Weekend Rock Climbing Partnering and Carpooling Gunks/Daks/West Point/NE

The rock climbing season is upon us! Same spiel as last year. Post here if you are looking to carpool or partners the weekend - Saturday or Sunday.  We are extending this partnering/carpooling thing to the Daks, New England or West Point, feel free to find post partners for wherever. Please state in your RSVP what you are looking to climb and which day you are looking to climb/carpool.

------------------------------------
This meetup is to facilitate carpooling and/or partnering. There is no official group climbing, but we usually end up sharing ropes if top-roping and stopping in town for dinner/drinks after the climb (if majority goes to the Gunks). Please note that this is NOT an official rock climbing event and we are not organizing the event nor are responsible for anything other than helping our members to carpool and/or find partners.

Carpooling:
If you are driving and are willing to give a ride to passengers, please post how many passengers you can take and from where. If you are looking for a ride please post that you are looking for a ride and from where. The passengers are encouraged to pick up all or the majority of the costs associated with driving (gas/tolls). We are not facilitating carpools, so passengers and drivers are responsible for contacting each other about rides.

Climbing Partners: If you are looking for a climbing partner, please state your climbing level and what kind of partner (TR, trad, lead, second etc.) you are looking for and what kind of gear you have. Please be honest about your experiences and skills.

Once you made desired arrangement (ride or partner) please post and update your RSVP accordingly.  Have fun and climb safe!

Disclaimers:
Rock climbing is a dangerous activity that can lead to serious injury or worse. You should not undertake these without proper training or equipment. By signing up on this trip you are also electronically signing a waiver of liability!

    Looking for a partner or a group to tag along with. I have a rope, rack and a car. I just moved to NY from California. I haven't been to the Gunks before. I was leading trad around 5.10 in CA but would like to stick to (very) easy stuff just to learn my way around. I would be up for easy leads (sport or trad), cragging or whatever else people are up for. Just let me know. I live in Brooklyn.

      Hey, Matt. I'm climbing 5.11 in the gym, but don't have a lot of experience outdoors, so I'm happy to follow. I live in Brooklyn as well.

      Matt, just moved from VA and definitely interested in checking out the Gunks if you want a partner. Lots of outdoor sport experience up to 12a leads outside, limited trad experience, but would love to learn if you're willing to trade some advice for a belay partner! I'm in Brooklyn and can go all day tomorrow.

    Anyone in the vicinity of Jersey City interested in going to the Gunks this weekend? Looking to lead trad up to 5.6, can follow on harder climbs. Have full rack and rope. Will pay gas/tolls or split a rental.

    Hi. I'm looking for a climbing partner. I lead climb, but don't have the entire gear. I have a rope, some quickdraws, and personal climbing equipment.

    Hi! I'd love to find a top-roping partner/group for this weekend. I climb regularly at the gym (about 5.9/10) and have climbed outside several times. I don't lead, but have lead belayed before (once). I don't have a rope or anything. Obviously I realize i'm not the most attractive partner...so i will make it up by paying for gas/buying you a beer

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
