would with a gym membership but everything I've been reading says that's a bad idea. Should I just go once or twice a week and do all the V0 and V1s I see? Pic related

      If you are doing rope climbing the main risk to your back would be unintended falls where you have to catch the wall with your legs. With bouldering it would be falling or jumping from the top of the boulder, but you can always climb down. Other things that might aggravate back issues are overhangs (lots of core tension), high feet moves that require hip mobility, maybe heel hooks if you have sciatia.

      Overall if you are doing easy climbs where you are in control most of the above shouldn't be applicable, and you can easily back off if somethng doesn't feel right. If you are careful and make sure to always get back to the ground safely you'll probably be fine

        beginners should really focus a lot on downclimbing, especially when they're starting out on easy v0s and v1s which are basically just ladders. There's no need to jump down from the top of a problem; the risk of rolling your ankle is very real and it's fucking gay if it happens.

        Thanks! What would be a good beginner routine? When would you start implementing the hangboard stuff? Honestly I got the bug, but I also play a lot of music and a tendon injury would fuck me up with a lot of obligations I have. I went yesterday and this morning I could barely squeeze my wife's arm. The gym in the picture has a lot of bouldering walls, I will probably stick to that since I'll be going alone.

          Generally it's advised not to do any fingerboarding for the first 1.5-2 years of climbing since your fingers will adapt fine from just climbing. Climbing 2-3 a week is a good start. V6-V7 is when finger strength becomes more important, and reaching that takes a while.

          Avoiding finger injuries is best done by avoiding low percentage moves to shit holds. If you can't static moves to holds you aren't comfortable on, don't do the move.

      Easy way to filter out the pretentious gays is to offer advice on a climb. If they get pissy about it, then good riddance to them.
      Also, in general people who don't look unkempt or malnourished will be decent.

    >anybody here have experience with it?
    Yes, climb with my GF and step-siblings every other weekend.
    >or is it more like cardio?
    Not like cardio, more like calisthenics you use your entire body
    >how do i integrate this into my liftingplan?
    I guess pull-ups, calf raises, squats and planks are good.
    >is it a good place to meet fit women?
    YES, we talking yoga level amount of women.

    Does it mess with my gains if I climb on a rest day?
    I went for a trial lesson last week, next day triceps and forearms were killing me and really messed with my lifts.
    It was fun though, and seems like a good place to meet a fit gf. I might pick it up full time

      Yes. If you take climbing seriously, you will 100% get issues with tendons if you lift heavy between climbing sessions.

      No. Don't listen to the idiot above.
      Also, it might be decent for picking up women, but as others have said, most of them seem to have boyfriends, so you just have to figure out who's single.

    i personally love climbing, and it is a great place to meet people. its kind of like cardio and upper body, but if you get really good at it you can incorporate legs. a lot of cute girls, and a tonne of hippies, though gear can be a bit expensive

    Bros what's the best way to approach qt's at a bouldering gym? I was doing a session earlier and me and two girls kept looking at each other but my game is non-existent. My bouldering friends say I should go over and give them advice but I'd look like a twat while struggling to do most V3s.

      Don't give advice but ask for advice. Or just more generally discuss a problem you're both working on.
      >Hey have you tried this problem? I'm not sure how to do X move
      The easiest way to do this is when they happen to be trying the same climb as you. Don't autistically follow them around though.

      Go to a gym that rates softer.

      For real, I climbed my first V5 2 weeks ago. Flashed it, even. It's hard to step up from V4 to V5. I think it's just a matter of building up your finger strength so it just takes time and practice. Also, if you watch someone good climb the route before you try it, you waste less energy on unsuccessful attempts because you at least know what you're trying to do.

        Kek. The gym I go to does rate pretty hard compared to other gyms I've been to. Doesn't change the fact that I've been stuck at the same level for months now.

    Bouldering is fucking sick, I wish I could boulder more but my glass shoulders break.
    It's not like cardio, but it's not like lifting either. What I do is I climb then I use their gym to do benchpresses and other stuff like that. The people there are usually not interested in benching so it's usually free.
    All the women are fit, but they're also very SJW.
    Another interesting thing: no nigs, nigs only appreciate sports if it comes with status, climbing is pure white man kino.
    You're gonna find yourself scaling back on lifting in favour of climbing.
