Looking for a partner to climb Rainier this summer! I'm 18 years old, would love to get into climbing but am stuck in the catch-22 of needing experience to climb but needing to climb to gain experience. I am very athletic and would have no problem doing it physically, but someone with knowledge and experience would be greatly appreciated to help teach me a little! I'm amiable, intelligent, and safe. I learn quickly. I read "Freedom of the Hills" religiously, practice knots in my dorm, have had basic experience with an ice axe and crampons in the Cabinet mountains where I live, have done self-arrest and belays. Would love to get more involved in this amazing sport, just need a little kickstart!
