      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      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!

Squamish Bouldering - on my own, ok ?( friendly? )

Recommended Posts

Heading to Squamish in a few hours. I am thinking of bouldering on my own, but wondering how it would be to go to one of the bouldering areas on my own. I have never bouldered outside before, have a pad though ( Level indoors comfortable V1, V2's can do, but not as well).

 

But, are people there friendly and I could get a spot if needed and so forth? I only have one pad, and not sure if that is enough anyway.

For the most part people are friendly and if you're outgoing you should be able to get a spot or work the same problem as other people. One pad is fine and there are tons of low problems. A lot of the high star rating problems are high-balls but get on some 1 star routes if they look fun and safe.

 

I don't know about the grades at your gym but you might want to start off with some V0- or V0 to get you started. Squamish grades are on the hard side for me.
