I've been saving this for the next one seeking a partner on ST.

Good luck, Mike.

*sigh* I must say the post above [deleted] is really annoying. I clicked in to read content and had to, yet again, endure the senseless scroll to skip over yet another senseless blank and meme, or whatever that kind of thing is called.

Back on topic... The link posted by Mouse (an ST search on word "partner") is pretty depressing. As far as I can tell, most of the partner searches here did not appear to yield any meaningful result other than detractions and sometimes even insults. Maybe the only exception is Vica from Hungary, who apparently had a huge success. She did sound very charming.

I just arranged a impromptu vacation at the last minute and am scrambling to find partners, but I couldn't bring myself to post my Partner Find here because of the above observation.

Well, I wish you good luck, mike m! You might want to try Mountain Project if you haven't.

There have been plenty of exceptions over the years Mei. Sometimes people find a partner here but don't say anything on their "find a partner" thread, but do post a trip report. Or they say something later on a different thread. So the partner finding threads aren't a true reflection of partners found.

I believe that there has even been two people who met on the taco and ended up getting married. Buyer beware. heh heh. It is the taco after all. ;-)

Given the comments I read about climbs on Mountain Project, I would hesitate to use it as a venue for finding partners.

Since 2005, all of my outside climbing partners have come directly from Supertopo or a friend of someone I met on Supertopo. Granted I don't climb that often or in very many places now, and I tend to be semi-monogamous in my climbing relationships. That said, this has been the best place for me to screen for people with a compatible background. You can read trip reports to get an idea of personality, how they handle stress or their appetite for sketchy situations, commitment to persevere in adverse conditions, etc.

I've found it's easier to recruit people when you share more trip reports and put yourself out there more. And, the more you are able and willing to be consistent in committing to climbing adventures, the easier it becomes to find and keep a partner.

And don't get discouraged by the number of requested posts with no public responses... sometimes it takes a while, and sometimes the responses are private messages.

Sounds good Jim. I think some people still climb on here. Just as long as they are old and crusty and don't like people a whole lot it should work pretty good.

Regardless of Jimbo's comment above...

Mt Project is "Hands down" the number one best site for finding partners...

Particularly since they actually have a "Partner finder" section and such...

They also have a HUGE membership...

But, isn't this the Taco way! I daresay this could apply to almost any post on the forum. Consistency is everything, reassuring in a way, that everyone is well. ;)

I have been around the block a few times and know all about my proj. Just not my style Worked pretty good so far I will let you know how it turns out. I donít worry about using up a little bandwidth to do something climbing related.

Wow I canít believe how good this partner finder works. Got out for many hundreds of feet of ice yesterday. All of you that are scared to ask for someone to climb with should try it. You can post on ST and it leads to climbing. Best of both worlds. If you do get a partner it does cut down on your posting somewhat, but you can catch up later.

Anyone want to do N Ridge of Lone Pine Peak from Meysan Lakes? I'm looking for something technically easy, to get a bit of Alpinish feel, and cover a decent amount of ground, preferably with < 48 hours away from Los Angeles. Mid-week can be ok with proper planning, or Nov 11-12 if the weather holds.

I could easily be convinced to do something else, but Russell might be pushing it with my time constraints and aerobic and climbing condition. For Russel I might be willing to make it a 3-day trip from LA, tack on a Monday or Friday of that Nov 11-2 weekend.
