More information:
Looking for motivated partners!(as of April 2015) I'm working hard to progress and need partners who are serious about climbing. I'm all about early starts, quick breakfast, efficiency, mileage, toughing it out in less than ideal weather, and safety. I am working on leading .10+ trad this year, and 5.12 sport. (I thoroughly enjoy both). I would also love to climb in the park and The Black Canyon several times this year.

Some general background...I've been climbing for about 4 years (started in 2003 but didn't climb much for several years in b/w), mostly in California; Jtree, Taquitz. I moved to CO in late 2012 and got back into climbing full swing last year. I love climbing and haven't found rock in the front range, or anywhere else, that I don't like! Eldo, Lumpy, Clear Creek, Table mtn, Boulder Canyon, South Platte, Black Canyon...all awesome. Also, I am excited to check out Devil's Head and Thunder ridge this year.
I like trad, especially multi-pitch, and would like to get into alpine climbing. I don't have a lot of experience on snow/ice, but I learned the fundamentals on a 24 day instructional mountaineering course in 2012, with IWLS/AMG. My certification is expired, but I took a wilderness EMT course that year as well.
