I just moved to Laguna Niguel this past month. I want to start climbing outside, but I have the small issue of not knowing anyone. I have sport gear, and two 5 inch bouldering pads. I climb around 5.10-5.11/ V4-5. I just started my first full-time job so I'm looking to go out on weekends for bouldering or sport climbing.

Hey Joshua,

Welcome! Feel free to use my guest pass and we can work some problems with some gym friends. I know a few locals that Boulder, I'm familiar with crags around Socal, I like Trad but Sport and also Boulder sometimes. I know what it's like to move and not know a lot of people. My gym is also full of people your age and it's really close to your city. Anyway shoot me a PM if you want - David

David Fogel is an upstanding gentleman who always brings flowers to the first climbing date and has his hand steadfast in the brake side of the rope. I would and have trusted him with my life but I would never let him near to my women considering his suave personality and impeccable hygiene.

Howdy Josh.  I am always looking for potential outside partners.  I clamb at SenderOne indoors, so if you want to check it out, I can let you use my guest pass.  I am free most Saturdays, and am most interested in trad, but I can be convinced to climb sport.  Good luck trying to get me pebble wresting.  I have pretty much anything we would need in the way of gear.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
