In reply to:
I have recently finished school and began work as a traveling physical therapist. I have served assignments that have allowed substantial climbing out of new york, chattanooga, new hampshire, north carolina, and west virginia. I am about to head west and have heard it is difficult to roll into town and link up with partners and find a group to hit the rock with. I climb all disciplines and am down for anything.
I am interested in boulder, salt lake city, cities near city of rocks in idaho, vedauwoo wyoming, joshua tree, yosemite, smith rock oregon, and interested in a good bit of mountaineering in the cascades.
Just hoping the rumors arent true. i grew up in tennessee and have learned about the outdoors in the southeast, so i suppose im used to the hospitality.
If it is in fact tough to link up with other climbers or to fit into a niche, what methods are recommended to find partners?
