Moved to Europe and am intent on making a return to alpine climbing (all kinds) and steep skiing following a broken ankle and working in an office. I am flexible, but I tend to prefer weekend/long weekend trips via Geneva. Cheers!

Hey Paul, I'm also working in Europe (south of France), and also looking for adventure partners in the Alps this summer! Areas like Les Ecrins would be best for me for weekend trips since it's a reasonable drive from where I'm based, but Geneva could work too on a long weekend. I have 10+ years of mountaineering/skiing/climbing experience, and I'd be up for easy-moderate alpine rock routes, sport climbing/multipitch up to 6a (5.10b) or trad routes to 5.7 or 5.8.

Hi Paul,

I am riding my bike from Spain up to Chamonix this June/July, and am looking for climbing partners in the area.  If this post is still up I will contact you when I am closer.

Hey all! I'm living in Chamonix and have about half of every week off. Climb about TD on alpine, 5.12a sport and 5.11ish trad, tons of technical 6000ers in Peru and Nepal as well. I've got all gear, so if anyone is in the area and wants to climb send me a message. I should be here all summer.

All -- Thank you, I greatly appreciate your responses. I just got poor news from my orthopedic surgeon, so I will have to wait until July/August unfortunately. But I will check back in in about a month, when I should have more clarity on what might work. In terms of difficulty, my preferences are probably closer to Julia's, but I would not be opposed to joining Andy or Cissa on any fitness days where you're not pushing your grade.
