I started climbing last year indoors and outdoors. My husband is the more experienced and dedicated trad climber. Thus far, I have only been outdoor climbing a handful of times and when I did, I only seconded his routes. Most of our climbing has been in the UK, but we climbed in the States for the first time this summer at the Gunks.
I am a graduate student at UConn and waiting for my husband's papers so he is able to join me in the US. In the meantime, I would like to keep up with my indoor climbing at least once a week. Central Rock Gym in Glastonbury is opening very soon, and it would be fantastic if I could climb with someone there. As a UConn student, I also have access to the climbing wall on campus. As small as it is, it provides a place to climb when timing is restrictive and doesn't permit the roundtrip drive to Glastonbury. So...even better if you're a fellow student or member of the UConn community that would be interested in climbing at both places. I was climbing 5.8s and some 5.9s (with a bit of work) at NJ Rock Gym.
