Got the Erock guidebook but spent my first time there trying to find routes (alibi--had my 2 - yr old with me)

I am originally from Boulder,CO... just spent four years in the Alps climbing...Eiger, Matterhorn, MB we're my highlights.

I don't like heat...will be travelling to climb in summer.

Work brought me to SA.

My German climbing partner is looking to climb the Nose next Fall and I'm looking for a partner to practice trad/aid techs.

Holler if interested,

I'd be psyched but I don't live there any more. However, I can share a little bit of beta for practicing at Erock. I dont know how much aid experience you have but if just trying to get practice with the basics, Bush crack is a good one to practice on as it is a splitter that changes sizes and takes all types of gear. Also you can set a top rope on it.

Space Lichen (I think is the name) is a well bolted sport climb that is good for reachy bolt ladder practice. You really have to top step to get to the bolts (height dependent).

The seam just left of Top Choice (don't know the name) is good C2 practice as you will be placing tiny brassies, cam hooking, and there's a drilled hook hole just at the top. You can also set up a top rope easily.

As for jugging, you can get good mileage on the backside and it's really the only place to get any decent exposure at Erock. You can easily drop fixed lines back there and set it up to go between routes so you're practicing traverses, pendulums, and lower-outs.

Hope that helps. Good Luck!
