Rope? Rack? Car? Location? Years climbing?

All that info would probably help potential partners be more inclined to drop you a message.

I have a rope, a rack, a car, and am in White Plains (Westchester). I have been climbing off and on for almost 15yrs but pretty hard during the summers for 2 or 3 now. I am also a graduate of a 3 week NOLS course for climbing in Wyoming

I'd be down for climbing during the weekends with you. From your profile you are a much better climber then me, but if you can't find anybody, i'd partner up for sure

My profile is just a ruse. Look at my signature if you want to know anything about how I climb.

I am not going to bring my computer, but PM me closer to the date and I can confirm my plans.Look for the cartoon character once you get there.

I'm relatively flexible when given a weeks notice or so. 3 day weekends are easier then 4 day weekends for me. I'm looking to go this weekend though if your up for it. It would only be the 2 days though.

Hey, this is Andrew. I'm in NJ for an internship until mid August.

I'm still looking for a climbing partner for the Gunks. Due to the internship, I'm only available for sat-sun trips. I have an excessive rack (and other gear), and a car. I'm happy leading on gear (and following) in the 5.easy to 5.10 range. As far as I know, the weekend of june 26-27 is busy, but every weekend after that is free for climbing.

Let me know if you want to plan any trips. You can email me at ajbean (AT) uiuc (point) edu, or call at 2one7-6two2-1four93. I have also posted on mountainproject.

Bean is a solid, strong, safe partner. I have climbed with him quite a bit and enjoy doing so. If any of you yankees are looking for an enjoyable day out or to push your limits, Beans got you covered.

He also has way to much gear for someone living in Illinois!!
