I still haven't met many Bozeman climbers that are actually from Bozeman, but I know they're out there. I have Friday, Saturday, Sunday off almost every week, and I'm looking to get out. I climb 5.10/11 trad in the canyon, up to 5.12 on draws, and I'll lead my way up WI4 in the colder months. I'd love to meet someone who wants to get out regularly. I'm up for sport, trad, ice, and alpine. I'm even interested in developing some new routes or just projecting the hard ones that already exist. I live in Bozeman, have a double rack, ropes, and a truck. Hit me up if you want to climb.

Hey Chad. I will be a PhD student at MSU starting this fall. Ill be looking for a regular climbing partner. Im down for anything, though I prefer trad, alpine and ice. Im not as strong, but I'm looking to train up for bigger objectives and harder routes. I have my own gear for everything.

Sport: lead 5.11a
Boulder: v2-v4
Trad: lead 10's (if well protected) (5.7-5.8 if less well protected)
Ice: I'll follow anything, I'll lead WI2-3

I'm also looking to eventually get into ski mountaineering.

Message me if you are interested, and I'll follow up once I make the move in 2 weeks.

Thanks for the response Gabe. Hit me up when you get to town, and we'll get out on some rock.

Hi Chad. I'm a grad student here in Bozeman, and I'm always looking for more climbing partners. I lead 5.9 trad, starting to get into 5.10, and easy 5.11 sport. I'm pretty stoked on getting into the alpine too. Shoot me a message if you'd like to get out, my schedule is pretty flexible.

Hey man ,

We have chatted awhile ago about hitting up the Black Canyon. I have a friend who lives in Livingston, he is driving down thursday to meet me at vedauwoo for a weekend of splitters. Just thought I would see if you are interested. Plus he is a good candidate for a local partner. We have climbed together for nearly 10 years. I can send you his contact info if you are interested. . talk to you soon 3038879982

I wish I could make it this weekend, but I'm actually busy through Saturday. How was the Black Canyon btw?

The Black was awesome. Did a couple of great routes and one not so great. Looking forward to hitting it up again when the weather cools down. June is definitely hot. Not impossible to climb in shade but still Hot. When it cools let me know if you can make it down.

I live here in Bozeman. I'm an old guy, but still climb. I know where there are some projects to work on. Also bolts to clip.

I'm late to this thread, but looking for mostly the same as OP. Just back from injury, so def not crushing - prob .11 max. Trying to get in shape for ice!

I'm still climbing and looking for folks who want to get out. I'm heading up to Beehive this weekend, but shoot me a message about upcoming weekends. I'm also going to start the gym thing on weeknights since the days are getting shorter. See you out there.

Hey Chad,

If you feel like amending your plans and getting down to Ten Sleep for the weekend I'll be leaving tomorrow night or Friday morning and coming back Sunday. In any event I'm always down to climb here around town!

Anyone interested in Ten Sleep this weekend? I could head down Thursday night or Friday morning. The forecast is good.

I'm off every other week for 7 days starting next Wednesday. If your free October 5th through the 11th give me a shout. I'm pretty average just looking to get out and climb. Trad or sport. 5.6-5.8 lead or follow. Have gear. Josh 661-478-5134

Chad's a good guy. Spent the weekend climbing together in Ten Sleep. Even with his excesses of blubber he gave me soft, comfy catches.


You Bozeman cats are missing out

Haha...blubber makes everything softer.

I'll be around the 12th and 13th on my way to Helena if you guys are up for doing anything those days

Do you know anything about the climbing fest. I'd like to come out from Washington, but don't have a partner?

Chiatt Hiatt · · Bozeman, Mt · Joined Oct 2015 · Points: 85

There's usually a lot of folks who want to get out that weekend. Keep a thread going as the dates get closer, and you'll find a partner. I'll be climbing that weekend as well, just not sure where. Let me know what you're interested in getting on.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
