More information:
The main things I look for in a partner are enthusiasm and a good attitude. I'm solid, safe, experienced, and I'm equally open to experienced and newer climbers. I climb both trad and sport, and I can supply ropes, rack, and draws.

Locally, I'm occasionally looking for a partner for Seneca, the New, and the gym. Elsewhere, I'm open to meeting for Red Rocks, Tuolumne and/or the Valley, or other interesting places across the U.S.

If you've read this far, shoot me a note and maybe we can climb together ;^)

Starting out pitch 3 of Ecstasy, Seneca Rocks, WV  There's one short rap on the descent from Angel Food Wall that can be done to bypass a bit of down-climbing.  Sherri on the final pitch of Tele-vision / Tunnel Vision  After pitch 4 of Tele-vision, the route joins Tunnel Vision by goes up the chimney then left  Pitch 3 goes up and left past the bolt, follows the crack for a while (solid trad placements), then eventually the next bolt appears up and left
