Woo Hoo, A new climbing partner!

My friend Manny was in from AZ over the Labor Day holiday. It was his first time at the gunks and we had a great 6 days of classic three star climbing. On our last day of climbing together he casually mentioned that a (hard core) climbing friend had moved to Philadelphia and that I should reach out to her. He suggested that the two of us might just get along.

Well, I called his friend and we went to our local sport climbing quarry in Birdsboro on Saturday. I figured we would put up a few climbs and be done in a few hours or so. Well, it turns out that we were amazingly compatible and we put up 11 pitches each; ranging from 9's to 11's. It was great to climb with someone, who was incredibly capable, yet at the same time amazingly cheerful, humble, fun and didn't take herself too seriously. I am hoping that we can climb together throughout the fall and that I will learn much from her vast aid, sport, trad and mountaineering experience. Is she the answer to my trad mentor prayers? I sure hope so!

Here's to new partners...Hurrah!
