More information:
For me, climbing is about doing aesthetic routes, appreciating the wild, natural places into which they lead, and simply having fun.

The main things I look for in a partner are enthusiasm and a good attitude. A newer climber who's fun to climb with is infinitely better than a veteran who's only into chasing grades and/or competing.

I'm solid, safe, and experienced, and I climb mostly trad and sport.

Locally, I'm occasionally looking for a partner for Seneca, the New, and the gym. Elsewhere, I'm occasionally looking for partners for Red Rocks, the Sierra (especially Tuolumne), and elsewhere in the west.

Starting out pitch 3 of Ecstasy, Seneca Rocks, WV  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, going 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
