Description:

Mountain Tinder®

Mountain Tinder® is a fun way to discover new and interesting mountaineering partners nearby. 10 billion matches have been made on Mountain Tinder. Here is how it works: If you’re interested in connecting with someone on Mountain Tinder, then just anonymously take note of their names to Like them; or don't to Pass. If someone likes you back, then it’s a match! Chat with your matches and get to know them at the pre-trip.

Come to the pre-trip with trip plans for an objective you're comfortable going on already and find that special some one or two to take with you! Each party is to be considered self-suffcient. If you're a more experienced couple, consider joining some novices to swing some leads and pass on your skills. (This is in place of Mountaineering Camp.) Also remember, it's often best to start easy and with low committment with a new partner, do something like Coffee Mountain instead of jumping right into serious objective like Meet-the-Family Enchainment.


With Mountain Tinder’s ‘Smart Profiles’ we let you know when you share common interests and objectives with your potential matches. On the message board thread describe yourself;

  • Share a tantalizing picture of yourself climbing
  • What kind of climbing do you do mainly?
  • What kind of climbing do you want to do mainly?
  • What qualifications or courses do you have? (Rock 4, G1, AST1, WFA, WTF...)
  • What is a grade or objective that you could comfortably lead today?
  • What's your risk tolerance; PG, PG-13, R, X, XXX (!!!)
  • Car? 4wd? Rack? Rope ; )
  • Share a trip report you wrote for people to get to know you

Meet interesting partners nearby.

 

Edit: No this isn't a dating service, it's just for finding a mountaineering partner : P
