At least there'd be a fraction of the traffic here in the right area.

I asked about the double posts for years and the moderators/admins have no interest making it more clear or helpful. We just have to live with the double posts.

It's not even double posts anymore, people are literally ignoring the partner section.  Mind as well just close it.

At the time I posted this thread HALF (I counted) the threads in this section on the first page were partner finding requests.  That's disorder, by forum standards.

Anyone want to climb in the gunks on Thursday?

The Gunks? on Thursday, ?  It is Looking to be very nice weather, would you care to sample some climbing an hour to the south-east? Not a 'connect the chalk-dots' type of thing, Fresh stone, grit, dirt and hard sequences. B.O.B x3 ; Bring your own brushes, & beers n buds; other boulders (too).\;^7|.              ITS ALL GOOD ! (*)

  Check, The Smallz album of pictures, on my page                                                                                                                                                                          If anything ( not Avon, or that free-standing column ) looks good, get in touch, that is only about a 10th, of what is around here.

From what I understand, over 60% of the partner requests actually are not real people.  They are what, are known to the intelligence folks as "bots"!  These bots are fake people originating in Russia, created to wreck havoc on the hobbies of Americans.  The best thing to do is not overreact(Kevin)  but relax and continue to climb.  Stay strong America

If we can't post for partners, what are we going to talk about on this forum? Climbing grades and how 5.4+ at the gunks is AT LEAST 5.5 anywhere else? The indispenability of tricams on one single climb in the northeast and how this means carrying them on your harness at all time is mandatory  (yes even while bouldering in the gym)?  Or how about the "I know there are going to be black flies, but like can anyone give me an estimate of exactly how many per square meters I can expect (+/- 10)"?  

It is a shame this forum gets clogged up with partner posts, detracting from the important stuff!

Don't forget that someone left one scarpa shoe on the 2nd pitch of something at Cathedral, would be great if someone could return it.

Clearly Kevin is the only one around here who gives a shit about the rules.

Can you provide me a  link to these so-called rules. Thanks Dad.

(Also does anyone else find it amusing that the entire Eastern seaboard, plus all of "the south" gets lumped into one giant Partner Finder Forum, while California gets a north/south split, and CO/UT/NV each get their own?)

I need a partner for Wednesday from about 11:30 until dark.  Any interest?
