Hello everyone,

I will be moving to San Antonio this fall. I will most likely be looking for some partners to go climbing with, both sport and trad. I take it there's no mixed climbing in the area? :-) Anyways, if you are interested…let me know. I am more in to easier alpine trad, but enjoy everything (lead up to 5.8ish trad, 5.10 sport).

I look forward to meeting you all.

Matt

Hey Matt!

Well, it's been a week and no one has replied to your post so I'll try to fill in some.

Welcome ( early) to San Antonio. You will be about 90 minutes from Enchanted Rock. There is something mixed climbing. A copy of Sean O'Grady's Enchanted Rock will be helpful, but hooking up with a local will save you days of wandering.....

While I'm the admin of this site, I suck at crack, find slab boring and only visit ERock once maybe twice a year.
I like overhanging limestone...full of bolts, with stick clips, heel hooks and dynos. Ask Dima.
I climb primarily at Reimers Ranch and in the Barton Creek Greenbelt... All sport climbing on limestone.

I can tell you the names of and general locations of the popular lines at Enchanted Rock, but I'm not the right guy to show you around.

Do you have any questions?

I have couple of questions.

1. Do you have a guide book for ERock?
2. Where are you from, like, where are you climbing? What are you used to?
3. Are you familiar with Texas summers?
4. What brings you to Texas/ San Antonio?

I look forward to meeting you and introducing you to more knowledgable ERock folks.

Late to answering this, but I climb with a few guys who are in a similar skill range. I'm recovering from shoulder surgery, but will probably be a .8-.9 climber when I get back (sport). I'm also assembling a single rack to learn trad once I'm able to climb again. You should join the San Antonio Climbing group if you have FB as well, sometimes there will be people looking for partners there.

Been busy moving...sorry for late reply.


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,
Matt

Matt,

I realize this thread is a little dated, but I'm new to San Antonio as well. Moved here from the NE this past summer and am always looking for climbing partners. Don't make it outside as much as I would like these days as I've got 2 little ones at home, but enjoy both trad and sport when I can. I've got some experience at both Reimers and Erock (lead and have an excess of gear). Also, let me know if you're ever interested in a home wall climbing session if you can't make the drive for a full day of climbing outside.
