comment How can I improve my footwork while rock-climbing?
Thanks for the "quiet-feet" suggestion, I hadn't heard of that one before. I was fortunate to borrow some shoe's from my friend that fit exactly right so when I go buy some in the future, I'll know how they should fit now.

Ensenada, Mexico. I checked rockclimbing.com, and there's a climbing area north about 45 minutes away with a few routes, but that's all I know of. I also need equipment if I'm going to do those, so it's bouldering or nothing for me right now. I haven't found any bouldering either, but now that I know what to look for, I may be able to find something climbable.

comment How can I improve my footwork while rock-climbing?
That's great. Thanks for the link and the tips. Now that I remember it, my friend who got me into rock climbing told me all those things, but, being the noob that I am and due to limited time, I wanted to go straight for vertical stuff instead of practice technique. I don't live near any good rock climbing but would like to practice/exercise for when I do go. I have some fairly steep hills around (45 degree incline or more), so I'm wondering if those might be good to practice on in the mean time?

comment How to heal “blown tips” faster after a climb?
Thanks for this. The other answer is great (don't worry guys, I'm taking your advice!), but this answer is more complete.

comment What should I look for in a rope for climbing?
I added a bit of an edit to quote what I thought was a good summary of the REI page. That page is great and is just what I was looking for.

@DavidR, I'm definitely interested in doing things the right way and taking care to avoid injury/damage. I'm taking you guys advice as well (partly because I don't live near any good climbing). I will take the time to let them heal comletely before climbing again. I didn't think about losing feeling in the fingertips. I'll be sure to take care then not to let that happen.

By the way, thanks for linking that question about beginner equipment. It's a great start. They don't mention anything about ropes, though. The two questions about rope diameter and fall ratings are really good as well. I was mainly asking because there's still a lot of variation between ropes. I want a good, solid rope but don't want to spend for features I'll never need.

Well, I'm not that far gone yet ;) I don't live near any good climbing, so when I get to go somewhere that does have it, I try to make the most of the time I have. I guess it'll just take time to build up the toughness in my fingertips. It's worth noting, this isn't muscle/tendon related. I tore up the skin on my fingertips on some rough rock.
