Local Peakbagging Partner

Hey there,
I live in Colorado Springs and I am AMPED for the summer! This'll be my first summer here and I can't wait to do a bunch of bagging in my local area. (I'd like to hit some state HPs and maybe a few 14ers on weekends, but I love keeping it local). I"m looking for someone that likes peakbagging via trailrunning primarily: I travel ultralight, usually not bringing water or snacks even.
For reference, I recently hit Tenney Crags exposed 4th class route, Mt. Garfields 2/3 and Arthurs 2nd class routes in one ridge run in about a 4.5 hour 10ish mile round trip with plenty of short stops to check the map, snap picks and take in the view. I hadn't been to the area before and routefinding was a bit more of a factor (which resulted in many summiting another unnamed peak, haha!) Regardless, if you're interested at all, I'd love to have a buddy to plan and participate. Let me know!
