Question Anybody into rockclimbing/bouldering???

Any of you into rockclimbing/bouldering? Where do you climb? What kind of climbing do you prefer?

Post pics if you have them.

Here's a pic of me bouldering at an indoor gym in Stamford, CT called "Go Veritcal."

No bouldering or rock, other than some low class four scrambling.

I'm really into general mountaineering stuff, though...you know, glacier travel, mixed snow/ice/rock. Done a few of the volcanoes around here, including Rainier and Adams. Rainier is awesome.

Having climbing and motorcycling for hobbies definitely sucks ass, though. It sucks to be out in the mountains on a nice day thinking about twisty Hwy 101 on the Hood Canal. Or riding around a bend and seeing big-ass Rainier inviting you to come up.

It doesn't have to be fun to be "fun".

Is it wrong to keep my chalk bag and climbing shoes in the storage compartment of my bike??? LOL I can't tell you how many times I've been riding in upstate New York and spotted a boulder near the roadway that just HAD to be climbed! The only drawback is that if you climb too long your hands/forearms get pumped and it's tough to ride your bike after that.

You would look pretty cool plastered to the roadside crag with rock shoes and full leathers.

loving the rocks and mountains. since i've sold the truck and only have my bike, it's almost impossible to make it joshua tree. i'm not sure if they're done repaving the roads yet or not, but the r1 wouldn't do too well on the dirt roads there.

i've built a little climbing wall in my backyard which consists of a 10 foot pallet covered with holds. it's not that long, but very good for 1 or 2 good moves. just have to imagine your self haging off a longggggg drop to get the feel ya know. don't own the home, but when i do, i'll have a climbing wall all inside my garage. have envisions the time when the whole garage will be filled with holds and overhangs. till then, i'll continue climing buildings and chimney's around my area...
