Thanks guys :)

Bluey, I agree somewhat, but i really want to start at the basics, I also feel that i will become more confident on real rock while top-roping.. then ill get into the more fun stuff : ) maybe in a month or two ill be ready.

Epic Steve.... *clears throat*
I have no qualms whatsoever with paying for a qualified guide, infact i have been researching into this, unfortunately, all of the ones i could find were in the Grampians, and being situated in the CBD, and wanting something short and sweet for a weekend daytrip, made that a little harder..
I also have no qualms about going out with experienced climber(s) offering to teach newbies how they do it... and considering they arenít dead, its a pretty good track record to me.. I would assume that their is no liability as there is no transaction with an apprentice type situation, and anyway, if i took a spill, i wouldnít turn around to someone who, out of the kindness of their heart, has wasted their day with a couple of bumblies to perpetuate this awesome sport and say "Iím going to sue you." no way.. if i fall it's nobodies fault but mine.
as for trad and lead climbing, yes, i am planning on paying an instructor to take me out for that in the beginning, due to the fact that you aren't dangling from a top-rope and if you fall you better be sure you know how to put in protection... but until that day, all i need is a kind soul to show me how to anchor and construct a top-rope... im a pretty smart cookie and can catch on quickly.... i donít need to pay someone with a piece of paper for that..
