Due to the giant flux of people in and mainly out of Missoula, I have found myself with no partner prospects for the upcoming season and no time to meet people. And these warm temperatures have me worried that very soon there will be dry rock to climb and no one to climb with-eek!
I'm mainly interested in traditional multi-pitch routes in the Bitterroots, but am always open to new places. I am intermediate level with a rack and rope, can lead 5.8 and 5.9 if I've climbed it before and can wrench myself up harder routes on a follow. Mill Creek has been my favorite drainage for the last two seasons and I'd love to climb the dihedrals this year with someone who has climbed them before.
I'm good at waking up early and long days, so if you are looking for a driven partner drop a line. I'm also into mtn. biking and trail running/hiking with my mutt so if you're interested in a little pre season training, we can talk over summer goals. Here's to hoping for some more snow before this spring thing starts again : )
