Hi Everyone! My friend Matt and I are headed to Utah next week, and we are looking for a guide. We would be willing to give you a solid 2 days pay + food and beer for 2 days of showing us around, leading some moderate stuff for us, and teaching us as much as you can.
I lead easy trad and my friend Matt is newer to climbing, but strong and ambitious. I'm an east coaster, so multi-pitch trad is a real treat for me. That being said, we would be most interested in long and easy trad routes.
We will be in Moab next Wednesday the 15th and Thursday the 16th, then we will be in Zion on Friday the 17th and Saturday the 18th. These dates are flexible and we can adjust to your schedule if need be. If you or anyone you know is a solid trad climber and wouldn't mind showing some noobs around for extra cash, please get in touch or put us in touch. Obviously if you ever for some unknown reason left Utah to climb in the mid Atlantic region, please get in touch and I can show you around some decent spots (New River Gorge, Seneca Rocks, etc.). There's actually some decent stuff out here.
I work for a guiding company in zion. I can take you out through them. I guide Multi-pitch trad and teach courses.I agree that Pirate guides are a bad deal. they do not have insurance and give all of the outfits that work within the rules and framework a bad rap. if your really interested please check out our website.
