Looking for a climbing partner mainly rock climbing experience but want to expand my skills now that I am in a area with lots of climbers.

I have a set of cams two sets of stoppers 15 quick draws 6 locking biner's tons of webbing and slings crash pad rope 3 harnesses.

Recently bought a ice axe this winter but haven't had a chance to learn to use it next buy is a set of grivel crampons.

My biggest concern with climbing with someone i don't know is that they can belay properly I was dropped by a guy 30ft on a trad route to the deck many years ago and I don't intend to let that happen again.

Places I have climbed in California Joshua tree, big rock, box spring, this place cant remember name off I-15 crappy rock quality.

Tennessee- Twall, leda, foster falls, short mountain, sunset rocks, sau training wall and some place near dalton or dayton i was hiking at.

Colorado- The amphitheater and right outside golden.

West Virginia- Summersville lake deep water soloing.

Ireland- Kilkenny ballykeefe quarry plan to return next christmas visit the family and climb some more there.

Minnesota- Devils lake (bloody mosquitoes will eat you alive)

Idaho- Table Rock, Mores Mountain, leslie gulch.

Tons of caving experience as well.

Always looking for next adventure.

You can never be too careful.
