Climbing/training Partner [Nyon/Geneve]

Hey guys!

I have recently moved to Switzerland, Nyon specifically, to study for a year. To dive right into my purpose of this post. I would first like to give a brief summary of my background to give a general picture to anyone interested.

Im 22, almost 23. Have done extensive hiking, whether day or multiple day hikes. A one week course in the Alps (Saas-Fee area) covering technical skills, mixed climbing + summit of the Weissmies. And last year an 'educational' expeditionary trip to summit Aconcagua where expeditionary skills and other necessities were covered along with minor technical skills again. I am in the range of PD+ and AD-.

So, since I am here for a year (possibly more) I want to take advantage of my location and pursue one of my passions. I want to develop my technical skills much further in order to climb responsibly and hit those routes that are currently beyond my reach. However, I could use any help from anyone who's more experienced, or at the same level and has the same ambitions. I prefer to have a partner (or mentor) who can teach me these things and perhaps also train together as I like working together with someone else and it helps as a motivator.

If you have any questions, suggestions or think you would like to join me please let me know!

Thanks!

I don't live in the area, but for finding climbing partners I can recommend the website kletterportal.ch.
