Permanent climbing buddy in CT

Hey,

I'm looking for a climbing partner to climb with fairly regularly in the gym and outdoors. I have a group of friends that I climb with, but struggle a bit to find regular times/grades that line up with everyone else.

Bouldering: I'm probably climbing 6a/6a+ on a good day - I have given Girl on my Mind (6b+) a fair bash and haven't put all the moves together yet.
Sport: Leading 18, 19, 20 outdoors - flashed Quasimodo (20), but got thrown off Chocolate Speedway (18). So looking to project 21/22, but still climb plenty of 19s and 20s.
Trad: Seconded a couple routes, would love to do more and learn how to lead - I am in the process of putting a rack together.

Location: City center/Vredehoek; very open to climbing trips, have been at Montagu, Houdenbek, and Rocklands most recently
Gyms: I have a subscription at CityRock, and climb at Bloc11 a few times a month
Times: evenings and weekends at the moment, might have a lot more free time in a few months (to spend on climbing)

DM/reply here and we can switch to Whatsapp.

Mike

No, dear Forket is attempting to troll you :pirat:

It does raise a question of: Would you get better responses from climbers if you put in a link to your Facebook profile?
just a thought !?

I was purposefully trying to feed him :wink:

I'm not sure - for one, I don't have a Facebook profile, and two, I did think an honest summary of my climbing level and interests would be best (despite Forket).

I'm sorry to take away from your fun :oops: :lol:

Forket probably just wanted to know what you looked like before he replied :wink:
