I'm 60 and in good shape for that age, but I am just not as fast as I once was - in spite of a lot of work. I'm looking for someone to climb some of the easier Sierra classic (3rd-5.6) with.
I have all the gear (and then some) and experience going back decades, though I have not lead rock for a year or more. Last summer I did the Dana Couloir, this year 2-18,000 peaks in Peru but it took me a while to acclimatize. I don't want to bullshit anyone so please reread the first sentence. I'd ideally like to find a regular partner for year round mountain sports.
