This is a climber furnished 2 + 2 ground floor apt in a four-plex, close to the climbing gym, Red Rocks and Mt. Charleston.

This location is called the "Baby Ghetto", but persistent sweeps by L.V. Metro has cleaned the neighborhood up a lot. It's just friendly working class folks now. In fact it is the friendliest neighborhood I have lived in Las Vegas. Good freeway access for trips to Red Rocks, Mt. Charleston, even Utah.

The monthly rent is $600 and average monthly utilities over 12 months at about $180.00. In July the utilities ran $184 and August I expect about $200. They will start to go down in October.

The monthly cost for a roommate or couple would be $390

I work from my desktop trading options in the stock market. Usually trading mornings from 5:00 to 9:00 A.M. - sometimes till 1:00 P.M. Rest of the time I am climbing, hanging out or pursuing some other outdoor activity.

There is a fishing tackle table on one side and a workout corner in the living room: perfect pull-up, free weights, stay-ball, hang-board, small climbing wall. The second bedroom (about 10' x 10.5') has a queen size bed, wall to wall closet and a small work-desk in place. You have your private bathroom in the hallway just outside the bedroom door. There a washer/dryer combo in the utility room. The kitchen is equipped to make a healthy meal for at least 4 people. I have a nice wok and pot for pasta. We divvy the common the space equally.

High Speed Dual Band Wireless Internet is included without additional charge. No cable TV however.

Right now I am managing half the rent and utilities by hosting for Airbnb. I would prefer a more permanent room mate for what's left of 2016 and into 2017 at least. The apartment share is available long term from September 1, 2016. Long term means to me at least 4 months.

If you are interested in only a short term share then access my link on Airbnb. On the Airbnb site you can read what former guests have said about staying here.

Far as habits: I'm quiet. I use headphones for any listening I might do. My friends tell me to my face I am OK to hang out with...I eat a generally a healthy diet; not many fried foods. I've been actively climbing over 40 years. Not a compulsive cleaner, but I try to keep things clean....counters are clean and the place gets regular vacuuming. I sometimes have overnight guests/on the road climbing partners (I have a futon or thermarests for them). The climbing gear resides on dedicated wire shelves and guidebooks in a bookcase for easy access. I've been known to leave a pile of cams on the carpet. You can also. I can't remember the last time I partied.

I do have a cat and now a kitten. They're clean, quiet and friendly. The apartment building is located at Between Jones and Torrey Pines off Lake Mead Ave.

I am looking for preferably, a fellow rock-climber or a couple who is moderately quiet, neat and responsible to share 1/2 of rent and utilities. Absolutely No Smoking. No dogs: there just isn't room. Aside from studying and trading I am planning several road trips this year and next year.
