I am a professional tree climber that has been climbing for 7 years. I am experienced with rope work, and rigging, but have only limited experience regarding rock climbing.
I started rock climbing about 3-4 years ago, but every time I got going, something pulled me away from developing my skills.
I am into sport and trad, with the aim to do more trad. I have led sport pitches only up to 16/17 and no trad yet. Although I have done a lot of seconding on trad on Table Mountain on some of the easy classic routes.
I have to go to Kalymnos in May/June 2014, and want to be up to standard to do some nice/good climbs there, and therefore, would like to get fit/better at climbing sport, with some trad exposure in between.
I am looking for:
Someone that is relatively on the same level as I am, as I don’t like the pressure of holding guys back on long routes.
Unfortunately, my wife does not like the idea of me going off for extended periods of time with another woman, and therefore, although it is a bit sexist, I am looking for a male partner.
I prefer to climb on real rock where possible, and thus avoid the climbing gym, as the whole point of climbing for me is to get outside.
Since I own my own business, my time is relatively flexible, and thus, I can climb at weird times, so ideally, I would be looking for someone that has free time on their hands at short notice.
Sport rack with 60m rope.
Trad rack, but no double ropes. I mostly use the 60m single, unless I climb with someone that has double ropes.
All other relevant equipment and gear.

I know this is a tall order, but you would never know if you don’t ask. Drop me a line if there is a possibility of a partnership.
Thanks in advance.
