More information:
I work for myself so I schedule my work around climbing. I'm married and my husband is not a climber, so I prefer to climb during the weekday when my absence is not as noticeable. Since I have to schedule work around climbing, I plan my calendar a week or two ahead of time; no spontaneous climbing trips.

Safety is my top priority and I ask that my climbing partners be safety oriented and be respectful when I raise safety concerns or back off from a climb when conditions may be unsafe. Helmet is a must and a hand should always be on the brake end of the rope regardless of the belay device used. I took a series of sport lead classes at the Upland Hangar 18 in January 2012 (12 hours of instruction including proper clipping, catching lead falls, and basic self-rescue) and I completed the SCMA Rock Climbing Safety Skills Course (climbing safety and self-rescue) in April 2014.

I began bouldering indoors regularly since 2008, top roping pretty consistently since 2011 both indoors and out, and leading sport outdoors since June 2012 (I try to get out at least one day a week, weather permitting). I usually belay with a Cinch but I am also familiar with using the ATC Guide. I seconded some trad routes between 2013 and 2014.

For sport, I lead confidently in the 5.9 range and I can usually finish a 5.10a lead with a few tries at the crux. I can follow up to 5.11a with assistance from my belayer. I'm always happy to belay a partner on more difficult routes.
