Hey Everyone,

I'm looking for extended partners who are free to climb anytime and anywhere as that is my current situation. I'm posting up in Denver at the moment but since I'm dirtbaggin I have no ties to a location, so I'm willing to travel and stay for a week or longer. I've got plenty of gear and ropes for bouldering, sport, and trad. I'm most interested in continuing to focus on leading trad and multi pitch routes because that is what I've had the least practice.

As a native to Cincinnati, OH most my experience comes from sport climbing in The Red River Gorge. I've been climbing recreationally for about 6 or 7 years and passionately for the last 3 years. I like to climb (and belay) as safely as possible but strive to push the limits of my comfort zone. I comfortably lead sport routes up to 11c or so and feel solid on trad 10's and lower 11's but have yet to lead them lol.

Since February I have been on the road traveling to different climbing destinations to gain knowledge and experience in rock types and climbing styles I've not been exposed to yet. Stone Fort, Austin, Hueco Tanks, Enchanted Tower, Indian Creek, Eldo... It's been quite the ride so far! Rest days normally consist of exploring towns or trails, mountain biking, slacklining, longboarding, Or being a total sloth. O ya, and I love eating healthy so I'm always cooking up something tasty.

The point is that I'm here to camp near and climb on some epic CO lines. I would like to find a knowledgeable and safe partner (preferably unemployed and dirtbaggin as well) to show me to their favorite destinations! Haha, is that too much to ask?

Otherwise, you'll see me cruising the partners page more regularly. But I've found that becomes very tiresome when your trying to climb 4 days a week! So, Don't hesitate to give me a shout when you need a partner on the fly!


Thanks!

-Michael

Cool, thanks Tony.

Mr. Clean - Devils tower sounds fun. looks like it's about 6 hours away from where I am. I could probably head out tomorrow afternoon (waiting for an online order due to arrive). Are you there now? What's the word on camping, is it free?

I'll do some research on the area and let you know asap!

Hey Michael, if you end up staying at the tower an extra day I'll be getting there wednesday evening (5/22) to climb thursday with Mr. Clean and another mountain project connection.

P.S. Stoked on your lifestyle man, I'm also a traveling dirtbag climber ski bum, except I work for a couple weeks every month or so.
