Anyone else out there jump? It's a pretty good sport for a climber to get into. Different in many ways than climbing, but still quite fun.

My Wife has a C- License and I have D-License. Even though we loads of jumps and no kids, $30 a pop,but after 3-5 jumps each on a Saturday really adds up to an expensive weekend, and we own all the gear any skydiver could ever want.

You are right however, loads of fun, just $60 for the both of us is too spendy for our blood. We like climbing in Moab/World and BASE jumping.

Hank sold me my first rig. I jump several times a year but not nearly as much as I would like. It was some BASE jumpers jumping over our heads on El Cap that got me into it.

Yea, it is expensive. Lose a cam? There goes $60. Cutaway your main and cant find it? Mind as well have thrown 30 Benjamins out the plane with you on that jump.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
