I recently returned to climbing after a long break. I'd like to get into trad, and I'd like to find some instruction. The few people I know are sport climbers without a ton of interest in trad climbing. I've come to the conclusion that once I get back to a respectable level, I'd rather seek out lower traffic, more adventurous climbing rather than push my limits on viciously steep sport climbs.

In my prior climbing life, I was leading 5.11 sport climbs. I'm not back at that level yet, but should be leading .10s this fall. I took some training "back in the day" and learned how to properly build anchors for top roping, how to rappel safely, and how to lead multi-pitch sport routes. I've followed on a few multi-pitch trad climbs as well. Those experiences have sat dormant for a decade, and I am probably much more risk adverse now, so training seems in order.

Any suggestions?

If you're looking for a paid guide:

kragky.com/?page_id=42

redriveroutdoors.com/guided-se...

torrentfalls.com/rockclimbing/...

Otherwise just try to hook up with some people. Post on here, and redriverclimbing.com and I'll bet you find someone willing to take you out. I'm still learning trad myself, and would offer, but I wont be out again for a few weeks.

Finding someone to go with would be preferable and cost less for sure. I guess either way it is climbing with strangers until you become friends.
