Ive been climbing 6 years know make about 24? an hour what about you more experienced guys. Just wondering if 35 or 40 dollars an hour is reasonable. Im about to ask for a raise and i want top pay. I believe my ability is worth far more than what my pay is reflecting. It seems to me ive met alot of top notch climbers with there own co. maybe there really isnt any money unless you work for yourself.
