Hello. New to the Bay Area and am excited to get on some long, technical alpine routes in the Sierra. Looking for someone with maybe a little more experience who can help further my multi-pitch skills on some classics.
I have lead a smattering of short 5.5/5.6 rock routes, multi-pitch ice up to WI3, high-altitude climbs in the Andes and some good ski mountaineering routes. I am a registered EMT, Avy II, with good over-all fitness. I have a solid rack, tools and all necessary equipment.
Wanted, classics like:
Swiss Arete, Mt. Sill
U-notch on North Palisade
North Ridge on Conness
Bear Creek Spire
Please respond with your experience, routes wanted and lets talk!
