I will be in Colorado between April 8th and April 25th. I will be based at my non-climber friend's place in Pueblo, hence I am looking for a partner. Am equally psyched for both activities. During my stay I can take trips within CO that are anywhere between one and seven days long.
With my local Alpine Club in Germany I have done some 50 days of ski touring in the Alps within the last few years (in Swiss Alpine touring grading I am doing tours up to ZS+ whatever that translates to in the US). Have taken several different avalanche safety and AT leading courses. I am aware of the complexity of leading and the dangers out there. My caution hasnít got carried away by too many perfect powder days and I have had no issue turning around when unsure. My fitness will currently last for about 5000ft vertical per day. Take into consideration that I am a student and cannot afford expensive accommodation. Cars, tents, inexpensive simple huts have always done.
Iím a safe and experienced climber who does sport, trad and bouldering at a moderate level. Besides Shelf Road, I donít know many other CO climbing areas warm enough in April. If there are some people who I could join for a week I would happily travel to CO-neighboring states as well.
So if you're laid-back, safe, reliable and interested feel free to contact me.
