I'm planning on being in the upper left part of the lower section of the country soon (currently in Bend), & I'd love to sample some of Washington's gourmet alpine granite while in the area. All of my regular climbing partners seem to be busy, so thought I'd throw this out there. Slesse's NE butt, Stuart's N ridge, & some of the fun .9s in the Pickets all tickle my fancy. I've been hiking around, camping, & climbing things for the better part of my life, so I guess I'm "experienced." So that you think I'm not a complete gumby as a partner, some of the routes I've done are the Prow on Kit Carson, the Nose, Temple Crag's Sun Ribbon Arete, various glacier, ice, & snow routes, ... A lot of the things I've done I've put up on SP, so you can look on my profile, or just ask me. I'm not confined to a weekday schedule. I'm pretty easy-going, & say that I'm compatible with about 99% of people as climbing partners out there. I've got a ride & the requisite gear. I realize that now is prime-time to get on some of these things, & that the season is starting to wane , so if you're interested, hit me up!
