I'm headed up to the PAC NW and BC for a few weeks and am looking for partners for any destination where the weather is agreeable. I am super excited to get back to Trout Creek and check out Index (rained out last two times). I know Trout Creek gets hot, but I'm game to hike in early and chase shade to the N wall early afternoon; it worked well last year in 100+ temps.

Also, would be interested in Smith, Leavenworth, or any locales that come highly recommended. I'm game for multi-pitch or cragging, sport or trad, possibly alpine depending on your experience/competency. Don't really care about grades, as long as its fun and you're safe (but would love to get on some 10s/11s). We can even just trade belays.

I've been climbing 10 years and am super safe and laid back. Rope, rack, and ride, and stoked to get out!

Hey Paul, I'm going to be at Smith tonight(Wednesday 22nd) through sat or sun. I'm a lower grade climber than you but keen to get on whatever at Trout or Smith. Lead 5.8+ on gear. Follow harder.

If you're looking to check out Index this weekend I'm looking for a partner! Weather's looking good so far!

I'm just breaking into 9s at Index but can follow up to low 11s.

Hey there. I'm actually heading to Smith Rock tomorrow afternoon 6/24 til Sunday 6/26, will either be staying at the Bivy or possibly Skull Hollow campground (haven't been to either so I don't know which to choose!) I have a small group I'm planning on climbing with this weekend so far, me, another girl, and a guy, but the more the merrier, they are both also people from Mountain Project. Though, Saturday night I may end up driving back to Bend to go watch the Bend Outdoor Games bouldering comp, and depending on how friendly I get with the other MP climber buddies I make, may even invite people back to my place to enjoy my hot tub in Bend haha feel free to text me at 301-802-9846 if you wanna join in on the fun :)

Anyone climbing Smith or even Index this coming Friday through Sunday? Get in touch if you need a partner.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
