I'm going to school in Utah, but my parents recently moved to Fairbanks. I'm here for a few weeks and was hoping to find some people to climb with. I brought with me some basic gear, but rope and other things were inconvenient to bring. I confidently lead up to 5.10d and follow 5.11's. I am a safe belayer and climber. If this is considered spam I am very sorry, but if your looking for a partner give me a text, call, or email.
