Comments: Hello all. Im in Melbourne. :) I climb because I love feeling free. Its not about Ego for me. I very much dislike Ego-climbers, and those who seem to feel its about being superior to others. I might be better than someone on the wall, but everyone is on their own life path, and wherever they are at is beautiful.

To be "current", as at March 2013, Im focused on my running :) Training for the Melb marathon, so that is most important to me right now. I *adore* climbing - the way it feels.. that freedom... though right now its really my cross-training for upper body strength and stretching.... but because I love it, I want to climb as much as I can without causing injury.

Im doing indoor grades 19-21 and the occasional 23. I really hope to be able to comfortably climb 24-25s by June. Getting lead climb pass in June/ July 2013 too....

I want to head outdoors to climb, yet my fitness goals are focused on my running until Oct, so hence Oct is when Im willing to move outdoors. Admittedly, Ive not climbed outdoors for a LONG time, so I feel Im sneakily more inclined to stick to the gym until I am (at least my expectation of) "an awesome climber".

I am seeking a RELIABLE climbing partner. No Egos. I am looking for "climbing chemistry"- its not really about grades, but i do prefer to climb with people around my level. I want to climb 2-3 nights a week, but lets see how our schedules work. If you want to climb with me, please PM me.


Autumn :)
