I am looking for a regular gym lead climbing partner, with outside trips whenever possible. My regular climbing buddy had to move home for a few months for a family illness, so I'm stranded. Lead up to 11b (10c outside), belay up to 5.14! I'm a member at VW, but like to mix it up with day passes to SBP. Am considering reactivating my frozen membership at SG Ballard if only because there is more bouldering there, and it looks like I'm facing more solo days. I'm definitely more interested in leading! Also have gear to get outside to E32/38, Leavie, Vantage, etc. Let me know if you are down to take some whips, swap beta, fall off some boulders, and maybe grab a beer after!

Hey Ryan. I'm also looking for a regular partner, I have a membership at SG Ballard and am bored out of my mind of the autobelays. I work in Ballard and am mostly looking to climb weekday afternoons after work, but always up to get outside on the weekends as well. I climb 5.10ish in the gym. Give me a shout if you want to meet up sometime.

Hi Ryan,

I am also a member at Vertical World and looking for more climbing partners. I'm working my way leading 5.10 on both trad and sport. I'm free to climb outside most weekends and some weekdays. Feel free to contact me.

Hi Ryan and Amalia,

I'm looking for weekday climbing partners for the Exits (38, 32) and Index.

I have Thursdays and Fridays off (starting next week) if you want to hit the Exits or VW.

I'm hoping to get out to one of the Exits tomorrow (7/6) for some sport climbing if anyone is interested. Roughly 10am-4pm time range.

I'll actually be there at the Far Side, but won't be there until 5.

Hey Ryan. I have a membership at VW but havent been signed off on leading in the gym yet, but I have plenty of outdoor experience with lead belaying/cleaning trad/multipitch follows. Im a chicken when it comes to leading and lead sport 5.7 (but top rope 5.9s-10As). I also have no problem belaying you on harder things even if I cant follow them sometimes (as long as youre willing to set up some easier ones as well). I work 3 days a week and that gives me 4 days off every week for climbing, hiking, backpacking, etc. My schedule changes week to week though so my days off arent consistent (nurse schedule). Let me know if you are interested in climbing sometime. Heading up to Squamish later today for the weekend :)

I'm in town for a few weeks this summer and I'd love to get some leads in at VW tomorrow (7/9) any time. I'm a safe, experienced, and enthusiastic climber (and belayer!). Let me know if anyone's down to swap a few catches at the gym. I could also go morning or mid-day on Tuesday (7/11).

I may be heading there tomorrow (Sunday) afternoon /evening around 4-5 if you want to get some climbs in! Do you have your lead card there? Please say yes I hate doing that test.
