I'm looking for some new climbing partners in the Seattle area for this summer season. My main goals are the bigger alpine rock climbs of the region (WA Pass, Enchantments, Squamish) but I also enjoy sport climbing at Little Si/Equinox and trad cragging at Index. Generally I'm working 5.12+/5.13- sport climbs, 5.11+/5.12 trad climbs, and am most motivated by big climbs like Let it Burn, The Tiger, Thin Red Line, etc. So it would be great to find someone who can hold their own on those so we can push each other and do some amazing climbing!

I'm a weekend warrior but I can take occasional 3-day weekends or mid week afternoon/evening sessions at Little Si.

Cheers! -James

Hey James,

I moved to Seattle last summer. Also looking for partners for harder routes, and it sounds like we have similar tastes. I'd say I'm probably climbing a bit shy of your level (5.12 sport, 5.11 trad), but I do well with a partner who will push me to climb harder. I'm pretty stoked on Index after getting a  taste last summer, and I have some goals in WA pass, etc. as well. 

Best,


Dan

p.s. Heading to Smith Rock this Thur-Sun, but I have lots of weekend/weekday afternoon time in May.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
