I am planning on hitting EPC up for two weeks in late March or around there. I am generally down for multi-pitch up to 5.11- and single pitch up to 5.12a. At the moment I donít have a solid partner.

i have never done multi pitch but i would love to learn more about it! I think i have most of the gear for multi pitch and definitely everything for standard sport. I will probably head to Chico in the first week of march and i have no partner at all. I will keep this thread updated and maybe PM for exact dates/meeting up?? I have climbed 5.12a in the gym and i am comfortable trying just about anything outdoors! Thanks for the reply

Since you have been before... is it pretty easy just to walk up to the wall and find someone to climb with?

Hey there,

I hope to get to EPC around March, too and intend to stay for a few months. When I climbed I was a decent 5.10b,c climber, but am just starting back. For the beginning, I will not be leading anything and will, in that time frame, likely only lead easy stuff if I do. I am normally, or at least I prefer to be a trad climber, but have done a decent ammount of sport. When are you planning to head down? What is your climbing story?

Best,
Beth

Beth,
I have climbed off and on for the past few years, but I started getting really into it this past summer. This stuff is addicting ha! My hardest lead is a 5.11a, and I am hoping to get better. I want to get on some multi pitch routes as well.
I know how it feels to fall out of shape and try to get back into it, it is all worth it though! I am heading to Mexico City in February, and hopefully arriving in Hidalgo sometime in early march. We should get on some routes! Cant wait to get south of the border...

Hi there,
I will look forward to climbing a bit with you. Let me know when you do get to El Portrero Chico and how we can get in touch with each other. I will not carry a phone, but do not believe we will be far from the internet in town. I excited to get south, too!
