ET-Rockville (I moved nearby a bit intentionally =] ), but there's a soft spot in my heart for ET-Columbia, where I first learned. My outdoors experience is currently limited - Carderock, Great Falls, Sugarloaf - but I like being by the water.
Hiking, backpacking and general camping. I'd like to do more mountain biking and kayaking, and get back into orienteering, trail running and adventure racing. There's only so much time! But I recently started having a blast learning kitesurfing.
Yes to top roping and sport leading (certified to climb and belay at ET). No trad at this point.
Mostly whatever challenges me and teaches me something. =] Top rope - 5.10s, but it's fun to push and play on grades above. Sport lead - 5.9, but want to advance that. Bouldering - V2/3
Hi! I moved back to the area mid-'12 and would like to meet more climbers. I enjoy the fun and challenge of working "stuff" out on walls/rock, want to climb more outdoors and learn/practice more skills, and plan to take another ice climbing class.
