Ill send you a PM with my email. Give a shout when your out here. I'd be more than happy to show you around (tahoe, yosemite, whereever you like). Forget the sport and bouldering fer christ sakes you'll be 3 hrs from yosemite!!! Im a grad student so fairly flexible with schedule.

I used to climb with alot of older englishmen in Kenya when I lived there, I only hope you don't have the same aversion to camming devices as they seemed to!! (they seemed to consider it cheating).

:D cheers for that. cams dont bother me, i'm quite new to climbing and one thing i like is you set your own standards and achive what you set out to do. if you do cheat on a climb so what next time try not to as long as you dont BS about it.
