How long have you been climbing and what type of climibing have you done? (lead, top rope, trad, sport, boulder, indoor)

About 15 years outdoors, mostly following. I lead trad/sport 5.7 to 5.8 with an occasional 9. Follow 10s and sometimes 11s. I prefer ropes to boulders. I would like to lead more, but I'm slow at anchor building and kinda chicken :) I need to get more efficient at anchors, build confidence, and learn self-rescue skills to feel safe on multi-pitch alpine routes. I started climbing at Mesa Rim last year when my boys joined the rock climbing team, and we're usually there MWF from 4-6 pm+. I'm often looking for a partner to show up early. I lead climb up to 10b in the gym. Top rope 10s and projecting 11s.

Where would you like our group to meet?

Anywhere outside! I'm also interested in road trips. Yosemite anyone? How about ice climbing?

How did you hear of this meetup group?

Introduction

I started climbing in 1997. My kids are on the Mesa Rim team, so we climb more indoors lately. I'm often looking for a lead-certified partner Weds & Fri at 4pm. I love Joshua Tree! I'm happy to meet outdoor climbers/campers/fam­ilies for road trips.
