Looking for a trad mentor near Denver

I am relatively new to the Denver area, and very keen on gaining some trad experience. My personal experience includes:

-climbing for about 4 yrs. I learned to lead/sport climb relatively soon after I started, though I havent been on a rope in about a year due to lack of partners/preference for bouldering over clipping bolts
-participated in a gear placement/anchor building course
-followed up a couple of easy routes (ie. overhang bypass on lower cathedral)

In terms of gear, I have everything required to sport climb (12 draws, slings, cordelette, atcs, biners) with the exception of a rope as I recently retired mine. I am certainly willing to invest in more down the road if I determine that it will be worthwhile. I am not going to lie and say I am a super bold or strong climber (boulder ~v3/v4), but I think I have a good enough head on my shoulders to pick up the skills relatively quickly if someone is willing to be patient and teach me. SO, if anyone is looking for someone to belay them up some moderates, and teach a few things along the way, shoot me a message.
