More information:
I'm looking for partners both locally to (Seneca, the New River Gorge, maybe the Pittsburgh gym) and occasionally in the west (Tuolumne and throughout the Sierra, Red Rock, ...).

The main things I look for in a partner are enthusiasm and a good attitude. Pulling hard has its place and can be fun, but there's a lot more to climbing than pushing grades.

I'm solid, safe, experienced, and I'm equally open to experienced and newer climbers. I climb both trad and sport, and I can supply ropes, rack, and draws.

If you've read this far, shoot me a note and maybe we can climb together ;^)

There's one short rap on the descent from Angel Food Wall that can be done to bypass a bit of down-climbing.  Sherri on the final pitch of Tele-vision / Tunnel Vision  After pitch 4 of Tele-vision, the route joins Tunnel Vision by goes up the chimney then left  Pitch 3 goes up and left past the bolt, follows the crack for a while (solid trad placements), then eventually the next bolt appears up and left  The quirky anchor atop pitch 1 of Tele-vision
