  1. Hi Adrian,

    any news on the partner list?

    Ciao – Werner

  2. Yup – I’ll put up a note about it in the next couple of days. Been a busy holiday season.


    • Hi Adrian
      when you do put up a note about the partner list – where will it be posted, on this site?

  3. Merry Chrismas one and all.
    I’m looking for a potential partner – for grade 3’s and 4’s –
    looking for short trip to Rockies where ice is guaranteed.
    Two close in potential periods;
    week of January 2 through 6th or,
    week of January 14 thru 20th – just looking for 4 or 5 days.
    if we hit it off, could lead to more.
    Have gear, ropes, etc.
    p.s. – not looking to die in avi conditions or set fire to grade 6 test pieces so you must be content with just getting out – and getting warmed up – finding the rythmn again. I’m safe as proved out by my age 🙂


    • Hi Matt, Im from slovakia and Im looking for climbing partner for any winter activity included ice climbing, ski touring, winter mountainering…Im living in Whistler, and I came here improve my climbing ability, if you are interested please let me know. I have got all gear only rope I dont have

      thanks for you reply

    • Hi Matt, I’m Dave from the UK – I also share your love of getting out and having a laugh (without dying 🙂

      I’ve got all the gear (inc rope) and am keen for a road trip east. I live in Whistler, drop me an email and we could go for a beer to chat about routes.


    • Hi Matt
      I might have you on the ‘age’ corelation to safety 🙂 .
      would love to get out to the rockies for a short forray but also, looking to get out more than once if it all works out.
      Have climbed for years but always a few days each year – hence, 3’s and 4’s sound great.
      Lots of flexibility for me – i.e. can shoot out for a day or 2, or with notice, a longer trip. (have all gear like many)

  4. Hi Adrian,
