Welcome to Geeks Love Climbing!


Climbing for geeks by geeks, because geeks love climbing. Shamelessly stolen from inspired by http://geekslovebowling.com


A few folks have mentioned wanting to get a group together to go rock climbing while at conferences. Pack your climbing shoes and let's do it!



The Conferences

  • ...


The Climbers

  • Kevin Rose (I own buildering.com, no joke, click the ads)
  • Daniel Burka (I'm can climb the routes Kevin talks about climbing)
  • Brian Shaler (I fall for Daniel's trash talk and lose bets against Kevin)

The Successful Climbs

Past geeks love climbing sessions:

  • SXSW2009
  • SXSW2008
  • 3/26-3/28 San Diego: W3C CSS Working Group meeting (should move this to its own past archive page and leave a link in place)
    • 3/27
      • Solid Rock in San Diego
      • 7pm at Solid Rock
        • +1 Tantek
        • +1 Lisa
        • +1 Liz
        • +1 Alex
        • +1 Brynn
      • dinner afterwards nearby in old town and hillcrest (suggest something!)
        • +1 Tantek
        • +1 Lisa (open to anything, vegan option + non-obnoxious parking gets bonus points)
        • +1 Liz (ortegas has sweet margaritas, bamboo lounge has yummy fusion but takes forever, and my favorite place for old speckled hen on tap, shakespeares pub... )
        • Although I won't be joining you for climbing, I'd love to be in on dinner/drink plans. As far as Hillcrest/Mission Hills/Old Town goes, I'd recommend Mamá Testa for Mexican (best tacos in town, bar none). Seconded Shakespeare & Bamboo Lounge as nice spots--Shakespeare for dinner & afterwards, Bamboo Lounge to chill post dinner but I wouldn't bother eating there. Bamboo Lounge is on the same block as Mamá Testa; could be a nice combo. -- Edward O'Connor
        • +1 Alex (Ted knows his eats.)
        • +1 Brynn (sad to say that after 1.5 years living in SD, I have no idea where to suggest...)
  • 2008-05-07 6pm New Zealand (should move this to its own past archive page and leave a link in place)
