Male, 70 years old

Sacramento, California, United States

Occupation: Retired

Partner Details: I live in the Sacramento area. I can climb any day of the week. I workout a lot and keep myself in good shape. I’m really hooked on climbing. Been climbing for about 15 years and originally did mostly trad, now getting into sport climbing and also enjoying it. I have a 50/50 chance of getting a pumpy 11b sport climb on top rope after a few tries. I love to lead and lead at the 10c/d sport and 10b/c trad onsight levels. So you can see where I am. I climb at least twice a week and usually go to Sugarloaf, Lovers Leap, Tahoe areas, Calaveras or Yosemite in the summer or Sugarloaf, Merced River Cyn, Auburn Quarry or Table Mountain in the winter. I go on a road trip about once a month to J tree, City of Rocks, Owens, Yosemite etc. I did a few big wall routes a few years back but haven’t been motivated to do any recently. I enjoy one or two Sierra backcountry routes a year like Clyde Minaret or routes on Incredible Hulk etc. A few years back I climbed all the 14’ers in California, mostly mountaineering type ascents but I pretty much got out of that when I got into rock climbing. I am serious about climbing and not just a casual climber altho I believe climbing should be fun and we shouldn’t take ourselves too seriously. Climbing is a big part of my life. I’d be willing to mentor a climber who likes to follow 5.10’s and push hard. If any of this makes since to you I’d be delighted if you’d respond to johnr9q@yahoo.com
