Hi, 

I'm visiting from England and am hoping to get as much climbing as possible done in my spare time. I will be based near Table Rock, NC for the most of my stay and hope to head out to Red River Gorge, KY for a couple of days at some point (I've heard wonderful things).

I'm mostly a sport climber but have been dabbling in trad recently. A competent second, but I'm hoping my location whilst in the US is also going to force me out of my comfort zone and start leading a lot more trad.

Happy to belay on anything, will most likely be leading around 5.9-low 5.10s sport and lower leads on trad.

Also have no idea on how many nuts/ cams/ hexes I can get into my suitcase before the airline weight limit is reached! Can also trade cups of tea and cadburys for belays (if requested in advance)!

Hey, Francesca!

I'm going to be traveling around North Carolina, West Virginia, Tennessee, and Kentucky for a few weeks from August 20th to September 13th. I have absolutely no plans and am just looking for some fun people to climb with!

I lead .11+ sport and, like you, have minimal trad experience, but I have a full rack and would love to give it hell!

If you want to contact me at any time during that period I would love to meet up and climb. (443) 786-5142

Happy climbing!

Bill

I'm going to be based right by Table Rock so that would be fantastic.

I usually try to make it tout red river gorge most weekends and climb about the same grades. If you need a partner around thenoon shoot me a message
