My climbing partner and I are looking for some experienced climbers to help show us the ropes at the RRG. We have tried a few G rated 5.3-5.6 routes and I think are pretty safe but it's hard to know until you take a fall.  We are planing on heading down every couple of weekends and are driving from Dayton, Ohio. If anyone wants to help keep some Noobies from dying let me know.

headed down on the 20th for the week before memorial weekend crowds roll in.

Yeah me and my partner have a good amount of gear. We are going to be down there starting the 24thl but were going to have a bunch or less experienced and non climbers with us so we will probably stick to sport climbing this trip. I will PM you my number and would definitely be interested in doing some more trad down there.

Feel free to PM me as well.  We're down with our kids about every other weekend through the end of fall and I'm always happy to have someone else along to help carry my rack.  

We'll be there over memorial day weekend, probably mostly climbing trad if it's busy.  

Don't climb that hard, but we can definitely help you not die.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
