I'm thinking of 2-4+ trips of 3-6+ days hiking and peak bagging during the summer of 2012.
1-2 trips to the Silverton area (depending on weather and distances accomplished):
*Grenadier Range and Needles (Ex. Vestal Peak - Wham Ridge solo, Arrow, Trinities Traverse, etc)
Chicago Basin 14ers (from Purgatory Pass)
*Telluride - general hiking and 14ers (Wilson/El Diente traverse, etc)
*Crestone Traverse (done 7/12)
*Little Bear/Blanca Traverse and Penitente Canyon mtn biking and climbing
*Snowmass, Pyramid (done 7/12), Capitol (done 6/12)
Colorado - solo of the Maroon Traverse, Capitol knife edge, and Longs,
also Crestone Traverse, Pyramid, Sneffels, Uncompahgre, Challenger/Kit Carson, US Grant, Pilot
Knob, V4, and V2 solo (Ice Lake Basin)
Out of state - Grand Teton, Rainier, Hood, Baker, Shasta, Whitney, Ritter/Banner, Conness/North Peak, Cathedral Traverse, and more
I'm not really planning on much true technical climbing, but I can lead climb at 5.9-10.
I'm fully confident of doing any and all of this on my own, but if someone that can keep up is interested I'd consider company.
