I just moved into Salt Lake City, and I'm stoked about the climbing in this area. The problem is... I don't know anyone. At all. I'm a freshman up at the university, and I'd love to get better at climbing and explore the canyons up here. I have some experience, like I can lead/lead belay, but I want to work on actual climbing ability. If anyone's interested, respond or PM? Thanks y'all :D Christopher DuHadway

You are in luck as the Salt Lake Climber's Alliance Climbing Festival is this weekend.

saltlakeclimbers.org/events/

They also sponsor a lot of crag improvement and cleanup events. Attending these is a great way to find other climbing partners.

You might also check to see if the U has a climbing club. These are always a great way to meet other climbers and find someone with a similar skill level, or join climbing trips to learn new skills.

I go to the U as well

Some trad experience, sport, mountaineering.

Up for whatever including a gym partner as my partners don't get out as much as I'd like too.

One caveat my leg is broken in a boot right now. Should be climbing in 3 weeks.

I'm always down to cruise moderates in the Wasatch or get on some harder stuff. Get at me if you wanna climb sometime. DustinM

If you're not busy this weekend, you're welcome to join me and my partner Saturday morning. Probably be hitting up something in bcc around 8:30 or 9 am.

If you see this soon enough, I'm gonna hit BCC at 5 tonight (23rd) with my brother in law, also going to American Fork Friday at 5pm.

Pm me and I'll shoot you my number.

Good luck with the partner search! Everyone I've met climbing in this area has been friendly so I don't think you're gonna have any trouble finding a grip of people to climb with.
