Im a beginner climbing and want to learn to lead trad. Me and my buddy are looking for advice/mentor to help us get into traditional climbing safely. We have all the gear just need a more experienced person to help introduce us safely.

If only there was EASILY SEARCHABLE AND ACCESSIBLE INFORMATION on this topic somewhere...

You've come to the right place! Of course finding a climbing mentor is allowed on here ;) It's the best way to learn in my opinion. Do you belong to a gym? That's also a great way to find someone interested in teaching you. I live in Denver and would be willing to go out with you guys sometime and show you a few things. Send me message if you're in the area

If you're in the Boulder area and free during the weekdays and are fine not committing to a whole day of climbing, I'd be willing to help out.

If you dont find anyone and money is no object - hiring a guide is always a great idea. If money is an issue you might try the CMC's Trad Leader course?
