Hey all,

I am recovering from a pulley injury and finally getting back into climbing outside. That means that I can only climb pretty easy stuff, up to about 5.7 trad or 5.10 sport. So I'm looking for partners that are willing to go out and have some laid back climbing days and get on chill stuff. Also down to do some aid.

I have been climbing outside for 11 years and have done all the types of climbing, from sport, aid, to trad, to mountaineering, etc. This is also a great opportunity for me to teach/mentor newcomers on easy terrain. I've been teaching people casually for a long time too and fully believe in paying it forward (as I was mentored also). If you're interested in learning specific climbing skills, hit me up too.

Anyways, I have to keep off the hard stuff. Help me out by hanging out for some chill laidback climbing (or scrambling or mountaineering)

Hit me up

I'll be hanging out around the eastern Sierra this week. Down link up for some scrambles or laid back climbs!

Was hoping to find a partner for Venusian blind this Monday/Tuesday. Let me know if you're interested!
