James Miller (jamesmilleresquire@gmail.com)

Markus Stenberg (markus.stenberg@iki.fi) - Me and Arkko were talking on Sunday about going somewhere on Friday. I hurt my wrist last week though, so not sure if I want to belay someone with one well working hand (or if someone wants to be belayed *grin*), so mostly looking for bouldering opportunities. I'm fine with one-armed belayers.. :) – You guys wanna go Tuesday? I'm leaving Thursday..

Try for your first time we can show you your knots and climb with you interested First Timers!! :)
