I mostly agree but do ROCK climbers really wake up that early to go climb....?

Heck, I've gotten up that early to climb at smith. But yeah, 6am is a common Start Time to beat heat and crowds in yosemite.

Lately on the Front Range it's been necessary to beat out the afternoon storms we've been getting. Every damn day for weeks now.. I hardly even knew 6am existed until it became the only time i could climb.

Right? If you aren't starting 18 hours ahead of the 6am crew, you're last in line.
