I am going to be passing through the Black Canyon of the Gunnison area between July 3-6 and am looking for a partner for a route or two. I've never been to the Black so am looking to do one of the classics, such as: Scenic Cruise, Checkerboard Wall, Russian Arete, Escape Artist, Comic Relief, Journey Home.

I have lots of experience with adventurous trad, multipitch routes and have been climbing for several years, and am looking for a partner with the same qualities. Given I've never climbed there, it would be ideal to find a partner who had climbed there before, although that is not necessary.

Edit: Yep, I am aware it can be hot in the Black in July. But I actually like the heat, and the lack of crowds it produces. So I am looking for a partner who is okay to climb on a hot day. We could target a north-facing route on the south rim too....


Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
