Hi guys!

I'm a 24 year old beginner climber. I started in May 2016 on the west coast but have taken the last few months off due to my climbing partner moving away. Now I have started an internship in upstate New York and am looking for a gym buddy through the end of March. The closest gym to me is Rock Sport NY in Queensbury. I hope to get a membership and go at least twice a week. My days off are Friday and Saturday. I get off work at 12 (because I start work at 3:30 in the morning). So I'd love to climb with someone that can do weekday afternoons, as well. I have not yet lead climbed, and lead belayed a friend in Yosemite twice but have never experienced a fall. When I was climbing 3 days a week consistently I was top rope climbing 10a-d fairly cleanly, and messing around on 11a's for fun. I now need to get my confidence (and strength) back and am doing 9's and 10a's. So a patient partner is key. I hope to hear from you soon so we can go climb!


Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
