In Durango through 7/25 hoping for partner for trad (maybe alpine?). Sport too. First year climber with good fundamentals. 5.9+ in gym; comfortable following 5.8-ish out doors. Learning to lead. Have basic trad rack; can provide rope if needed. 55 year old Lit. Prof with nothing to prove. (Not the language police, promise). Good fitness (retired from bike racing last year). Eager/grateful to learn from experienced safe climber.
