    Woohoo!  Just donated to the Honnold Foundation (fights impacts of climate change) for a chance to climb at Yosemite with Alex Honnold!
    Woohoo indeed! That would be amazing. I’m guessing Canadians aren’t eligible but I’ll check out the foundation anyway, as I’ve been meaning to do since seeing Free Solo. 

    You'll be using ropes though, right? ;)

    I climbed next to him once at my climbing gym.
    Once I realized who it was I just sat and watched.

    Good luck
    I would just watch, too.

    Just checked and it is international, so I entered, too.

    Good luck to us both ;)

    Rgambs, I think you’ve said that you mostly climb outside. Do you have a gym, too? 

    Bentleyspop, which gym do you climb at? 

    And do you guys mostly boulder, top rope or lead?  I’m doing about 50/50 bouldering and top roping right now. I used to lead and then changed gyms and haven’t yet gotten back in with a regular group of belay partners who want to lead. I think I might just retake the lead course to brush up.

    No gym, I top rope with a static rappel rope lol 
    There's only one decent wall near me, an hour away.  I used to go a few times a year and do a couple easy routes.  It's been a few years, I could barely send a 5.8 last time I went, but I'm 40 lbs lighter and much stronger now.

    I actually don't currently climb due to injury.
    My local gym was Movement in Boulder.

    I used to mix it up. Mostly top rope, some lead, and some bouldering.

    Oh, damn - sorry to hear you’re injured. I hope you get back at it in due course. They looks like a good gym. I’d like to take that Power-Endurance course myself.

    "says a draft management plan from the territorial government that contradicts much of conventional scientific thinking."

    That should give you your answer right there.
