Title: Re: New Members... Say HELLO!
Post by: M@T on November 02, 2005, 01:15:44 PM
I think its more like, there is no water so lets go climb.
Title: Re: New Members... Say HELLO!
Post by: Random Dave on November 02, 2005, 01:58:13 PM
yeah, climbing is definately my backup option for when there's no rain (and for when I blindly paddle into box canynons and realise that I can't paddle out again).
Title: Re: New Members... Say HELLO!
Post by: Ali* on November 03, 2005, 11:07:47 AM
defintaly my second choice, all depends on the weather as said above but i do enjoy climbing im sorry paddling takes major 1st place

Title: Re: New Members... Say HELLO!
Post by: Fat Alan on November 03, 2005, 03:50:44 PM
have you ever tried padding with a lead rack? or climbing with a canoe? i'd say it matters a lot!
Title: Re: New Members... Say HELLO!
Post by: nick on November 03, 2005, 03:59:45 PM
you'd need quite a big crack to place a canoe
Title: Re: New Members... Say HELLO!
Post by: Norm on November 03, 2005, 04:02:13 PM
And quite cold water to use the lead rack!
Title: Re: New Members... Say HELLO!
Post by: Ali* on November 03, 2005, 05:22:18 PM
what you can do is go down a white water river find a gorge, then an eddie tie your canoe onto the rocks climb up then pull your canoe up, think it should be an option for maybe a joint trip etc

I've had to belay a canoe as it down climbed a 90m scree slope this summer.
(http://www.kayakstan.net/dispatches/song_kul17.jpg)

Come to think of it, I climbed up there with it in the first place, wearing a spraydeck.

could you not ride it down that slope :-)
Title: Re: New Members... Say HELLO!
Post by: Ali* on November 04, 2005, 09:52:07 AM
well you could, but i dont think i would like too to many rocks to get holes and scrtaches which would not be very fun or good
Title: Re: New Members... Say HELLO!
Post by: Random Dave on November 04, 2005, 12:58:13 PM

I only use the cleverest canoes.

Sliding down that slope would have been fun, but would have involved death.  One guy almost terminated himself just climbing down.

hi guys!  quite a few of you guys met me, and im not so much a fresher or a new member as a temporary member turned hanger on! but i just had to restart the whole kayak/climb argument: i was a kayak person first, then a climber.  went on both kayak trips, but only turned up to climbing if i felt like it!  ha.

just in case youre not sure who i am - im the one who got carried out of roots for 'aquatic' sams birthday pub crawl... ring any bells?

But seeing as its started...  :D..... If the canoeing club is so good then why do they all turn up to our pub crawls instead of going to their own.

I agree, I didnt think there was an arguement.

Whats wrong with doing both?? If I had the time I would, I think its a bit petty of people to think that one is better than the other when they are both completely different!

Well Hello then!

Im a Norwegian student most likely (depending on the exams results) comming to UniS during the spring term '07.
I enjoy climbing altho my body looks like a water droop. (trying to do something with that).

Does anyone have any pictures of the vertex, can't seem to find any at the UniSPORT web page..

Ohh and Im a scout so im used to the outdoors life. Aged 27 (uh old man)
Title: Re: New Members... Say HELLO!
Post by: Fat Alan on May 31, 2006, 12:14:03 PM
27's not old - well i hope not anyway as i'm heading that way soon...

if you're climbing in guildford you'll probably go to Craggy Island more than the Vertex (craggy is a much better wall). Craggy isn't on campus tho :( There should be pics on the craggy website...

Title: Re: New Members... Say HELLO!
Post by: kryten on May 31, 2006, 12:24:19 PM
I've seen that on but I want to see the vertex as well. Im a novice climber and dont have any equiptment (yet) so I'll prob by it when Im comming over to Uni

And i dont have a large budget so I tink I'll stick to vertex at the beginning
Title: Re: New Members... Say HELLO!
Post by: vixter on May 31, 2006, 05:59:19 PM
Fair one, the vertex is ok if cheap is what your after, you could try and email UniSport and ask them to email you some pics, im sure they have plenty :-)
Title: Re: New Members... Say HELLO!
Post by: kryten on June 01, 2006, 01:01:24 PM
Yay i just got i confirmed that im going to UniS. It will be in the spring of 2007 but i have a lot look forward to if i get both the USSU and this BB correctly.

Lucky me that I've got a summer job so i can save up as much as possible
Title: Re: New Members... Say HELLO!
Post by: kryten on December 12, 2006, 10:52:10 AM
Well I got the final verdict and the modules Im taking in Norway dosent match up to the ones at UniS BUHU (for me anyways)

So im not comming to Guildford (to study) maybe Im taking a weekend trip to see what im missing

hi, was hoping to try some bouldering at some point over the next few weeks as a novice. do i need to join the club first or can i just turn up?
Title: Re: New Members... Say HELLO!
Post by: nic elf on January 15, 2007, 08:48:59 PM
hiya jesse - you need to be signed in by an experienced climber at the vertex the first time at least. After this you can come along as you like. tomorrow (tuesday) is the night the club meets at the Vertex. People go along from 6pm-8pm usually then to Roots. On a club night you can tell the people at the desk you are new and they will probably let you in without being signed in by someone else, if not just ask to come upstairs and grab one of us from the wall to sign you in and show you whats what. Happy climbing!
Title: Re: New Members... Say HELLO!
Post by: Chris K on January 15, 2007, 08:51:37 PM
Unless you have a gold card/other card. In which case just swipe as if to the gym and walk upstairs.
Title: Re: New Members... Say HELLO!
Post by: nic elf on January 15, 2007, 09:05:27 PM
as a novice you should still sign in  - probably an insurance thing to save the uni and help you if you have an accident and want to claim.
Title: Re: New Members... Say HELLO!
Post by: nic elf on January 15, 2007, 09:21:35 PM
ok - looks like things have changed whilst I was away. all the unisport website says now is:

 Beginners/Novices: The Vertex policy is to actively encourage new climbers. However, beginners or inexperienced climbers must be signed in by an experienced climber, using our Supervisor Form.

we used to be asked what competency level (i.e. can you belay etc) - have amended the above post.

Im a physicist living off campus with Timmy and Dan. Did a foundation year so 1st year of degree, 2nd year of uni.

I started climbing a few weeks back and have really got into it - just paid my club membership fee so I'm commited now!

I will probably be down at the vertex tuesday evening when I should really be studying....although  can't wait 'til I'm good enough to start climbing outdoors!

Department of engineering of all things.

You wouldn't have guessed it tho.

I wouldn't rele call it a 'degree' as such...mainly 'cos you don't actually have to do any work for it.

Unlike those of us who have sadistic lecturers who rub their hands with glee before setting horendous coursework with no time to do it.

Rich is just jealous cus I get to have fun, 

 I say work to live, not live to work!! I thought that was what uni was all about?!?

It?s a good course tho, we do work closely with the engineers to help/steal there ideas then turn them into a projects, well that?s the plan anyway

its more of a thinking outside of the box degree than being forced to sit down and write essays, the way it should be!!

Post by: crazedclown11 on June 17, 2008, 10:54:33 PM
so....... technically, i'm not a new member..... yet at least...... i am however an aspiring new member. i got accepted into the MSc environmental psych program so i'll be coming to surrey in september. i've been a fairly active climber and love it, and fully intend to join USMC when i get there.

but this is where i introduce a new fun part of this post. i'm from the US and am having somewhat of a difficult time getting the real sense of surrey, ya know, not being able to actually see it, and not having communication with anyone not prejudiced to, and employed by, the university. so this is where i need help. as fellow people of similar interest (at least one for sure) im looking to you to give me any kind of impressions you may think that would be relevant (imagine you're coming to surrey for the first time, what are all the cool/interesting/secret things that you wish you would have known). i think this is slightly less creepy, and probably more appropriate, than randomly messaging people on facebook or something (which i considered doing).  so anything is free game: girls/guy issues, things to do, places to eat, where to live (this is actually something i really need help with, as i dont quite understand the layouts of the courts....... let me know whats good.... please!), social atmosphere in general, what professors are like in general, general disdain for certain things in the university....... etc, etc, etc..... this could get pretty interesting, so dont hold back. i greatly appreciate any insight, stories, embarrassing confessions, and so forth. thanks much.

now thats just barely faced lying blondie.
if your on campus and money isnt an issue, university court is propbably the best bit, although the non duplex rooms in stag hill are quite nice.
twyford has bad room layout awesom kitchens.
surrey, and batterseas courts are like 1960s flats.

um that bout summary of courts

haha, thanks. the accommodations website sucks, and is confusing as hell, and there are certain courts that i can't live in because im a post-grad, namely the ones you said were the best. awesome right. i apparently cant live in battersea, stag hill, twyford, or university. although, i might be able to...... it's weird, i sent them an email. theyre retarded.

and starbucks is the devil, by the way.

The advantage of that is that you get Jon (a member of the club and all round nice guy) as your warden which probably wouldn't give you any special privileges but would a least be someone friendly nearby. He's also a lecturer in the environmental strategies department which you may well be involved in.

Other things to add; I find my lecturers awesome but they will be different to yours. I find the union pretty awful but thats probably just me. Lots of nice pubs in Guildford, friendly people. Good eating places but often expensive (as is a lot of Guildford)

If you want some photos theres probably some on our facebook group (type in USMC and you should find it, picture of lots of topless people on a bus)

haha, when you search for USMC on facebook you get about 500 groups for the U.S. marine corps....... and as much as i would love to see lots of topless people on a bus (who wouldn't), i'm far far too lazy to go through all of the groups. i did join the USMC page though. so thanks.

alright, who wants to go to the pub?!?! i do i do. meet you guys there in like 3 months. ready........ go!

fuck me, i guess i didnt even introduce myself. that was rude i suppose. but hey, im casey (boy casey). im from saginaw MI, USA. im a smartass, i drink.... a lot..... i organize ridiculous shenanigans on a regular basis that may or may not involve police, nudity, and amazing memories........ im a horrible horrible unapologetic flirt....... basically an all around bad influence. all that aside, i am apparently one of the nicest and sweetest people ever (or my friends might just be lying to me...... i could believe both). im "that friend" that cooks for my sick friends and tries to make them feel better (while making fun of them at the same time usually), councils friends through boy girl/issues (one of my friends once described me as being her "gay best friend that's not really gay"), and so on and so forth.

im a huge nerd... admittedly..... not like the "book worm" nerd, but like the "i know all kinds of random detailed information about a lot of stuff and present this information when it's completely unnecessary" nerd.

lets see.... other random things to describe me...... my friends have told me i dance like a "ghetto black girl" ..... which im not quite sure how to take....... i hurt myself randomly and frequently (not on purpose, in case you're concerned or something), and its a running joke, it really and sadly is. ive been to the hospital 6 times in 4 years of college.

ok, im done. i feel super lame and myspace-esque writing this. anything else you creepers wanna know are either going to have to buy me a drink and show me a good time, or just ask. your choice.

This guy sounds like he will fit right in and take up the sensible themes of all our drinking and dinning rules without too much trouble. 

On the earlier post of what professors are like the answer is ellusive, iv met two or three in my 5 years here.  Doctors litter the place, postgrads shuffle about trying in vain to hurd us undergrads (well i was) on behalf of the lectures during any practical.  On the whole though all the staff and fellow students are really friendly and helpful.   I had a postgrad from the US helping in one of our labs and he said it was very odd to se us all helping one another and getting along as in the US (least where he went to uni) everyone was really competative and trying to make each other fail or not helping others to make themselves look better.  If thats true then you should find us a helpful bunch. 

As you like drinking and Dancing like a fool you may like some good music to go with that, in which case may i suggest NoWave, the universities alternative music society.  It has a fine collection of odd people to drink copious amounts and dance with and much of USMC regularly attends the nights.

Couple of helpful facbook links for you, there is prob myspace ones somewhere too. 

Enjoy your time at surrey, I might see you around sometime if Im back from the blackcountry.

Adam Wade, I study Aerospace Engineering. Currently doing  level P at SSTL in the research park, I climbed on a regular basis about 2-3 years ago with Imperial Climbing Club. Got as far as regular indoor climber and some top roping outdoors but nothing too difficult. Been to Devon torrs, some quarry somewhere and Swanage. Oh, and I don't drink, am 23 with a full clean drivers license for 3+ years and have no problem driving you all to the not so local pub on trips in the minibus. :) Never driven one before but have driven a transit, and that's similar in size and shape. :)

Good work. Just a little test to take. I'll speak to you on tuesday (assuming you are coming climbing or to the pub  :D) about it and go from there.

By Devon, do you mean dartmoor? There are tors there  :)

it could be dartmoor. You don't really pay attention when you just pile onto a bus and go somewhere. It was a rock with stairs cut into it. On the opposite side to the side we climbed. :)

Hey guys, just started the tonmeister course at Surrey this week.

I used to go indoor climbing twice a week a few years back, got up to around V3 or 4 standard but had to give it up cause I couldn't get to the climbing center anymore. Now that I have one across the street I don't really have an excuse, and I can't wait to get back on the walls. Just wanted to double check; tuesdays at 6pm and wednesdays at 2pm both at the vertex? And I have to get a package for the center too I guess. Other then that, see you on the walls!

And I've got a great experience at climbing... stairs... Well... not more than anybody on earth, I guess, except the people who live in desert and therefore do not have any stairs to climb - sometimes -.
Appart from that, I did a wee bit of climbing a few years ago, had to stop so I'm starting again...

my climbing history- once in year 6, where i did the chimney and whatever else under supervision... really liked the feeling of climbing and then standing up high :D

browsed around a couple threads then decided to post in there

*excited for tue's session~

Oh, and the reason I joined so late is cos i left my sturdy (climbing?) shoes in London at a friend's... and wanted to get them but I hadn't gotten round to it before~

Hello!
I guess I'm new now, should probably think about joining via unisport too... :roll:

anywho, I'm a final year computing "geek" who's been slacking off with the climbing for far too long now... so here I am, and looking forward to many challenging climbs  :)

I probably know most (some?) of you already, see you all at vertex/roots and the chistmas partay!

Not a new member but I couldn't seem to log on with my old account. Going on placement has not done much for my climbing. In fact it has done very little because by the end of the day I can't be arsed to do anything. My advice to anyone doing placement is not to drive a 70 mile round trip. It's a load of balls. Anyway, next year when I am back at uni I have made a pledge to myself to get down the climbing wall far more often and get the last 3 of them bloody panels of the hole done because it was really starting to get on my tits that I couldn't do them. :lol:

I think matt must have done it, but done now :) And most shops will give it to you if you say you're a BMC member. If you need to prove it I guess you could get the club's membership code. We should probably post it in the members section. And you get 20% off at Peglers.co.uk if you ring up and say you're from USMC.

I accually got it before I payed club membership for the year though, so maybe they are still using last years list of club members? Who sorts this out? weeman?

Climbing will improve your technique, so you'll get better at doing people.

Title: Re: New Members... Say HELLO!
Post by: Jez on October 02, 2009, 11:27:47 AM
Allow me to explain...

Indeedy said...
Hope so, i don't really do other people very well.

This was written in response to the suggestion that there may well be crowds of people at the wall on tuesday.

Most would take this to mean that you would be uncomfortable with this high concentration of people (Enochlophobia).

Now our Mr Miller here took an alternative meaning to this...

He interpreted the word 'do' to ascribe the action of having sex (as in 'I did her real nice'). Therefore reading your statement as 'I don't do (sex with) people very well', something I'm sure is not the case and you wouldn't discuss openly :-).

Now this leads to the possibility of a simple humorous play on this double meaning...

BUT Mr Millers comedy prowess goes further than that, he then binds his response up with the fact that climbing as a sport requires excellent technique (in fact it is suggested that technique and strength are equally important neither one alone leading to success in climbing) it is fair to say that providing sexual enjoyment to your partner(s) also requires technique (although I must say overlaps between climbing and bed skill are somewhat limited).

So Mr Millers response ...

Climbing will improve your technique, so you'll get better at doing people.

Is suggesting that by climbing your (sexual) technique will improve and therefore you will do (sex with) people better.

All this would lead to the smuttier members of the forum to let out a cheeky giggle.

Hope that helps, see you tues ;-)

P.s My analysis machine broke so I'm really bored.

If you mean gear colours, it's basically so we knows whose crap is whose; a lot of gear looks the same and costs a small fortune and is easy to mix in with other peoples so it's nice to be able to identify your own.  Harnesses/shoes tend not to leave your body so there is less chance of them being mixed up with other peoples so no need to tape these really.

I'll also need somewhere to live in Guildford when I get here. Does anyone know of any good shared houses with space? Preferably with room for a few kayaks and a car!!

Nice one,
