As opposed to the past 3(!) winters where I've been busy studying, I'm FREE this winter!! I'd like to take full advantage of this & hit the slopes, the ice walls, & some snowy Sierra peaks as much as possible.
Looking for Bay Area (primarily for car-pooling purposes) climbers who would like to get together for skiing/snowboarding, X-country skiing, ice climbing, or winter mountaineering. Lake Tahoe seems like the easiest place to get to the slopes for some lift-access downhill fun, other places in the Sierra (& Shasta) for the rest. Oh yeah- have yet to successfully summit Shasta in the winter, so if you're up for that, let me know! Casaval Ridge is a favorite of mine there.
Don't need to necessarily have a vehicle, as I've a truck. Having your own equipment (don't need rope-I have that) would be beneficial, as would a good understanding of ropework, anchors, & belay systems.
If you're still with me & interested, give me a shout- it's time to get out there!
