Looking for a mentor/climbing partner

2:36:06 PM
Hey all...I've come to the conclusion that I haven't been climbing anywhere near enough for my likings and need another partner thats a bit more gung ho about rock then my girlfriend.

So I'm after a climbing partner.

LIving in Sydney at the moment\ and should be here till mid july.

I do sport and trad and have the gear needed to do both. I lead at about 5.10a on both (on translations to the ozzy system thats anywhere from 16-18 depending on who does the translation)

I seriously want to improve my climbing in a drastic way and lately I havent been able to hit rock at all.

My days off will be mostly during the week (tuesdays and wednesdays at the moment)

So if anyone is willing just pm me email me.

Good on you for calling it Pierre, everybody should have a mentor or two. I was lucky enough to have a couple of mentors when starting out, one enforced a "double screwgate belay off the anchors" mentality, and the other having done some mountaineering was a tad more flexible and used clove hitches and accompanying body cushioning accoutrements.. With exposure to a couple of different mentor styles a young padawan will find their his place in the spectrum.

10a is 18 for sure, hit up the gyms midweek and you'll rocket through the grades, and likely make contacts too.
