partner for Aug 1 - Aug 7

Looking for a Sport Climbing partner for this week. I'm looking to lead 10s through 11s, with maybe a few easy 12s (basically "The (old) Zoo" is my range. Don't mind some long 8s or 9s as well. You can pick the area. Also may split the trip up and put some time in at the New if anyone is interested....

Re: Getting my feet wet at the Zoo

Sport climb 7/20 - 7/25?

I'll be visiting RRG next week and looking for others to climb with. I plan on sport leading 5.9s - 5.11s, and maybe an occasional 5.12 thrown in. Anybody else available on the weekdays? I've got a guidebook, but I've only climbed at RRG twice before, so I'm open to climbing locations.
