Hi all,

My love for climbing is evolving beyond bouldering and sport, and I am hoping to break into trad climbing this year. I have read a fair bit on the basics and purchased my first rack, but now I simply need to put in the mileage.

If anyone would be willing to let me follow, that'd be great! I'll be on the carriage road this afternoon bouldering with friends (and practicing placements on the ground), but would love to follow instead if presented the opportunity! 

Pm me and I will get back to you asap!

How about wed. this week?

A great way to start trad and trusting gear is aid on top rope.

I found a regular weekend partner so things are good! Sorry, I can't do weekdays, but thanks for the interest (and advice, will take it into consideration the next time I'm out there ^).

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
