Climbing is a pursuit that requires little in the way of sophistication. You want to rock climb? Get a pair of climbing shoes, and start bouldering. You'll meet folks at the rocks to do more with. You want to climb mountains? Go climb the easy walk-ups and scrambles, and you'll meet folks to do more with. Eager and pleasant partners are surprisingling rare. Be those things. Ask people to take your climbing. Spend your money on gas and the minimum equipment. Buy a one-way ticket to J-Tree. Go for it.

Freeclimb9 has a useful approach if you have at least SOME background. If not, do you really want to trust your life to someone you just met along the trail who APPEARS to know what they are doing and MIGHT have good judgement? Do you know enough to make that determination? Heck, I wouldn't trust me if I just met myself.

Looks like you're pretty green at the whole posting thing too. [big Grin]

Finding climbing partners at climbing areas can be hit or miss. The problem is the consequences can be disastrous. That said, I've met a lot of cool people at crags.

 

Dude, I'm not so sure this is a great place for an 6 year old...most of the guys on here act like they're only 5. [laf]
