Hey man, I'll gladly climb with you. I'm SUPER SAFE, and always check my knot. I wash my rope with gasoline every night, to make sure it is clean for the next day. I also have TONS of chalk, so we can put tick marks all over our proj. If you want to spot me while I do some one finger pullups, send me an email.

On a more serious note, for everyone reading this, this dude is my buddy, and he is a very safe and reliable partner. I trust his lead belay 100%, and he doesn't mind an alpine start to get some good rock.

But he's in Boulder, so he's fucked.

You'll probably have better luck looking for a partner on Mountain Project as it's Boulder centric. I empathize with you. I often get on easy routes that end up being hard routs.

Take care,

Go to The Spot on Monday. It's student day, so it's only 5 bucks if you get there before 5. Ride the bus - the one that goes down Arapahoe will get you really close - and your student ID gets you on it free.

You'll meet a ton of people. Also, you'll stand in line to try problems, and you'll feel really silly for climbing indoors in Boulder.

It's worth it to meet people, though.
