Hello Durangoers (Durangelos? Durangans?),

I'm new to town, and I'd love to meet some climbers for trad routes. I have a lot of experience on California granite and Red Rock sandstone, but am new to the local geology. If you're looking for a partner to do hardish trad routes in the Black, the Creek, or some super secret local area that I dare not even mention here, let me know. Also looking for beta on general town stuff like coffee, bars, etc. Thanks!

1.Durangatangs 2. Welcome to town!! 3. Come and climb where people ACTUALLY hang....like Golf Wall! Always a crew in mornings and afternoons and don't waste time on the Girl Scout wall on the left (wayyy ratchet) And go more than once cause most people go once and then cry and never come back. Or....Cascade Canyon - GWall level 5 plus dirt. Bonus - stare at bikini clad titties on shivering pasty tourists that come clambering out of the creek. Check out Sailing Hawks! Sweet bouldering and retarded college kids puffing weed smoke in your face! Some old people climb up at East Animas I think but those people don't mingle with the strong climbers FYI. Coffee and breakfast hit up Doughworks for burritos or Bread for some pastries that will go well with your diarrhea.

if you are a trad climber go to East A or, for more adventurous trad go to pine river trad. if you want to do some sport climbing, the better climbs are at golf wall, but in the summer it tends to be an oven, so for shady sport climbing go to fume wall. it is also limestone, and the greatest part is, you spend more time getting your harness and shoes on than you do getting to the wall from your car so that means more time spent climbing. oh and if you are looking for granite, the only place in town is lemon reservoir, which is mostly sport

Interesting because the strongest climbers in Durango climb at East Animas all the time. Todd you must be a Troll?

Fubar:
I am also new to Durango. I moved from SLC about 4 months ago.

I'm primarily a trad climber as well, with >20 yrs experience.

I'm also trying to figure out the local scene, I'd love to get into the Black once it cools off, and I'm always up for Creek/towers/Zion. Let me know if you'd like to get out.
