Hello people on mountain project, I am new in Denver and looking to get in to the climbing scene. I have a fair amount of sport, trad, and bouldering experience from the east cost.
I dont know ANY climbers in Denver and really want to get some climbing in. So if anyone wants a belayer or whatever let me know.

If you are an experienced climber, meeting people through meetup would be sketchy at best. Meetup is generally the repository or n00bs and date climbers. If you're willing to teach and be freaked out on TR, meetup is for you. On the positive side, there are girls there.

If you want to climb, and you truly are solid, you'll have luck with this site and running into competent looking people at the gym or crag. It's easy to find partners here.

after the hard stuff, into cruiser hands.

+1 made the mistake of climbing with the meetup group in the past. Scary scary new people (that mean well) or socially awkward.

I'm typically free Tuesdays and/or Wednesdays if you're down to do some sport. nicelegs can vouch for me that I'm at least a little less sketchy than the meetup people. I hope.

PM me sometime if you want.

Coffee after freezing our asses off near James Peak.

Meetup is fine, but you need to interview everyone who is going to climb with you to see what their experience is. Oh, wait, you have to do that here too. Yeah, you have to do that everywhere.

Of course this site has better tools for reporting experience and climbing style.

Hey Nate,

I'm also an Asheville native and enjoy trad, sport, and bouldering. I work a standard week, but I'm free by 11 on Fridays. Weekends are always good. Hit me up.

I would place meetup as an option below starting a top rope self belay thread or soloing.

Here's how I handled a similar problem, having just moved to Boulder in August: I waited 32 years from when I first decided to leave NH, had a child, groomed her to be a knowledgeable sport and trad climber, then encouraged her to move to Denver a year and a half ahead of me.

Voila, a 25 year old rope gun who I can trust, molded in my own likeness.

Hey nate, welcome to co. I am a co native and a twenty + year climbing vet with all the gear. My usual climbing partner has switched to winter stuff. I am far from done climbing for the year. I'm in the Fort, but prefer climbing down south. Are you free tomorrow (sun)? Deke

I just moved down to the front range and my one climbing partner is moving to Atlanta for a job, so I'm looking to meet some more people to climb with. Right now my days off are Monday-Wednesday, in January my shift changes and I'll be off Thursday-Saturday.

Deke, I posted for a partner about an hour ago here. I haven't had any bites yet.

Do you want to get out? Send me a PM.
