This is a climber furnished 2 + 2 ground floor apt in a four-plex, close to the climbing gym, Red Rocks and Mt. Charleston. It's true this location is called the "Baby Ghetto", but persistent sweeps by L.V. Metro has cleaned the neighborhood up a lot. It's just friendly working class folks now. In fact it is the friendliest neighborhood I have lived in Las Vegas. Good freeway access for trips to Red Rocks, Mt. Charleston, even Utah.

2012, the 2 bedroom 2 bath unit I live in had a kitchen fire from the previous tenant. The landlord took the insurance money to undertake a complete renovation, but was required to bring the entire apartment up to current code. So new wiring, new carpet, European style cabinets, paint, new doors, new appliances, new A/C unit, new washer/dryer in apt, fireplace, approx. 975 Sq. Ft. the monthly rent is $600 and I average monthly utilities at about $165.00

The monthly cost for a roommate would be $385

I work from my desktop trading options in the stock market. Usually trading mornings from 5:00 to 9:00 A.M. - sometimes till 1:00 P.M. Rest of the time I am climbing, hanging out or pursuing some other outdoor activity.

There is a workout corner in the living room: perfect pull-up, free weights, hang-board, small climbing wall. The second bedroom ( about 10' x 10.5') has a queen size bed, wall to wall closet and a small work-desk in place

Internet is included without additional charge. No cable TV however.

Right now I am managing half the rent and utilities by hosting for Airbnb. I would prefer a more permanent room mate for 2016 at least. The apartment share is available beginning December 2015.

Far as habits: I'm quiet. My friends tell me to my face I am OK to hang out with...I eat a generally a healthy diet. I've been actively climbing over 35 years. Not a compulsive cleaner, but I try to keep things clean....counters are clean and the place gets regular vacuuming. I sometimes have overnight guests. The climbing gear and guidebooks reside in a dedicated wire shelf for easy access. I've been known to leave a pile of cams on the carpet. I can't remember the last time I partied.

I do have a cat. She's clean, quiet and friendly. The apartment building is located at Between Jones and Torrey Pines off Lake Mead Ave.

I am looking for preferably, a fellow rock-climber who is moderately quiet, neat and responsible to 1/2 share of rent and utilities. Absolutely No Smoking. No dogs: there just isn't room. Aside from studying trading I am planning several road trips this year.
