I'm new to Salt Lake and looking for local climbing partners. I just moved from Brooklyn, NY and am a freelancer (so I have a pretty flexible schedule). I've climbed a few times already in Big and Little Cottonwood and am most comfortable following trad. I'm sure I'd be even more comfortable following sport (but I haven't done that yet).
I have all the basics in terms of equipment (including a 60m rope) but no lead gear. I climb up to 5.10 in the gym, but outdoors I'm more of a 5.8 climber. I like climbing with more experienced leaders (since my outdoor knowledge is not super extensive). I've done most of my climbing in the Gunks in Upstate NY (which just means I'm a wussy when it comes to vertical crack). But, I'm hoping to change all that now that I'm here!
Anyhow, please send me an email if you'd be interested in climbing together. I like climbing in the afternoons during the week and anytime on weekends. I'm also up for road trips down south or wherever.
As for other interests, I'm a photographer and I also ski and am looking to get back into mountain biking (always looking for people to do that too)!
