I can help!

I'm a competent climber - been at it for well over a decade. Was leading up to 5.12 trad and sport. Blew a finger pulley a couple of months ago, and am just now starting to get back on rock. All my old partners would be bored to death on the stuff I need to get on now - I just need lots of mileage on easy to moderate rock. I'd be happy to teach you anything you want to know, or just get out and have fun.

Hey,

My name is Mark. I live in Fremont County, Wyoming and am just starting to get into crack/gear climbing. I really don't have much interest in sport climbs.

Basically, I want to climb all the time, but im having a super hard time finding a willing OG to sort of put me through an apprenticeship, even in Lander. So if you're down, id be down to drive down there to climb. I have a decent rack and rope and can belay. Im 5'10", 150 lbs.

Let me know if you want to rock that shit sometime. 406 697 6494

Hey you!!! Long time no talk! How'd you manage to blow a finger? Ouch! Anywho, couldn't swing 2 weeks off of work to go canyoneering so I'm stuck with one week off and I'm itching for at least a mini adventure. Where you at these days?

In still in Denver. Moved out here three years ago now. It's great!

No good reason for screwing up my finger. Did a move pretty similar to moves I'd probably done 1000 times before. Yes, it was a hard move. Yes, I probably had not warmed up quite as much as I might have. But I've done harder moves with less of a warm-up. Oh well. Anyway it's on the mend now.

Would be fun to climb w/ you, but I'm not able to take any time off - all my vaca is scheduled for the rest of the year. So I'm stuck being a complete weekend warrior for the rest of this year. Which is fine, since I shouldn't push it for a few more months anyway.

GO

Hey Gabe, we met at Gail's in NY this summer. My husband and I are out in Boulder, if you need partners for weekends or nights after work, feel free to send me a PM. We'll be a bit busy for the next few weekends with other stuff but in the fall should have more free time. I think the weekend of Aug 28 some acqs from Philly are coming out and going to do Bastille Crack in Eldo with the hub so I could use a partner that day if you want to climb with me. Give a holler,

Kim

Hi Gabe,

I am really glad to hear from you.
When you have a chace to go out, please let me know. I am new to rock climbing and did 5 times so far with paid guided tour this year. I really want to see and do rock climbing. I can provide a ride to you anywhere and I have a 60 meter rope, quick draws, ATC, etcs.

Thanks,
