Rock Climbing Photo: Old Lady H
My best up old self is in dire need of climbing, hiking, mountain biking (maybe, need to learn off road and don't have quite the right bike, yet), and coffee swilling partners. Also open to gym climbing, and have an unused membership at Planet Fitness.

Honestly, right now, I'm feeling a little intimidated about climbing. I never was any great shakes at it, and now arthritis is suddenly making life harder. Turns out, best "cure" for my knee(s) is exercise, so I really need to ramp up my activity, change my habits, and make taking care of my self a priority.

I have everything for climbing but a rope. I don't have a car, though, so I would be relying on your kindness for rides.

If you already know me, or think you do, yes, I mean you! I need you guys to help me!

If you don't know me, I'm an outside climber, also go to the BSU climbing gym now and then. I'm solid belaying up to around 160# lead climbers outside, and have top rope belayed about 230# inside.

My main climbing partner has been my 22 year old son, who is super solid, but, getting his own life, and our schedules don't mesh very well.

Totally open to young, old, couples, parents and kids, dogs, smokers, whatever, just so you don't expect me to be your rope gun, or get anywhere at any great speed when hiking/biking.

Thanks! Helen
