Depending on how much you can trust strangers meeting people out and about works well. I used to go to Frenchmans Coulee and walk around bummin' belays, but if you want to learn the fundamentals see if you can tag along on an easy trip somewhere. Maybe someones early season recon trip for later alpine routes?


Do you have any overnight backpacking experience? That might be a good place to start.

Sorry Russ. I am sort of a newbie. Only been climbing for about 15 yrs and still learning teaching with the Monties for about 8yr. Still, I stand by the idea that if you have NO experience, how do you know that person you find on the rock or along the trail is experienced and safe? I've had both wonderful and disasterous experiences along these lines.
