Do you have partners that are -
*climbing something alpine
*on the injured list
*on the unhealthy list
*just joined the "daddy club"
*needing new boots

I do!!!!

I don't mind soloing, its actually great to do occasionally. I'm more inclined to climb with a friend though. If you find you're in similar circumstances, give me a shout to see if I need a partner.

I've been ice climbing before (at least three times), I have the gear, a ghost mobile, and beer. I'm happy to climb W2 to W5. Happy to be lead bitch or be a belay bitch - even a photo bitch. I don't care if you're experienced or beginner, just don't lie about which.

And if I know you... wtf dude, call me. Its ice season.

Grant, Are you still in need of partners? I will be in the Rockies, 19th to 25th March and am looking for partners. I think we met last year at the Rockes Ski lodge, I was with Tom Yandon.

Yeah the Fang Gang never made it this year. I've fired you a text, hope your numbers the same. If it changed from 2604 then send me a PM to connect.
