    Hey all! I went out for the first time this past weekend, and love it! Looking for more folks to climb with! I've got a few friends, but our schedules are typically different, so I am looking for folks who can head out at similar times. I work M-F, pretty standard, but have the weekends! I have got some of the personal gear (boots, crampons), but don't have the rest of the gear, nor the experience to lead/set a top rope. I have gym climbing experience, so I know how to belay. Please reach out if you'd be willing to take a new ice climber along! I spend the majority of my time in the dacks, and have the most familiarity there, and the catskills second after that, but would be keen to go most anywhere.

    Hi Kimber,
    If your looking for a partner I would be happy to have you along. I am currently in the process of getting a few of my friends up on the basics of anchor building and ice. It makes for a few slow days when there are a few of us but I'm always happy to share my favorite sport with people.

    Sweet! Thanks! Yes, please let me know when you're going, and we can also coordinate some mutually beneficial times. I'd be keen to learn setting anchors, and just get more experience in general. My number is 763-242-1867. Please reach out and we can set up some times!
