Where has George Perkins been climbing?












Personal: Lives in The Dungeon, NM, 36 years old, Male
Favorite Climbs: I've repeated Gangland more than any other route (~50 laps each season). But my most memorable NM climbs have mostly been adventures in the Sandias, Questa, & Capulin. Local climbs noteworthy (to me) are noted in ticklist below.
Other Interests: I used to ski, backpack & trail run quite a bit - I ought to do those non-climbing activities more often- but seems lately I'd usually rather climb.
Personal/Favorite web site: none specified
Likes to climb: Trad, Sport climbs
Trad:  Leads 5.12a 7a+ 25 VIII+ 25 E5 6a  Follows 5.12a 7a+ 25 VIII+ 25 E5 6a
Sport:  Leads 5.12b 7b 26 VIII+ 26 E5 6b  Follows 5.12b 7b 26 VIII+ 26 E5 6b

Thanks for checking out my page.
Seems I've started to acquire an undeserved local hardman reputation after posting beta to the NM portion of this site for years. I'm not especially strong, talented, or motivated to train consistently; I've just been climbing regularly for years as an avid recreational climber, seeking out rewarding experiences and trying to give my best effort, in my otherwise normal life.

Always interested in meeting more local climbing partners, so hit me up for:
-weekday evenings at the Dungeon or White Rock, spring to fall
-weekend days in the Jemez, Diablo, Sandias, Capulin, El Rito, Tres Piedras, Socorro Box etc.
-kid-inclusive adventures
-I can sometimes do farther climbing trips, but let's climb together locally first
