More information:
I live in Portland but come here for work sometimes. Interested in caving and canyoneering too.

Mostly I climb at smith rock (I say that like I get out there every weekend. not the case) and on basalt around portland. Been learning trad recently, discovering that gym climbing and crack climbing are entirely different skill sets.

Generally more interested in trad, multipitch and alpine. Don't understand bouldering, though it would probably help my climbing to do more
