Relatively new climber (off and on for 2 years) looking to get out and climb anytime, anywhere in the area, with anyone who knows what they're doing. Hit me up! I do have basic equipment, but no rope. I am familiar with basic techniques and knots, but nothing terribly advanced or fancy.
But my schedule is currently WIDE OPEN as I am visiting family here along the front range. I have transportation and can meet you anywhere within a reasonable distance, but I am not familiar with climbing locations in the Longmont area, so may need to carpool or get directions from you.
I am especially seeking to go climbing with people who are more experienced than I and can offer me a challenge, advice (teaching), and help grow me as a climber (and help ensure I don't do anything dumb and hurt myself). I love climbing and love being around other climbers. I am an open and humble climber who is open to being taught new things and exploring the sport. I REALLY want someone to show me something about trad climbing and teach me that art form, seriously. So if you're a trad climber who feels like having a newer climber in tow, I am there in a heartbeat.
Also, if you're into slacklining I am super down with that and have all the necessary equipment to set up a line. I could do that for hours, so if you share that interest let's hang out!
NOTE: I don't usually carry a guidebook or a map...SO I am not terribly sure about the difficulty rating of most things I've climbed as silly as it sounds. Even when I have known the rating it obviously hasn't mattered enough to me to remember. The difficulty ratings I've noted on my profile are a modest guess; I tried to be modest so as not to falsely advertise my ability even though I am uncertain of the difficulty ratings of my climbs. My GUESS is that the hardest thing I've ever attempted (not completed) was a 5.10 and the hardest thing I've actually climbed was a 5.9, but this was all top roping. I have only been exposed to lead climbing once and the one route I practiced leading on was a 5.5 (and I did it no prob, it was just to get the hang of leading). Anyway, there's the most honest depiction of my skill level I can provide.
