RE: [hiking-204] Rock Climbing

Aaron:  I don't think I can swing the commitment you are requiring, so I won't be able to offer myself as a climbing partner, but I would like to solicit your interest in doing a few Sierra peaks next summer.  The peaks would be "California Class 3" (YDS:  exposure such that a rope may be required, which means me...), and I need a climber-type to "haul my ass up there".  I can belay, set up belays, etc., and can climb up through[masked] or so, but have trouble on exposure.  If you are interested, keep it in mind.  I usually do a 2 week trip or so, typically backpacking into a base camp with day-hikes.

On a different subject, how did your Telescope Peak trip go (late October, from Badwater)?  I wish I'd felt up for the elevation gain required, but...

Off to visit my sister for the holidays; hope your Thanksgiving is good.

Anyone interested in rock climbing?
I looking for a partner who would like to develop a long term climbing relationship.  Age or gender are not a factor, but commitment is. Some experience would be good but a person committed to leaning will suffice.
Climbing is a sport of trust. Your life could depend on your partner to protect you in a fall. Part of trust is knowing your partner is committed to safety. I am a safe climber and serious about using proper technique. I would expect the same.
My proposal is to start working out in the climbing gym two to three days a week. When we are comfortable with each other we can take it outside climbing sport routes and on top rope.
There are initial costs.  You will need climbing shoes, a climbing helmet, a climbing harness and some basic hardware. I have ropes and climbing gear. I am qualified to lead and belay in the gym and on sport routes. I can lead belay and climb second on traditional routes.
If you are interested contact me and we can talk.
Best regards,
