Looking for Casual Partners

About me: I'm 39, work as a tree climber live in the Wash Park area. I'm looking to get out on nice days on weekends, mostly. I prefer trad but will clip bolts. I'm rusty - it's been a couple if years since I climbed rock: maybe leading solid 5.8 but potentially harder routes, I don't know. I used to be a hardcore, obsessive climber about 10, 15 years ago; I worked briefly as a guide, spent a summer in the Valley. Now I'm a little older and a little fatter and just looking to do some casual climbing. I've got a beautiful, shiny new rack and everything else except a partner.

I'd like to do some cragging and, depending, then multi-pitch trad climbs; I love Eldo, Vedauwoo, Lumpy, South Platte. No beginners, please.

Hi Ian: You can put me on your list of folks to contact when free time and good weather align. Best, Tim

Hey Ian
Very similar situation here. Climbed a lot but life/career has interfered the last few years. I'd like to get out too, been a desk jockey lately so may be in worse shape than you! Add me to your list though, have very limited wall time in CO but varied around the country prior to moving to the Denver area.

Hey all.  I'm keen to get out.  Ian, similar story, but lived in Banff, Canada.  Rehabbing from shoulder/back situation looking to get on trad or sport, probably nuthin above 5.8 eldo at the moment.  Up for Lumpy.  Prefer to climb during the week but willing to get out on weekend if need be.  Anyone up for tomorrow any time after 10:30?

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
