Hey MPers,

As the title states, I have just moved out to Vegas from Colorado and am looking for climbing partners and even job leads! 

Like many of us, climbing has influenced many of my life decisions. After spending nearly ten years across Colorado, the rising house prices and thirst for new adventures has brought me to Vegas. Long approaches and big trad lines interest me the most, but I can always enjoy a day of cragging too. You might have to drag me to go bouldering though haha. 

If anyone has job leads please reach out! My work experience mostly involves bartending in event/ stadium settings, ski resorts, and downtown Denver. I'm also interested in breaking into another career through a climbing gym, rope access/rigging, or guiding if possible. Any help is much appreciated. Thanks for reading, and I'm looking forward to connecting!

I'm fairly new to vegas and I'm always looking out for new partners. Send me a message if you want to get out sometime. So far I don't have a plan for this weekend, if you are free.

Hey Chad (and Ashort),
   I'm around RR for the next month or so and looking to link up with partners (once this rain dries out of course). Not very helpful on the job front, as I too am currently unemployed living out of my van, but I'm definitely up for climbing!

I have a partner for the weekend + monday but am free after that so let me know if you're keen, or have a driveway I can park in haha.

Best,
  Scott

Thanks for reaching out Scott. Unfortunately, I don't have a driveway for you but hit me up sometime this next week!

I think there is good money to be made washing them hotel windows on the strip, which is somewhat in line with rigging and all that.  Maybe someone on here knows more.  I think more than one local climber has been involved in that, if not had their own company doing it.

As for Vegas itself, and it's people, terrible place, worst climbing town in America, you have made a horrible mistake!

(Vegas cohort, I love you all! :)

There's a job post for this hanging on the bulletin board at Refuge right now. The window cleaning gig.

Hey Chad, I recently moved to Las Vegas from Colorado too (about 6 months ago). If you’re still looking for climbing partners feel free to contact me!
