Hey all! 

I'm moving up to Tacoma from Flagstaff, AZ this August. Most of my experience is with sport climbing, but I have started leading easy-moderate trad this last year and could imagine getting more into it if the access/rock quality is better for trad than sport up there. 

I would love any and all suggestions for getting established climbing-wise in the area (eg- suggestions for finding good partners, recommendations for guidebooks or sources of beta, etc). 

Much appreciated!

Cirque climbing gym in Lacey is good.
