I live in EC and will be in and out of here until about April. Always looking for partners. Up to 6b+ or so (grades are soft here!)
I have ropes and all sport gear. No good trad here yet (but I am trying to get government permission to but up a bunch of trad routes)
I always have a rental car.
Happy to help with travel info and local beta
For groups, I rent out one of my houses (sleeps 6-10, luxurious, I give lower rates to climbers if you contact me directly)

Following! I’ll be in the area with full sport and trad rack!

Since you’re familiar with the climbing, what kind of rope is most useful? Single or half? 60, 70 or 80m? 

Thanks for any help!

Hans-yes
David-70 is needed for lots of routes, 80 for some. You can stick with climbs under 30 m but you will miss a lot of great routes. So, if you have an 80, bring it but if you only have a 70, you can get by with it. ropes are really cheap here-100-120 euros for a good 70m rope
  Single is good, not much traversing so doubles are not needed.
Forget the trad rack-there is very little trad and I've been told it is nothing special. EC is for sport climbing!
