My wife and I are thinking about coming down to beautiful el potrero chico over new years. I was wondering if anybody is looking for a climbing partner. I'm nothing spectacular. very little bit of lead climbing. somewhere in the 5.9 5.10 area.

thanks for your time
James

thats not us. We are coming from the climbing mecca of Chicago IL. :)
That would be sweet though. Sounds like new years is the busiest time down there.

thanks

Hey, I am going down there 12/30-1/15. I just sent an invite to a bunch of friends to come with, but I'll likely be looking for someone to climb -so I'll keep in touch with you

If you practice a lot of leading in the gym, you should be able to get on the moderates at EPC. There are plenty of 5.8's that are fun, easy and shouldn't be much of a challenge.

Alternatively, you can hire local guides fairly inexpensively. That might be a way to get on some of the classic multi pitch climbs without feeling like you have to lead every pitch.

Hi Abe,

I'm planning to head to Potrero this weekend as well, arriving on the 7th.
I don't have a partner for the first few days, and it looks like we're climbing similar grades.
Interested in meeting up?

Cheers,
DAve
