Thanks so much both of you! You gave me some more ideas of what I can do to train and test myself at home. My surgeon did recommend physical therapy but at the time of the injury I wasn’t able to get to a good hospital regularly (don’t live in the states at the moment, nearest good hospital is an hour and a half away) so it wasn’t an option. But I’m finding things that help, and my knee nearly has full range of motion back. @hikermor @bryndsharp And, yeah 😬 even in my very limited experience I can tell indoor climbing is so different from outdoor. The trip I’m trying to plan will be with a guide.. so I won’t be without good help!

Hey. So I am a very beginner climber, I’ve only climbed once outdoors, but several times indoors. It’s a big interest of mine though. And I’m trying to plan an outdoor trip for the end of this year. However, a few months ago I was in a motorbike accident and completely tore the ACL in my right knee. My surgeon didn’t recommend surgery to fix it, and it’s pretty stable already. But I’m wondering if rockclimbing is basically out of the picture. Because of current circumstances I am not able to get to a gym to test things out. Does anybody know of someone who rock climbs with the same injury as mine or similar injury? Any tips or advice?
