Hi!! I'm traveling to Bend tomorrow with a friend for some time (no idea how long we'll be staying) and am looking for climbing partner(s)! I've only been sport climbing for about 6 months so I'm still quite a beginner, but am definitely looking to get some climbs in while in the area. My friend isn't much of a climber so she may or may not come along. Let me know if you're willing to let a beginner gal tag along and rope up!

Hi @BaileyB - Thanks for reaching out! It's great to hear that you're planning to do some climbing around Bend.
Hopefully some other community members in the area will respond here, but I wanted to pass along another suggestion to check out as well. Redpoint Climbers Supply is a gear and coffee shop in Terrebonne that is a hub of sorts for Smith Rock climbers. You might be able to go there to find partners or ask others for suggestions on who to connect with.
Smith Rock is a stunning spot. We'd love to hear an update afterwards if you're willing to share!
