Just moved to Berkeley and looking for a partner. Currently lead ~5.6 trad, and want to get out on a regular basis to practice and up my game. I'm open to anyone at my level or a more advanced one that wants to mix in some easier stuff. I can follow up to .11 and definitely wouldn't mind following someone solid.

Hi Aaron,

I am out in Walnut Creek and started leading trad 5.6/7 last year. Also want to get out more and push myself further. I can comfortably follow trad .9, mid .10s sport--have a double rack, ropes, etc and am very safe. Let me know if you are up for a Tahoe, Yosemite or other session soon?

Hey Guys,

I'm happy to give you a tour of Mt St Helena sometime - heading up there this Sat with a friend - you are welcome to join.

Kevin, I'm super motivated to get out there. I'll send you a text tomorrow. Ed, I'd love to take you up on that offer this Saturday. What's the best way to get in contact with you?

Count me in! ...I'm open to climbing most grades, especially moderates, not leading much harder than 8's on gear and maybe easy 10 sport depending, following easy 10's. I just did a fun tour of NorCal climbing, so I have some recent familiarity and the guide books as well. Plenty of gear, safety minded and just like getting outside!

Take advantage of Ed's offer - great group of folks to climb with! Feel free to contact me, too. For starters, I'm available this weekend until around Tuesday. I may go to St. Helena this weekend, but not set in stone.

Take care!

Hey guys,

I live in East Bay and am looking for climbing partners as well! I lead 9-10s for sports and 7-8 on trad (still building my rack though)

I've got rope, draws, and am always happy to drive/carpool. Solid belayer as well. Down to climb this weekend or next either around the Bay or in Tahoe/Yosemite/Bishop. PM or shoot me a message 4153162538

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
