Looking for a rock / ice / mountaineering partner in the Western Mass area to second and learn from. I've been climbing for 4 years now and am ready to move up a level.
Rock: I've done 5.10+ in the gym, 5.9 on rock, and sport lead 5.8 on rock comfortably. I've gotten some trad gear and know the theory and have led a couple REALLY easy short climbs (5.3ish) but want to gain more experience
Ice: I've done some top-roping on short vertical climbs (20 feet or so)
Mountaineering: I've taken several courses through IMCS in North Conway, gone up Willey's Slide (very comfortably), and have done a lot of winter hiking in the Whites, including Washington several times via Lions Head.
I have all of the gear that I need, just need a mentor to second and pick things up form. I also have a car,am mobile, and very willing to drive north to climb.
