I'll be there from about May 25-June 15. I'm free to go anywhere in the country. Let me know!

What kinds of climbing do you like to do?

I guess if it's just short single-pitch it's not critical to climb at the same grade, but for multi-pitch some similarity counts -- so some hint about what difficulty you're looking for would help.

You may be "free" to go anywhere, but what practical means do you have? Like a car?

Myself, I focus on the southeast quadrant of France (and nearby Italy + Switz).
Around that time of year I hope for alpine terrain, but with more emphasis on rock than ice (tho I'm open to using skis for approach and descent). But lower warmer areas if the high stuff isn't in condition.

I keep getting stronger, and I keep hoping I'll start climbing harder than 6b outdoors, but I carry prusiks to get me thru following a short section which is too hard for me. And I happily climb routes much easier than that.

I normally have a car, and I use it to get me and my gear to someplace with good weather, on short notice.

I haven't done any outdoor climbing honestly. I'm a gym junkie and am looking to break that. I'll be in Western France, in the Arcachon area until late May, then I figure I can take the eurail anywhere. Will you be available then? I haven't done any multipitch, I've only done single pitch. But I'm always looking to start.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
