More information:
I've only been climbing for a short time (started in 2014), but I spend a lot of time practicing setups on the ground and reading all that I can. I'm primarily a hiker but love climbing and am seeking to combine the two into alpine adventures.

Currently a student from Montana and I have a basic rack and rope (cams, nuts, hexes, draws) and feel relatively comfortable with it given my experience level. I've done a few multipitch sport climbs and one multipitch trad, all leading at least one pitch. I would love to find some more experienced climbers so I can keep learning.

I'll be in Golden, CO this summer working at the National Renewable Energy Lab and will be looking for some folks to climb with May through August.
