|More information:|HI. I am new to this, so sorry my profile is so vacant. It should improve as I get used to the site. I have been climbing trad with my dad since I was a little kid, so about 15 years? I am only just now getting into it seriously. This summer, I have done my first trad leads, up to 5.9 so far. Endurance is lacking this summer, but improving every week as I have taken up bouldering, indoor and sport climbing.
I would like to climb halfdome, yosemite falls, and el cap. Though, I am no where near strong enough or skilled enough to do them, I hope to complete them in the next year or two, so I will constantly be looking for people to climb with and learn from.
