Personally, I'm 20 Y/o lead 11's max boulder on 6's and really would just love to meet up and make more climbing pals! hope others find some awesome climbing partners on this thread also!

I climb at Planet Rock Madison Heights. Typically Tuesdays after 7:00pm and every other Saturdays with my 9year old son. My climbing partner is out for a month so I'd really to find a group or belay partner.
Also, we are trying to planning a trip this Grand ledge and Red River Gorge. Looking for group or someone who's interested.

Hey, fantastic!! I’ll be in Ann Arbor for about three weeks: May 10th till the end of the month (May 2019). I’d love to have climbing partners three or four days a weekish? I’m looking for someone comfortable lead belaying. I’d love to climb with you send me a message!

Hey All,

I'm looking for a lead partner to climb at Ann Arbor on Tuesdays and Thursdays. I can be at the gym after 6pm. I don't really care what grades you lead. I lost my lead partner when I took a job in AA and left my partner back in Madison Heights. Not having anyone to lead with sucks so let me know if you want to lead!

I'm at the AA gym tuesday/thursday/sunday from about 4:30-7:00 with my kids and am always happy to connect. Hard to keep a low profile with Ida around, I'm afraid. I tend to hang out with the bouldering dads unless my wife is there, but I'd always prefer to be on ropes.  

We're in the Red every other weekend, mix of trad and sport, and are always happy to have company.  Got a date with some routes at Eastern Sky Bridge Ridge this weekend!

Pat,

If I can get to the gym on time I'd definitely love to get some rope laps in. If my memory serves I think we've talked in the bouldering area a few times. If I get to gym early enough I'll connect with you. I'll also keep you in mind for the Red. I usually go 8-10 times per year and I'm always looking for motivated people to go down their with.

Hey Kyle!! I get every Tuesday and Thursday off work so that may just be perfect! Send me a pm about your schedule and hopefully we get to climb tomorrow :)

Hey Kyle...I'm terrible with names, but a quick facebook stalking and yep, I remember talking to you a few weeks ago.  Always happy to lead something and build some more endurance...slacked off over the winter and it's been a bit of a humbling start to the outdoor climbing season!

Hi all!

I'm in the mad heights location on Thursdays at 430. I'm looking for regular climbing partners (particularly lead climbing) on those nights and occasionally other nights too. I've amassed everything but a rope to get out of town for some sport routes. I'm definitely interested in heading to the red or the u.p. I've got to get outdoors at least once per year to keep the gym climbing motivated and inspired!

Thanks to Cris for getting this thread started. Good call!

Arne

Arne,
I’ll shoot for next Thursday at that time.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
