Mountineering with one good arm?

Dear All,

I am hoping to get some feedback from those of you that have some proper mountaineering experience.

I've been hiking for quite some time, have done some rock climbing in the past and love being in the mountains. As natural progression would have it, I would like to get into some bigger mountains and some tougher climbing.

name of mountains.

Hey guys,
what is the name of the dry mountain which is across Mount Whitney, CA? it seems pretty high up while you climbed Whitney, is on the other side of Lone pine. I was just wondering if there are some good trails on it to summit it. Also, if you guys know some good high mountains to climb around Death Valley, CA.
thanks guys!!!!

I could not figure out the route rating system on this site. Such as:
F+? "possibility to climb the north and the east ridges,(3 hours F+),the lower part is common."
BSA? "Sky route,S flank: Long route,from Bagni del Masino ( 4/5h BSA)"

Thanks for your help in advance!
