So I have been climbing indoors for years and used to work at the Class 5 touchstone gym in Marin before it closed. I am a student at cal now and work as a kayak/backpacking instructor on the side. I have the summer totally free and want to hit the granite!
I am looking for a partner around my age who would be willing to lead some climbs for me and possibly teach me some stuff about leading and setting anchors. I am more than willing to pay for the gas or trade you some food/be your gear donkey.
I have experience following trad leads in Yosemite (central pillar, daff dome in Tuolomne, jam crack, etc) and can follow around a 5.8-9 trad, about a 5.10a, b sport.
I have a gorgeous new two-tone 60m 10.2 rope, a truck, and all the camping gear you would ever need. plus i have my wfr so just in case, i can deal with the injuries :)
Come on people, help a girl out!
lets meet up at a gym first but hit up lovers leap, the valley, castle rock, mt tam, indian creek, jtree, ANYTHING soon
