Hello, my name is Brian and I live in Santa Monica. I'm looking for dependable climbing partners (i.e. who never back out of trips at the last minute) with experience placing and cleaning gear, and building bomb proof anchors, and also who have a stellar safety record. I'm a solid 5.9 trad leader, aspiring to lead more 5.10s but I enjoy easier routes as well. I also enjoy sport climbing and occasional bouldering. I climb almost every weekend but almost never in the gym. I am really excited about climbing this fall, at Red Rocks especially, but also J Tree and local sport climbing areas I've yet to check out (like New Jack), so if you're interested in meeting up at the local crags to climb a little and swap stories and plans, please shoot me an email at briangellis [at] humnet [dot] ucla [dot] edu


Short list of some of my favorite trad climbs I've lead:

- Tahquitz and Suicide:
Super Pooper, 5.10a
Whodunnit, 5.9; Open Book, 5.9
Flower of High Rank, 5.9
Captain Hook, 5.8
- J Tree
Illusion Dweller 5.10a?
Double Dip, 5.6
- Red Rocks
Beulah's Book and Johny Vegas to Solar Slab, 5.9 variations
Frog Land, 5.8
- Eastern Sierra
East Buttress Whitney, 5.7
Fishhook Arete, 5.9
- The Valley and Tuolumne
Nutcracker, 5.9 start
South Crack, 5.8 R
The Guide Cracks, 5.5 - 5.8
