Anyone looking for an AID partner in the Asheville area?
Jul 5, 2014
I live in Asheville, NC. I have been away for about 6 months but will be moving back for good at the end of July. Before I left I had started working on getting some aid gear together and was able to get out on a few A0-A1 pitches at Rumbling Bald. I am looking to get more serious with aiding and looking for a partner to climb with. I have a lot of gear, aid ladders, daisies, fifi, ascenders, gear sling, microtrax, doubles from 00 TCU/MC to yellow BD C4 with a single #3 and a few offsets mixed in. Two full sets of nuts with a few micros. three ropes but no static (hopefully will have one soon), plenty of lockers, doubles in Talon, Cliffhanger and Grappling hooks, a few moses cam hooks and a few peckers. obviously personal equipment, harness, ATC, grigri etc. 12 trad draws with shoulder length slings, plenty of sport draws.
So I have most of the equipment I can think of needing for southeast aid and a basic knowledge of the process, I just need time on the rock and in the aiders. Hoping to find someone I can learn from and wants to get out but just cant find a reliable partner.
My wife and I climb the nose a lot so its pretty easy for me to get to that area. If anyone is interested let me know, would love to get out sometime.
