A Conversation for Rock Climbing
Is mise Duncan Started conversation Dec 8, 1999
Is not the climbing of rocks at all, or it would be quite easy.
Its when they get to boulder or worse, mountain size that I have problems.

Rock climbing is known as such because most of the venues that it is associated with ars made of rock (ie. cliffs,crags,outcrops, mountains.) What is it known as when the composition of the venue is not rock? There are those who climb buildings, trees and alsorts of other veritiginouse occurences, what the is the appropriate name for both the activity and the exponent of such activity?
Houseclimber, poleclimber, condoclimber, pylonclimber?
Please let me Know what you think.

Being a bit of a wimp, I prefer the indoor stuff...
There are very good indoor climbing centres in Birmingham (England) and Sheffield, but the only semi-decent one in Dublin is in UCD and it is difficult to get a go on if you're not a student.
It's odd that tree climbing isn't an olympic sport - I used to excel at that
