I'll be leaving Truckee for the eastside for the first two weeks of July and would love to link up to climb 7/2-7/11. I've only climbed a few times in this area and am open to swapping leads on classics in the 5.8/5.9/10a range.
I lead on gear at 5.9, follow into the 10’s and aid into the 11's. Just summited Shasta. I have a 70m, a single of ultralights w/offsets and aid gear, and have on offer a safe belay, warm smiles, vegan snacks and adamant c'mons!
Oh, and the obvious-- helmets, back-ups, safety checks, the whole shebang. I've got my WFR, listen to a lot of Sharp End and wholeheartedly want to keep hard charging til I'm old and gray. Safety first, second and third. Climb on!
p.s. Bonus points if you have learned self-rescue techniques and want to incorporate practice into a climbing day and/or also want to combine climbing with riding Mammoth Mountain in the early AMs, single track trails and/or going bc touring (or combining it all into some crazy multi-modal crusher day).
***Note about finding climbing partners from a woman's perspective: It is REALLY helpful to see replies w/complete profiles (googleable/cross-referenceable photo, full name, email...). Transparency about who you are outside of the MP-world really helps kick-off building trust =).
Sorry I know you posted for Mammoth/Eastern Sierras. I'm looking for Aid/Trad partner for the Valley or Tuolumne Jul 10th-12th. We both lead up to 5.9 trad. Just in case you would consider meeting in Tuolumne?
p.s. I can send you my Facebook profile link, email etc.
