Hi. I'm an experienced climber on ice, aid, rock. Just moved to Salt Lake City area. I can't pull very hard or move very fast for now. In the past I've lead trad 5.9s at Josh, Idyllwild, Lover's Leap, & Cardinal Pinnacle; 10s sport up to 11-; WI4+ and A3+. Climbed lightly in Alaska and Peru. But hand injury, grad school, and loss of partners have limited my chances to get out there, so at this moment I have almost none of my athletic ability and lead head. I don't want to exaggerate where my mind and body are at. I do love rope guns nowdays, I won't lie.
There are only a few 5.8 trad pitches I would lead off the couch now. If you like to climb really easy I can lead and make a day, or if you like to lead hard, I'm thrilled to TR/follow stuff and belay you on whatever.
I am technically expert and a very reliable safe partner. I do not mind at all belaying on climbs I can't follow. I've caught many falls. I've jumared on multi-pitch to make the route happen when the cruxes were too hard for me.
I'm a wilderness first responder and competent enough rope soloist that I haven't killed myself solo rope leading on big walls and a multi-pitch ice route. I've been on 10 big walls, led on 9. I've rapped El Cap from Thanksgiving Ledge with an 85-lb load (an interesting way to descend, but I'll stick to the East Ledges next time, thanks). I am very capable of self rescue (and I have done it) and could rig up partner rescue if need be (hopefully never).
I'm starting a job and will have Weds and Thurs off for now.
Thanks for reading and have a great time out there!
