It is my solemn duty to report that I will be leaving the North-East for good around the end of May. However, during my travels this summer, I am going to be working in Albuquerque, NM and living at the base of the Sandia Mountains. I recently picked up a guide book for the area and am astounded at the possibilities. I will be new to the area so I figure a climbing partner will be hard to come by. If anyone is headed that way this summer and would be interested in climbing throw me a PM.
I should be there for the entire month of August and part of September. I'm looking for someone with some long route experience (Grade IV at least), and can climb 5.10ish on trad. Maybe we can hit the gunks a time or two before I take off.
Also, if anyone has climbed there I'd love to hear any recommendations and other info like how grades compare, ascent trails and fun bars in the area. Thanks.
