      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Port Angeles winter training/climbing community?

Recommended Posts

Hey All! I'm moving to the PA area this January and, of course, upon receiving the job offer, ferociously googled local climb-ability. I realize that it's winter so (dry rock) trips outdoors on the weekends are a no go for the time being and it seems like there aren't any gyms in the area. I lack the resources to invest in ice gear this winter and I'll be living in communal/rented housing thus don't have a great opportunity to build a woody. I'm psyched to be in the region for so many reasons and know that there is plenty of recreating to be done BUT worried about lack of local gym/climbing community. 
For those of you who live on the Olympic peninsula - what's it like? What do you do for training in the winter months (if you're not ice climbing)? maybe you would share your woodies and/or friendship with me?
Thanks for any input!

The Olympics lack good rock, which you've probably figured out by now.  But, there is a lot of country to explore and it is a lot quieter on that side of the Sound.  Personally, I like PA (though never lived there).
