More information:
Been climbing since I was 14. Took the last few years off due to work and a new baby. Now I'm ready to get back in the game but I'm finding that my know how and my strength don't match up very well at this point.

Time is still a premium and weekends are all that I have to offer but I'm eager to get back on the rock.

I'm loving trad climbing in the South Platte and I'm interested in hooking up with anyone familiar with the area, or is like me and is just drawn to the adventure that climbing in this area brings.
