More Info
While I like to push myself every once in a while on TR, I mainly like climbing longer routes, peaks, ridges, etc. I never climbed hard, but I've always had lots of fun. I am back after a longer break, and right now I am looking to lead easy sport / trad. I'd like to be back to alpine 5.8 by summer. Got rope & rack!

I've always had good luck finding partners in the past, I met some awesome people (for the most part :), and had crazy adventures. Unfortunately most have moved on, or are far away. Looking for a local partner to get back in shape. You can be a strong climber looking to take it easy for a day, or a beginner looking to learn.

Best places I climbed at: Red Rocks, Sierra peaks, Chamonix. On my todo list: Tetons, Wind River Range, Flatirons, Dolomites.

Extra info: I'm a UC Berkeley alumni working in SF: linkedin.com/in/danielpreda Also into other outdoor activities: (night) hiking, sledding, foraging, caving
