Route ratings that are absurdly inflated. I don't hate this so much as find it irritating that people claim to be a 5.10 climber but flail hopelessly when I take them outside on a 5.6. Scott O

Not a fan of dubstep myself, and I've given quite a lot of it a listen. I prefer techno or EBM in the climbing gym, ja.

I hate that the gyms delude me into thinking I can send any 5.12 that I get on outside. So cruel. Dangerous too, I might end up on Southern Belle and eff up both of my legs. Alan Doak

Gyms suck all around! If I cant climb outside, I dont want to climb indoors because its a gym and there is always a bunch of gumby idiots, bad music and horribly set routes that makes me wish I would have just went straight to the bar and spent my day pass fees on an extra couple of beers! If you dont live anywhere near real rock, I can see enjoying a gym...but to someone that lives 30 minutes from over 2000 boulder routes and hundreds of roped routes, its like masturbating to a porn while a hot chick is naked, ready and willing right in front of you!!!

But what if you're both masturbating? That sounds fun! I like the gym now...

The dude that runs it is kinda mean. He doesn't seem to like people. And then also, I would climb outside, but I don't know who to climb with.. And plus, the nearest place to climb is like 45+ minutes away. Matt R
