Hello. I have been climbing for only a few weeks. My first outdoor climb was just this past weekend. What a rush and a sense of accomplishment. I didn't have a climbing partner. The guide and one other person was switching off. I live in the Bay Area, CA. Anyone near want to do some indoor or outdoor climbing Top Rope. Hit me up.

Fred,
Welcome to climbing and MP! Climbing never stops being amazing, just different adventures and challenges.

I would recommend going to your local gym for a membership. Take their belay courses (super cheap compared to a guide), then climb 2-3x/week while meeting other climbers. Follow the advice in the sticky thread above.

Go buy your harness & belay device (Petzl package is great), and non-aggressive shoes from your local retailer as a start.

Happy trails!
