My first climbing experience was in Yosemite with a guide on Pup rock in Tuolumne meadows. I love the challenge of building anchors and climbing in beautiful locations: Yosemite, Zion, Bear Valley, and Pinnacles.
I have been climbing on/off for over 5 years. Lots of classes: anchors, self rescue, and multi-pitch in Yosemite and Bear Valley. Some canyoneering in Zion. My favorite type of climbing is outdoors on a top rope (for now, multi-pitch later). Best place I have climbed is Spicer Terraces near Bear Valley.
Solid Anchors, Good belay skills, Understanding of how to inspect gear, Route finding, local knowledge. Good communication between partners and setting expectations of the climb before starting out.
Hi, looking for people to climb with in the bay area. I've had lots of classes and I'm just starting to venture out on my own, without a paid guide, with friends from my climbing classes.
GYCO is very active with a variety of climbing.
