Will belay for trad experience!

i'm really trying to get into trad and hoping to find someone who is knowledgeable and patient (most of all SAFE) that is willing to pass on information/tips/tricks/and offer some chance of experience in return for belays. i have basic knowledge of placements, but so far zero experience on lead apart from a mixed multipitch with huge runouts and a few random placements.

i have a decent amount of experience seconding trad routes including single and double pitch crack routes up to 10b but mostly .8-10a as well as belaying/seconding 21 pitches of the chief last fall in squamish.

i am totally fine belaying all day in return for a chance to build up technique and skill.

i have a 60m rope, 12 draws, full set of new bd stoppers and a new full set of bd cams from .3 through 3 with doubles of .5, .75, 1 and 2.

again, i just want to learn whether it's seconding up a multipitch or belaying at a small crag.

i live in seoul. im available on weekends (but need to plan a little in advance) hope to hear from anyone that needs a partner or just feels like helping out a fellow climber.

hey ty!
when did you get back? welcome! there's some great trad/crack climbing in mureung valley. we'll likely be heading there in a couple weekends. it's a great place to learn placements because many of the cracks have spaced out bolts. so you can either run it out, or place a piece between bolts. if i remember right, we worked on that 10a together a couple years back.

Hi Ty!

I'm Luka. I'm an alpine climber from EU, Slovenia. I'm staying here in Korea for three weeks. Do you want to go climbing on 25th of July? I have a free day. Please let me know.

It's my first time in Korea and is difficult to get a climbing partner.

Today I was running from Gwanaksan mountain and I saw one nice climbing spot.

To climb is not to summit but to reach a destination in life.
