I live in Minnesota and I in a ten week internship program for Costco and live just south east of Seattle Washington. Have been climbing indoors hard for the last 2 years almost and feel like this is a perfect opportunity for me to get some good outside climbing in. Im trying to fill up every weekend possible with sport climbing, bouldering and hiking. Don't have any equipment for climbing other than harness,atc, shoes so can help out by driving or something? Ready to enjoy this summer and have some fun.

matt, i live in Snoqualmie and enjoy climbing weekday nights, or afternoons Tuesday and Wednsday [my days off]. I have several great sport climbing areas in my backyard, maybe even a crack or two... we're headed up this afternoon. I mostly lead 5.8/5.10a trad/sport.

Im more looking for something for my open weekends but for sure will come check it out. Shoot me a text or call and we could maybe work something out for me to run over right after work?

FYI, I'm 23 years old and I climb around the 5.11/v5 range!

We live in Seattle and go fairly regularly to Exit 38 and other places in the summer. We have rope and quickdraws. We are thinking of going to Exit 38 (sport climbing) this Sunday. We lead about 5.9 or 5.10 outdoors, & will try harder stuff on toprope.
Where in Minnesota are you from? I'm looking for info on sport climbing around Duluth as I will be there for a few days this summer for my cousin's wedding. It sounds like there is lots of bouldering and some trad and toproping with natural anchors, but not a lot of bolted routes- if you have any advice, I'd be interested (though I think you said you mostly climbed indoor in MN).

Awesome thanks for the invite, Yeah Im totally down for going out climbing this Sunday. I honestly haven't climbed outside in Minnesota other than some bouldering at interstate park. But I'm sure they have some crazy stuff because its super nice there. Idk if you want to meet out there or car pool, I'm driving from Covington. Please feel free to call or text me and we can figure this out for this Sunday! Should be really nice out!

I'm in Canada today so I won't call or text. I will get back to you tomorrow regarding what time we might go. And I never heard of Covington before, but looking at the map it looks like carpooling wouldn't really make sense. It would be a detour for us or you, so better to meet at 38. You need a Discover Pass (state parks pass) to park there.

So our plan is Exit 38 Deception
(good directions here: www.mountainproject.com/v/exit-38-deception-crags--mt-washin>>> ) on Sunday leaving Seattle around 10 am, so arriving at the parking around 10:45. Deception has a VERY short approach hike so should not be hard to find us. I am tall with red hair and a pink climbing helmet and will be with 2 or 3 guys- we are bringing a rope or two and enough quickdraws. My car is a light blue-green 1st generation Prius.

I did also see this post in case you wanted to try Leavenworth instead- I have bouldered there but have never rope climbed there. www.mountainproject.com/v/leavenworth-area-climbing-partner->>>
Just let me know if you're planning to join us so that I know whether to look for you. I can text you my phone number separately as I'm not keen on posting it online- I get too many telemarketer calls.
