I'm a 28 year old Swiss girl and I'm going to spend my summer vacation in US and Canada for climbing. After the first month, which I travel by myself, some friends will join me in July and August for Squamish. Now I am thinking about climbing in City of rocks the first month. I would like to do some Trad as well as Sport climbing in City of rocks from June 18th til July 10th.

I have not so much experience in trad, but am very motivated to learn it. Here in Switzerland I currently lead sportsclimbing around 5.9/5.10a. But I am also very psyched to get started in crack climbing.

Let me know if you are interested. I'm also flexible with the dates!

You will do fine with sport climbing in the City. Lots of sport routes in up to 5.10. You shouldn't have a problem finding partners. It will get hot there end of June. Get a camp site with shade. Ill be up there off and on through out the summer for a day or two.

Good luck, John

Hei alpinerocket, thanks for your tips. Maybe we can meet for a day. Let me know when you have time and you are psyched. I will be there for sure from 20 June til 4 July.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
