Front Range climbing partners - ongoing thread

Just moved to colorado (Evergreen) from SoCal and I am looking for partners.

Have been climbing on and off for three years, 80% of the time at JTree with the rest at williamson and tahquitz.

I don't climb all that hard at the moment, (5.8/9sh following, depending on type of climb, with some lead climbing, hope to lead more), but I am very safe and knowledgable, very comfortable placing pro and setting up anchors etc.... Most of my past climbing has been trad, multi pitch at tahquitz with some sport and bouldering thrown in. I also have some very limited aid climbing experience, no ice climbing experience. I am up for anything, sport, trad, bouldering, leisure day of top roping etc... doesn't matter, just want to get back out on the rock. I have enough gear for everything but aid.

Indoor climbing is OK too, rockn & jamn north or paradise.

Ideally I would like to hook up with someone who climbs harder (shouldn't be hard to find that :D ) so that I can start to push myself, lead more, get better etc.. but it really doesn't matter, I just want to get out and have some fun.

I've had a hell of a time getting people to climb this winter. Just moved to Denver area myself. I've been out plenty of times, but not often enough. Let's all get together and do some climbing. I'm PM both you guys with my contact info.

I too am new to Denver. I do trad or boulder, not a sport climber as evidenced by the fights I pick on this site. Not sure what kind of time I'll have but I'd like to get out once a week this spring and summer. I climb a bit harder than 5.8-5.9 but I imagine you'll catch on to the harder stuff rather quick. I'll send out some PM's too.

Looking forward to the new gym to open down south. Can't wait for warmer weather to get outside on real rock. Try to climb 3 days/nights a week Tues, Thurs and Sun. Send me a PM if you're going to be up at R&J.

I've got the guide book. Did a little climbing on the First once. I hike around there frequently, so I'm pretty familiar with the place now. If you want to hit some routes there, I'm all over that. Of course, there are many raptor closures there, but many good areas are open.

Add yet another person who needs partners.

I sport, toprope, and boulder.

Solid 5.8, onsight 5.9 90% of the time, and can occasionally whip out a 5.10 and even have been know to do an 11.

I want to learn trad so if you need a second I'm all to happy to apply.

Finally, I'm a pilot and will be doing my mountain flight training soon, so cool climbs that would normally require some lengthly driving can be made alot shorter by plane.

I'm also looking for a partner. I've got an off-peak membership to Rock'n & Jam'n (9-11 pm, M-F), and I'd like to meet more people in the area. I'd also love to try some outdoor climbing this year, so anybody that might be interested in helping an outdoor newbie would be appreciated.

Thanks!

So, who's going to climb this Sunday? PM me if you want a belay on some sport routes. Or e-mail me at timstich@yahoo.com. We'll be heading out at a decent morning hour, neither too early nor too late. No problem if you want to join us.

Hey,

I just pm'ed a bunch of you guys. Id love to get a group together, and it sounds like were all fairly new to the area and climbing in general. Im still in the springs and my plans to move up to Denver have ben pushed back but Im still going up to Boulder 3 days a week.

My schedule is thus...

In Boulder Mon, Wed, and Fri - could gym it in Boulder or Denver after 5:30. I climb at Paradise sometimes on thurs nights to.

Free all day Tues and Thurs, Sat and Sun. I forget who it was but Im real interested in climbing at the flatirons. Are Raptor closings just a spring thing?

If anyone is interested in climbing at the garden feel free to give me a buzz.

Later

I'll be swining in from my job in BFE Longmont pretty soon to boulder up in the areas near the Flatirons soon as the weather gets less snowy. I'll bring all of my gear just in case some routes can be done, but sunlight-wise I'm thinking bouldering is the ticket. A friend of mine in Boulder agrees. After that, post-work climbing in spring will be the weekly ritual, either Eldo, Flatirons, Boulder Canyon or Clear Creek and Golden. Climb until dark, and I do mean dark. Weekends climb at least one full day, meaning all day. Road tripping in spring. No money for flying trips, but hopefully later in the year.

A'ight.

Oh and, just a suggestion everyone. Unless you have plans to do multi-pitch or backcountry routes, there's no reason to keep the group small other than you are into that mindset. If you think climbing with one person is the only way to go, then like Mr. T., I pity you. I've seen people climb like that and have these exclusive arrangements evaporate, leaving them without a climbing partner. Que disastre!

If you were going to break out of the Gulag, would you just bring one partner? No, you would be wise to bring a third. If one of you dies on the frozen tundra, this leaves a hot meal for his comrades. It is a model of redundancy that works. Bring a backup when cragging.

Hey, Can I get in on this too? I am pretty new to Boulder, but having trouble finding partners. I climb 2x a week at the BRC (T,TH) and try to get outside on the weekend. I am leading .8 trad right now, but want to get solid at .9 or higher this year. I also lead about .10d sport and would like to step that up too. I live about 10 min from Eldo and the Flatirons and LOVE Lumpy Ridge. Give me a call or PM if you anyone wants to get out or in the gym. 703-867-0153

I just spoke with a friend who told me alot of the climbs at the flatirons are really runout and thin on protection - I would love to climb there I just think someone with much more lead experience would be good to have for those.

How does Golden Cliffs sound next saturday to everyone?

I'm looking to head out Monday if anyone's interested. I was thinking somewhere in South Platte, but am open for most anything. Since I'm coming down from Vail, it doesn't really matter to me where I go. PM me or email to bswickes at hotmail.

I am up for it.

Just let me know where and what time.

I am assuming golden cliffs is a sport climbing area, yes?

Eldo sounds good to but I can't lead up anything even remotely challenging, yet.

Oh, don't let the runouts bother you on the Flatirons. They are fine. The rock is solid and provides good friction. And, I might add, many of them are rated below 5.3. My wife and I climbed a 5.0 even on the First. Three pitches of 5.0. Where else can you find something that easy? And I could get good pro.

The main pain in the ass with the Flatirons is the wildlife closures. They have complex maps showing what is closed. The Third is off limits until August for example. No matter, though. There are tons of areas out there like the Seal, the Matron, the whole First, The Slab, The Amphitheater, and so on. Snow and ice on the rock is what's keeping me away at the moment.

If the six inches of snow melt in Eldo by Sunday, then it would be fine. We just chose Golden Cliffs because it was snow free on Saturday. I can now confirm that much of the snow in the canyons near Denver is melting. We climbed at Highwire Crag in Clear Creek and were sweating today. Nice.

Many of us were talking about doing a sport outing as our first gig, but I would be willing to switch to Eldo if that is the consensus. I prefer climbing there myself and have lead about a dozen or so routes out there now at Wind Tower, Redgarden, and West Ridge.
