indoor, outdoor or both: Outdoor! Indoor when I have to.

Trad: Not yet
Sport: Yes
Aid: Haven't had the opportunity

Lead - well, just starting. I'm going easy to get used to it and have red pointed everything I've tried so far (like, 5.8s....)
gear: Just the basics; shoes, harness, locking biner, ATC. I need to stop mooching off of everyone else and just get my own rope.
fav. website: I spend way too much time here
weird fact about yourself: I play traditional Irish music (penny whistle)
random comment: I've got a bad feeling about this.

Name: Jason

Age: 31

Location: Batavia, NY (about halfway betweein Buffalo and Rochester)

indoor, outdoor or both: indoor until I can find a partner. I'm sort of new to the area and I don't really what's around. I'm hoping to find a partner or two (or twelve) on here...

do_______ (yes/no): you mean, like, with mousse and stuff? :)

Trad: In the past when I lived in MN. Not for quite a while now though...
Sport: Yup, but again it's been a while...
Aid: Seems a little tricky; maybe some day :)


fav. food: I'll forgo the "ham sammiches" for now and go with really good sushi

level (lead climbed): At my best several years ago, most 5.9's I attempted and one or two 5.10's. Now I've been indoors until I can find a partner so I won't even bother with how I totally sent that sick red route.

gear (basic, some, full rack and rope): Pretty remedial at the moment. Sold the rack years ago, kept the harness and the ATC. I have two pairs of shoes though so I must be just about ready to send that sick 5.13d finger crack I saw...

fav. website: www.junctionfive.net or custompendesigns.com

weird fact about yourself: I'm a drummer, a respiratory therapist, and I make wood pens

random comment: WTF?!?!?
