Looking for a trad partner for next weekend 9/22, 9/23. I'll be camping at Estes Park, so RMNP or anywhere near by would be good. Experienced and safe. Will just have flown in from UK, so have a rack, rope, psyche . . .but no guidebook, no local knowledge and no climbing partner! Tricky for me to convert to trad USA grades, probably lead 5.10, but happy to second whatever.

Thanks, Kate

Maybe more so just tricky for you to acclimate....?

Make sure you drink plenty of water and eat good snacks,  drink when your not thirsty, and snack,take your time breathe right getting around

Hi Joe - thanks for replying looks amazing, unfortunately we are staying in Estes Park for the first couple of nights, and this would be a bit out of the way.

There's been some dusting of snow in the alpine recently. Hopefully weather cooperates for you, there's some great alpine climbs !

Bring snow gear

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
