Finding partners is always a slippery proposition, usually I check peoples profile. Question.  When you post recent ticks on your profile, does that indicate what you led or do you include what you followed?

There are boxes to click to mark top rope, lead, etc when you enter your tick. When you click the "view all" on someone's page, you will see what they checked off, and any comments. Many people include partners in the comments, or what pitches they may have lead, if they hung, if they followed, anything else they wish.

I tick climbs I want to remember, usually for the people involved, more than the climb. My ticks are notes for myself, not a list for others. Some people tick everything they ever do, some tick nothing at all.

Best, OLH

It indicates what you want it to indicate.  For me, I have info like "Lead / Fell/Hung. slabby start. hard for grade," and "Follow. still awesome lead with heady exposure. the new(ish) bolt low is a confidence booster."

For you, the ticks indicate "One of the many four star routes here," or "FA 2011."

So you could get a pretty good idea of where and what I climb, how I climbed it, and how I felt about it, assuming I am not lyin.  In evaluating you, I would only see that you had a few FAs on climbs 6 years ago with no real info on the climbs.

Ticks on alpine climbs are good indicators of conditions. I don’t really use MP to meet partners, but the tick beta is super useful. 

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
