Does anybody want to carpool to Seneca or the New this weekend? I already have partners there, but just want to split the gas cost from NoVa.

Damn you, I can't get out on weekdays. I am, therefore, square.
You better have put up some good lines.

Who is down with a weekend or overnight trip to Seneca this weekend 14-16th? If that is too committing, then how about day or overnight trip to Old Rag? I've got wheels!!

Hey,

I'm new to the board and have been climbing for about a year. I am 23 year old male and just moved into the Northern Virginia/ DC area and have been trying to go to Great Falls as frequently as possible, but am having trouble finding climbing partners.

I was a 5.10 climber in the gym (whatever that means) when I was climbing 4-5 times a week, but now that I only find a partner once every two weeks or so, I find myself outdoor toproping around 5.8-5.9.

I have all the gear for toprope setup (60m rope, webbing, etc.)

Looking for someone to climb with/ hang out on the rocks/ maybe even learn a few things.

Thanks

if your not getting much love on this forum, hit up the DC outdoor rock climbing forum......I would assume that it is bred out of this and I have had pretty good luck finding partners. I too am a grad student who recently moved here and may be down for climbing at Carder Rock this weekend. Email me reid_olmstead@yahoo.com or shoot a buzz on my cell 315-521-2941.
Best

Hey all, I'm looking for climbing partners in the DC area to climb with and hopefully learn from. I have some experiencing top roping. I'm hoping to broaden my horizons into Trad leading, Ice, Aid/Big Wall, Alpine, Everything! My schedule is hectic (School, 2 Jobs, Volunteer Work) but I do find myself with a lot of free time a few times a week. What do I have to offer? 50 m and 60 m of 10+mm rope, an Xterra with a lot of trunk space, and I work at Hudson Trail Outfitters (awesome employee discounts) :D If anyone is looking for a climbing partner or is willing to help me learn, please PM/IM/Email me.

Take care yall
Bevans

I'm moving to NOVA and am looking for climbing partner(s). I'm a beginner with basic gear (harness, shoes, helmet, belay device). I've never climbed in NOVA, but did some climbing last fall in California. Basically, I've never lead climbed but can do a gret job cleaning up. I'm definitely looking to improve my skills. My ability is in the 5.6-5.8 range. Please let me know if you're interested! :D

Hi everyone.
I'm from Bogota, Colombia. This is my third time at the U.S, last to times I went to a Summer camp up at the Adirondacks and after camp I went to the Gunks for a month each time.
In this trip I'm working here in Philadelphia, I just have Sunday off, but I could do a trip for some days anyway.
I'm a solid 10 trad, but I use to sport 11,12. I also love boudering.
so if somebody want to help me on this, because cultures and everything is so different here that in my country.

check out Suesca, Colombia to find where is my school, 400 routes, 4 pitch long, amazing place.

Thanks, so I'm waiting for your responses and any question about my country and whatever

I was at Buzzard Rocks today and met two hardened Alpinists running up and down the classics. Hey Brian and Bruce, glad we got to run into you and thanks for helping me figure out which routes were which. Give me a call when you want to go climbing.

I'm new here and still looking for a partner for Seneca the weekend of July 8-9th.

I've got some questions about the local ethic...

I've gone out to Buzzard Rocks a couple times recently and am new to the area. Is the local ethic to rap off of trees? Or walk around? I saw slings once but they were cut off a few days later. It seems that rap bolts up top would cause less damage to the trees and bushes. That being said, the place is over-bolted to my tastes. If it were my cliff, I'd chop a bunch and install some more up top. But it's not, so you tell me...

I encourage serious answers or flames - at least it will keep this post vibrant.

When you're up for some climbing out there, let me know.
Jeff

Jeff,
Every time I've been out there, aside from the day we met, I've walked off.
Doing two raps to get off m brotherhood is pointless, you beat us walking down.
eh, shrug. I'm gonna go grab a beer.

I'm heading to Linville Gorge in NC this weekend for some trad climbing. There are three of us so far, but we need a fourth. I'd welcome along anyone that wants to second me or switch off leads. We're leaving on Thursday night and returning Sunday afternoon. Anybody interested in joining?

Hey folks! I'm making a road trip down to NC end of the month and am pretty sure I drive through Virginia to get there. Would love to get a day or 2 of climbing on my way down and/or back up to break up the drive a bit. Anyone who knows the area interested in meeting up? Same goes for any folks who live in NC! :)
