Did you ever go out with Guy on that one on one. I was thinking about asking if he would help me out, i am interested in this recreational activity but I'm not sure yet if am willing to commit to buying all the gear yet. Thanks let me know...
The weather has not cooperated so I haven't had my instruction yet. The forecast looks good for this Saturaday (3/12/2011) and my son (16 yo) and I (52 yo) will spend somewhere between 5-6 hours of climbing and instruction with Guy this Saturday. We are both pumped and I think Guy is too. My son climbed the rock wall at REI last weekend and he is looking forward to the climb. I like you want to do it before buying any equipment. I will let everyone know how it went. We are meeting at Weldon Springs in St. Charles for the climb.
That sounds really cool. Let us know how it goes. I also saw on meetup.com that Guy was holding an event on Sunday. But unfortunately my work schedule sucks. I work every Saturday and alternating Sundays, and ofcourse i work tomorrow. I will probably contact Guy and ask him about setting up a session with me and some friends. Anyways, have fun and I look forward to hearing your story.
