Hi everyone - I live in New York but learned to climb in Utah (lived there over 2 years). I am looking for fellow Mountain Projecters who'd like to climb at the Gunks with me this weekend. Unfortunately, I can't lead trad, but this is the year I want to learn and get my hands on as much protection as possible for the experience. I am comfortable following and cleaning. I lead sport and have a rope, quickdraws, and all the personal climbing equipment needed. I also have a car. I'm very interested in meeting more New York-based trad climbers and maybe, ideally, even a mentor who is willing to dispense trad leading wisdom! If you are interested in climbing this weekend, please let me know. Thank you!
