I have been climbing a few months and I live in Auburn (Atlanta during the summer). I really need a more experienced partner to climb with and learn from. If you can help me at all let me know.

You might have better luck if you add, "I'll carry the rope, buy the beer, and drive."

The clincher would be, "I'm a former Dallas cheerleader and I just broke up with my boyfriend."

we've had this conversation before, but mentors will almost never act altruistically. They will mentor because they want to get laid, can't find other climbing partners, need an ego boost, etc. Just something to keep in mind.

haha sounds like I should change that to looking for a partner, not mentor.

And to my misfortune, I am not a chic.

Oh well..

My main local partner just moved...
My ego is consistently dashed upon the rocky shores of SouthEastern trad climbing...

Check your email, Sean.
