PNW partner this summer

I'm looking for partners this summer! I'm new to this part of the world and hoping to get out and explore the area. I am comfortable leading sport moderates and have a good amount of multipitch experience. I am really hoping to make the jump to trad this summer and am hoping to get some alpine experience as well. I'm also happy to get out cragging/climb easier stuff/follow harder things. Just excited to get out!

I have a 8 days on/6 days off schedule and a good set of wheels, so I'm willing/wanting to travel. I'm in the market for a laidback and safe partner . If that sounds like you, drop me line!

Certainly well-positioned. Enjoy and feel free to give a shout if you're ever down in the Gorge.

Hello Sarah,

I can't help with Trad or Alpine and haven't done any multi-pitch yet, but sport I'm pushing into 5.10a leads and can probably manage a 5.10c follow. Very safe climb & belay, super comfortable leading/setting anchors/cleaning. Plenty of equipment for anything bolted.

I'm off Monday-Wednesday so if you ever want to get out to a crag for a day climb let me know! I also have a car and very willing to travel anywhere within 3-4 hours of Seattle on short notice to check out a new crag.

Hey Sarah,

I'm also new to the Washington area (just moved to Ellensburg), and am also looking for some people to climb with.  I mainly climb sport, but have experience with easy trad. I'm free this week and next if you're down to checkout some crags! Just let me know.

Hi. I am experienced in trad and looking for a partner for Index this Wed. Any chance you are free and want to check out Index?

Hey y'all, anyone interested in climbing tomorrow or Thursday? Would love to get out to climb at Index, exit 38, possibly Leavenworth. Let me know!

Hey Sarah (And all),
I'm down in Tacoma work odd days/have off days off, so I'm always looking for more climbing partners.   I'm comfortable leading 10a or so.  Will follow up to low 11s.  Very little experience with trad, but looking to learn like you.   Also love to boulder,  but prob only at v3 or so outdoors at the moment

Hey all
I have similar experience as Sarah: moderate multi pitch sport, ski mountaineering and following on some alpine trad routes. I currently live in Marblemount and am looking for some solid summer partners. I especially want to learn and become comfortable trad climbing (will supply the beer!) I have an 8 on 6 off schedule as well, hit me up! 248 238 6996

Hi Sarah,
My wife and I are in mt Vernon an would be down to climb. We are both not working at the moment for varrying reasons, grad school summer for her and being a bum for me, so we can climb anytime. I also climb more often than her and am often in need of a partner. We climb sport and trad but mostly trad. We can also get into the alpine!
Let us know if you are interested.

Hey Sarah, I'm in Twisp and would love to climb with you sometime in Mazama or WA Pass. Also check out Alpenglow Collective to help find climbing partners.
