Time to climb......

10:44:02 PM
After having pretty much a year off and having a second baby, starting climbing again and having a tree change, I'm just wondering when do you get the time to climb when you get job. I've just worked silly hours over the week end then started 8 to 4.30 weekdays new job and when I do see my family I'm just a grumpy ass. The thought off going out I slap my self as time rich is all to often money poor, but money rich and time poor often is a problem.
Which begs me to ask when do we find the time to climb?

You had really want to climb and steal the time away, or get a hang board.

I have night climbed easy stuff with head torches through the daylight savings period. This is great on a friday night. Get to the cliff before sunset and just launch on up. when it gets too dark switch on the lamp.

Ditto Neil's post. I have three girls who climb in my family. No enquires please.

Big long climbing trips (3-6 months) are the only times I'm happy. It creates challenges for finding employment that pays enough to pay for trips; either consume less or work hard when you're working. Babies? Careers? Tree changes? Meh. All sound overrated.

I love the dawn patrol; out by 5ish, home by 11am. After that I jump into parental mode with the kidlets. I make sure my wife has plenty of 'girly' alone time for shopping or hanging out with her friends because if she's happy, I get to climb/surf unimpeded.

I have taken my 4tr old out climbing with me a number of times but it would seem someone, shifty Nanna, has whispered in her ear that only 6yr olds are able to climb... Now everytime I ask if she wants to climb she say, 'sure dad, when I'm 6!'

I have a set day on Sunday to climb, out early home mid arvo..that way the missus knows its always coming and is fine with it....the occasional family stuff i.e. BBQ's that happen on Sundays means I miss a day here and there...but in the most part it works at getting me out. If I can get a few hours on Sunday on a "non' climbing Sunday i just grab my daughter and head to the gym for a boulder....who doesn't like climbing so much but loves the sneak into KFC on the way

Also have a set indoor session on Thursday...but like Miguel make sure the missus has plenty of her own time as well when she needs it.

Move to a climbing area, start your own business, climb 3 or 4 hours a day, work 3 or 4 hours a day, sell your kids
