I climb mostly at my indoor climbing gym at mission cliffs on Harrison and 19th in San Francisco. On an average day I do 5 or 6 climbs there ranging from 5.9 to 5.10b and sometimes a 5.11a. I am not presently climbing as much as I'd like to.
I started in 2005 at a climbing wall at university. I am comfortable climbing 5.10s and the occasional 5.11a when Im not too tired. Indoors I like top rope over bouldering and enjoy climbs that need good balance skills over just raw strength. I have climbs once outdoors in the adirondacks (where a guide multipitched a lead four pitches) and I followed him up. My best so far. The last section was a crack 5.9 but mostly 5.7 or 5.8 till then.
Following all basic rules of tying in and having a good fail safe strategy at all times. Most importantly I try to get m communication sorted out with my belay partner. Redundancy is a life saver

Hi there ... I recently moved to the bay area from the east coast. I climb occasionally at mission cliffs on Harrison but am looking for outdoor climbing experience.
