  1. Squamish July 8 - 11

    All of my regular partners are busy this weekend. But I just got back from vacation and it's been raining so much. Looks like it's going to be dry but hot this weekend. I have Thursday and Friday off so I was hoping for 4 days in Squamish. I have a rack and a rope. I can lead 5.8/5.9 on multi-pitch and can follow 11a. I've led several single pitch 10a's a well. I'll be driving up from Seattle so if anyone wants to carpool, let me know!

  3. I teach at a community college and I've found myself with an odd schedule of all evening and on-line classes this quarter. So I'm hoping to find a regular partner to climb with at Seattle Vertical World at least once a week during the day as all of my regular partners climb in the evening. Anyone up for some uncrowded gym time? (I'm lead certified and have a lead rope we could use).
  4. I've been spending the summer climbing in Squamish, but it seems it's going to be wet and rainy there for the coming week so I'm looking to climb elsewhere. Anyone want to go to Smith or Trout creek for the week? I mostly interested in trad and the Lower Gorge at Smith is a good way to beat the heat, but I'm happy to clip bolts as well if that's what others want to do. I have a full rack and rope. I can consistently lead 5.8 (sport and trad) and have led a handful of 5.9s and 10a as well. I can follow 10c/d usually clean. *Julia Edited to add: I could also easily be talked into a climbing road trip to Idaho, Nevada, Utah (too bad Indian Creek is still too hot!), or California (Yosemite). I could be free for the next few weeks if anyone is interested.
  5. favorite climbing quotes

    "You have either have got the spirit or you don't. If you've got the spirit you fuckin rock; and if you don't ... you're a sport climber." -Leonard Coyne
  6. I'm a teacher with summers off, so I'm in Squamish climbing full time until September. If you want to venture north to Canada, I'm always looking for weekday partners up here.
  7. Hi Everyone, Some of you may remember me from last year. I'll be spending all of July and August in Squamish again this year and I'm looking for partners -- mostly for weekdays. I'm renting a room this time instead of staying in the campground so I'll have regular internet access so email may be the best way to reach me, but you can also call me at 206-661-6759. Details about me: I'm a 28 y.o. female. I have my own rack and rope and will have my truck up there as well. I am a solid 5.8 leader on cracks, and have led a handful of 5.10's in Squamish as well (The Zip, Nubile Woman, p1 of Exasperater). I broke my ankle badly last summer and it's not done healing yet, but it doesn't seem to be holding me back too much. I'll be heading up after 4th of July weekend and be there through early September.
  8. Yeah, I've been posting there as well. If I don't find a room, I'll be at the campground as well. And I'd be happy to rope up with you. I'm still recovering from a shattered ankle from a bad fall last August and me lead head took quite a beating from the fall as well. But I was in Squamish last weekend and led several climbs including an easy short 10a (Nubile Woman), so hopefully it won't take long to get back to where I was. If the room thing doesn't work out, maybe we can share a campsite as well!
  9. Yeah, I know $200 is low. I was hoping to find a place to share with several people. Like maybe a 1 bedroom place split between 4 people or so.
  10. Hey all, some of you may remember me from last year. I'm planning on spending July and August in Squamish again this year (I'm a teacher and have summers off). I loved living in the campground last year, but this year, I'm thinking it might be nice to rent a room. So if anyone has a room for rent (or share). I'm looking for something cheep (around $200/month). PM me if you have something you'd like to rent or any information you think would be helpful. And of course, I'll be looking for climbing partners as well. I'll probably post something to that effect in the partners section as the date gets closer.
  11. I took a risk and bought a harness online because it was a really good deal and a very similar style to the harness I'm currently using. But I"m not happy with the way it fits, so I'm planning on returning it, but I thought I might try to sell it here first to save me the cost of shipping to return it. I'll sell it for the same price I bought it for, $30. The harness is a size 8 Black Diamond women's primrose harness. According to their size chart, I shoudl be a size 4, but these harnesses have a reputation for running small. I think it's the right size for me, I just don't like the fit. Here's a link from the website I bought it at. PM me if you'd like to take a look at it and feel free to pass the info on to anyone you think might be interested. I live in the Seattle area, so you'd have to be nearby -- if I have to drive far or ship it to you, it would be easier for me to just ship it back to backcountry.com http://www.backcountryoutlet.com/outlet/BLD0735/Black-Diamond-Primrose-AL-Harness-Womens.html
  12. Summer in Colorado

    Hey, I'm planning on taking a climbing road trip this summer by myself and will be looking for partners. I would like to spend a lot of time climbing in Colorado. When it gets closer to the date you'll be leaving, send me a pm and maybe we can connect out there and rope up together!
  13. Tieton Sat-Sun

    How was the weather when you were there last weekend. I was planning on going to Vantage again this weekend (was there last Sunday and the weather was *beautiful*!), but the quality of climbs is definitely better at Tieton, I'm just worried it'd be too cold!
  14. I'm planning on attending Red Rocks Rendezvaus March 28 - 30 (http://www.mountaingear.com/RedRock/index.aspx). I'm not going to take any of the clinics, so I'm looking for partners to climb with during the day. I also have the whole week before off, so I can potentially be out there for a week (March 23 - 30) to climb. I am an experienced female climber and have all my own gear (full rack, rope, etc.), though I am recovering from a broken ankle, so I may want to stick to easier stuff -- (depends on how the healing goes between now and then. I'm also looking for a ride from the airport in Vegas to the Spring Mountain Ranch campground at Red Rocks and back. I'm not sure what the dates are yet as I still haven't booked my flight, so I could still work around someone else's schedule. I'd be happy to pitch in for gas. Let me know if you want to carpool or climb together!
