Where has George Perkins been climbing?

Personal: Lives in The Dungeon, NM, 37 years old, Male
Favorite Climbs: Gangland, which I've climbed hundreds of times. My most memorable NM climbs have been adventures in the Sandias, Questa, & Capulin.
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. Hope you find my comments & opinions useful, mostly just trying to help out other NM climbers.

Seems I've started to acquire an undeserved local hardman reputation after climbing many of the routes in NM and posting to this site for years. Look: I'm not especially strong, talented, or motivated to train- just climbing outside a few times every week. 1000s of pitches, spent seeking out rewarding experiences and pushing personal limits. Life is so simple and beautiful.

I've got a handful of wonderful regular climbing partners, but I'm always happy to meet and spend time with more, 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 trips (primarily keen on multi-pitch trad), but let's climb together locally first
