Hey! The title says it all.
I live 2 hours from The Gunks and 90 minutes from The Gap, two of my favorite places to climb. FYI- Stover, Allamuchy, Ricks, Watchung and Mills Reservations are at the bottom of my list as I have temporarily exhausted my interest in those crags. Willing to visit Ragged Mountain, Moc Wall, and the Powerlinez once the Access issue gets sorted out.
Up for following 5-easy Trad (5.7-5.8) and down for super easy leads (5.4 or less). And definitely interested in Ice Climbing (I have my own gear). I hardly visit the climbing gym and may only get to climb outside once or twice a month. So if youíre cool with doing fun, easy, laid back stuff then Iím your guy. Just note, Iím likely to be more of the follower as opposed to the leader. Not a ďnoobĒ by any means. Iíve been climbing consistently for over two years and took several private lessons to learn trad and multi-pitch before ever trying it with a regular partner. But definitely more cautious than bold.
I met just about all my partners through climbing websites and continue to climb with the same people to this day. Spouses, kids, chores, obligations, and lifeís demands often cause conflicts with scheduling so Iím always open to meeting more people. PM if interested!
