I am looking for climbing partners in the DC/VA/MD area. I have some top rope experience, and would like to graduate to trad climbs this season. I would be open to partnering up with a more experienced climber, or someone on my own level who is interested in trad climbing. I would also enjoy some top roping at Great Falls. I am available most weekends.
I am also looking for a partner for a mountaineering trip to Colorado this summer. I have some experience with 14ers, having "climbed" Mt. Shasta, and Mt. Rainier this past winter. I don't have a particular mountain or route planned yet, but I am thinking of someting Class III or IV. I believe that practicing a bit as a team is imortant, so I would prefer a partner who is available for some local climbs in the DC area.
