City or Place: where I live, but "home" is the Sierras
Skill Level: Intermediate
Categories: Ice Climbing, Mountaineering, Rock Climbing, Skiing, Other
Partner Status: Need Partners
Looking for high sierra, ice, rock and skiing partners, year round or when seasons permit
I would like to do:
Minarets in general
Mt. Conness, N. Ridge
Sawtooths in general
and various big walls
There's more but, you get the idea
In the bigger picture I would like to hone my skills enough for things like:
On rock I can follow up to about 10 a/b.
Ice, I have climbed up to WI3, I haven't tried anything harder yet, but didn't even come close to poping off WI3. Lead once on WI3 on the Bard/Harrington wall in Lee Vinning. I have practiced on some verglas and mixed climbing in the Truckee train tunnels.
Skiing, this is were I am least experienced, but love it just the same. On skis I am just intermidiate. I did do an awesome trip from Toga pass, through Lyle canyon, over Donahue pass, out to Mammoth mt. after being on skis maybe 5 or 6 times. That trip was one of the best events of my life. Well, besides ice and rock........I can never make up my mind as to which I like best???
Time, I have weekends off, and can occasionally take a fri or mon off.
I like boating too
paddle raft up to class 4 w/ good paddle captain, kayaking class 1-2, easy sea kayaking (Tomales Bay) would like to get good enough to do the inside passage someday.
