I tried the whole "crag hookup scene," but who has time for that. A friend suggested I try online. He says he's been happily climbing for 8 years with a solid partner he met online.

About me: I'm in the Auburn/Palenville area for summer/fall and have a list of routes I'd love to get on while I'm here. Top of the list are some mega starred 12/13-'s at Donner and Big Chief, etc, both sport and try-hard-trad. I also want to wrastle some of the beautiful boulders around here, but there are so many that I'd be psyched to follow around other people's psych on them for awhile. I'm free some evening and most weekends and can probably even take whole days during the week with some planning.

Likes: try hard crews sharing psych or supportive one on one partnerships, projecting the same route and sharing beta, projecting different routes, giving an attentive and supportive belay, 12's in a day, following others psych to a crag they love and finding wonderful things to climb there. Also, I really like rock climbing, and like to do it A LOT.

Looking for: climbers of any age or gender who like to try hard. Couples and groups welcome. Ideally we would climb within a few letter grades of each other, but if you're a good belay and we can find a crag that we're both excited about, then it doesn't matter.

I, for one, like strings attached. Especially in the 8.2 - 9.8mm range. Sent a PM anyway. If you don't have a problem climbing with other ladies, let's get after it. alpinista83

I'm not sure if it was a joke, but if it wasn't, it is a weird parameter. Is that a common problem?

I prefer to climb with other ladies!

I hope most people get the joke here, maybe I should put a disclaimer that I am NOT looking for dates. At all. Just climbing parters. :)

Game on, as long as we're not friends though because real dirtbags don't have friends, just climbing partners.

Not common. I was erring on the side of the partner call potentially mirroring in motivation to the other post advertising their search for a single lady climbing partner. If you're hunting for single dick that can climb, you're probably not that interested in roping up with women. So I asked. And she clarified to my excitement.

If the aforementioned is what you're looking for, I suggest you log off here, stand by the Camp 4 kiosk, whip out Tinder and start vigorously swiping right to every six pack hugging harness that pops up. Your success rate in matching will be incredibly high.

Hey you guys!
Overall my little experiment was a success. An over the top title got this post 1500 page views in four days, which is kinda a lot for a partner post. And I think I've found a few promising partners too, which was the goal. A toned down/pragmatic title probably would've had similar partner results, but would've been a bit less fun.
MP OTT Title Analysis: more fun, same results.

Still seeking climbing partners too but I'm set on dates. I'm gonna try the camp 4 tinder thing for that...

Ok, kids, I know most of you were only born in the 90s, but here's the origin of the term, or at least the irony of advertising yourself as a single white female
