Howdy ~~ I wrote a few weeks back mentioning I'd be in the area and was looking for area beta and partners....y'all gave me some good advice. Now, I'm here but am without any partners.

Currently, I'm in Chapel Hill. Saturday the 18th or so (depending on yet to come plans) I'll start driving in the general direction on Louisville, KY. I would love to climb along the way for 1 to 3 days. I need to be in Lville by 22nd at the latest. Then on the drive back, I have the 26th and 27th available.

I'm from Seattle (well, from Chapel Hill, but currently live in the NW) so I'm used to great trad and alpine routes. I do a bit of everything tho' and would be happy to just get on some good rock out here. In the Pacific Northwest, my ability is generally up to 5.9, 510a ish, though 5.7-5.9 is what I typically stick to as I've only been climbing for about 6 months. I don't have a good sense of how stuff is rated out here.

I'm not on email a ton, but I will check in here. Otherwise email maryk@drizzle.com or call 206-915-2118 and leave a message. Many thanks and hope to hear from some of you!

Hey if you still need a partner for anytime on the weekend pm me. Next friday or whenever you get back in the area. I have a decent rack also :D . I have been going to Pilot mnt. lately. It has an easy approach, a wide variety of grades and types of climbs. No multipitch though. Have fun. Steve

Steve, EZ -- I'd be up for meeting up with either or both of you.
PM me, email me at maryk@drizzle.com or call my cell at 206-915-2118.

Steve -- I can get out of Chapel Hill early to mid-morning Saturday and be Pilot, Stone or Looking Glass pretty quickly on Saturday, for a Saturday and/or Sunday climb

EZ -- You say you're available the 20th and 21st? Maybe the 20th for me, then I really need to start heading to KY.

I've been told by several folks to just go to Red River Gorge and get a partner at Miguels. How long of a drive is that from western NC, would any of y'all think?

I can climb on the 26th and 27th too! Any other interested folks??

OK Folks ~~ I'll be at Pilot tomorrow, hopefully meeting up with Steve and others. ?? Then heading to the Red. I think I have a partner for Sunday, but am still very much looking for partner(s) for Monday and Tuesday. I've posted on a couple other websites. Can't believe how hard it is to find partners out here! I'm not used to this. :(

So, email or call if you are interested. I'm cool - I promise. :wink:
Calling is best as I may not have email access after tomorrow morning.
Cell is 206-915-2118.

Many thanks! ~~ cb
