What are your other ourdoor pursuits?

Hiking, canoeing, Kayaking, meditating, backpacking, camping, and anything else.

Where have you climbed and where is top on your list to go to next? What are you hoping to get from being a member of this group?

I have climbed in the Mourn Mountains of Northern Ireland and the Appalachian Mountains of Pennsylvania. Right now, the top of my list to climb is here in Arizona. Living here in a state with so many unique mountains, I cannot pass up this opportunity. From being a member of this group, I hope to find people with similar interests, to climb with and gain experience.

What rating can you top rope?, lead sport?, lead trad? If you are a new climber, please state so. How long have you been climbing? What gear do you own?

I have no experience with American terminologies. But I would say that I can belay, abseil, and have knot knowledge on a professional level. As far as actual climbing, I am a beginner. I own a harness, belay plate, some carabiners, and some slings. But they are currently in Pennsylvania.

Have you read and understand this groups climbing disclaimer? Do you understand that rockclimbing is a dangerous sport and you are responsible for your own safety?

I have not seen an official disclaimer, but I understand how dangerous climbing is indoor or outdoor.

Introduction

I've spent 2011 working as an outdoor instructor in Northern Ireland. There, I have developed a passion for climbing. I was from Pennsylvania originally, but decided to move here for a change of scene. I have experience indoor and outdoor climbing.
