I'm in Santa Barbara a few more weeks and looking for a climbing partner to do an easy technical route in the sierras. I can trad lead 5.8 solidly and into 5.10 on good days on certain routes, but alpine, I'll lead to 5.7. I've done several alpine climbs in the past (Cowboy Ridge in Zion, East ridge of Forbidden Pk in WA, some ridges in the Bugaboos) as well as several long-ish multipitch routes up the Chief in Squamish (Ultimate Everything, Squamish Buttface, Angel's Crest).
I don't have a car but am fine with splitting a rental. I have a 60m rope and rack (basically doubles to BD #1, singles #2-3, extra small stuff, nuts, etc).
I also have sept 15-18 open on this coast, then I return to the Boston area (Whites, Gunks etc) and, eventually, back to Squamish (aka: think forward to having a potential climbing partner in those areas!).
