(REQUIRED) Are you over 18 years old? (Yes/No)

Sadly, yes. :-)

What's your experience? Climbing Rating. Indoor, top rope, sport, trad, lead experience?

Been climbing 10+ years now, with breaks for two shoulder surgeries! On a good day I can find 5.10's that i get along with. A little sport and even less trad leading outdoors before those surgeries; not sure what the future holds for me. But I'm good with gear/techniques, and enjoy teaching others, especially when it comes to safety!

What are your aspirations? ie. hope to lead, climb big wall, do El Capitan, etc

If my shoulders ever recover enough for me to recover the strength and endurance I had in the past I'd like to get back to some easy trad. Regardless, i just want to stay in shape and have fun, and help others do the same.

How did you hear about us? Web search, Friend, through Meetup.com, etc.?

Introduction

Thanks to mentoring and encouragement from other Meetup members I've gone from terrified to my first outdoor sport leads and am having a great time at it! Climbing is the first upper body exercise I've found that I actually enjoy!

What David is saying about this Meetup Group

If you're looking for a great way to get exercise for your body, find a challenge for your mind, and to meet great people who will help you with both then look no further!
