    Are there any climbers interested in starting a tree climbing club for Alachua County Florida? I love to climb but I can't find anybody around here that is interested. I would like to start a monthly meetup where we can go to various parks and woods to climb for the day.

    Does a club in one of the bigger Florida cities already exist? I would be willing to drive to Orlando, Jacksonville or Tampa for a monthly group climb.

    Where does everybody in Florida rec climb?

    I have sent him an email asking for any advice or contacts. He seems to have a really good business here but I have yet to meet him. I would love to get some of the climbers he has had in his classes and start a monthly meetup.

    If you attend Geezers in the Treezers in January in Windermere, you'll meet a lot of Florida climbers.
