More information:
I am new to climbing this year but have been leading trad since my first day out. last year we did a bunch of big scrambling routes and I caught the Alpine bug. I have gear and have no problem climbing with a complete novice or veteran alpinist. I am down for trad or sport, but for me that's really about learning (read 'fun!'). My heart lies far away from the crowds in the hard places of the mountains. Looking for fun people to climb with!
