Hey all, just seeing if anyone would like a +1 for some TR or Sport climbing around Southern NH. I live right in between Manchester and Concord, and go to Evo 3-4 times a week. I've climbed several areas at Rumney and Pawtucks, almost every line at Rimmon (I know, but I have a soft spot for the place), two routes on the Cannon Cliff, Artist's Bluff, Stonehouse and Lake Massebeesic (sp?). I'd like to get in more outdoor climbs, but with my main climbing partner heading to college in NY (Rochester), I'm s.o.l for now. Also, I've been using outdoor gear his father got him (i.e quickdraws, rappelling device, sling), so I don't have any of that stuff just yet, though I plan on purchasing all of the above by the end of the summer at the latest.

I'm 21 years old, I've been climbing for about two years, and I would consider myself a 5.10+ climber, meaning that I can onsight virtually any lettered 10. I have onsighted up to 12.A, though I suspect that that one 12A I did was very very soft, I can usually work through 11C/D's.

I'd like to push myself on harder outdoor climbs, and am looking to tag along with someone! Who knows, maybe it could even be a regular thing. I'm very free during the summer, but I'm wrapping up my last year of college starting in the fall, so won't be as free then. But I'll still be able to climb! Let me know if you want to set up a climb or two or seven!

I saw that you had posted looking for partners. I'm from SC so obviously I can't be a recurring partner, but I am pretty sure I will be in NH from the 14-19 with my family, and I am trying to climb at Rumney and Cathedral Ledge during my trip. Would you want to try to get in a day at Rumney, and would you be able to on a weekday? It looks like we are probably close enough in ability to be fun, though you might want to be on a little bit harder stuff than me. I like to climb 10s and into the easy 11s, but can usually flail up harder stuff if I need to clean. Give me an email at if you think you might want to climb.
