I am new to the north west via Wyoming, Utah, and originally Northern Virginia. I'm looking for someone who needs an available partner, who has some experience, and who doesn't mind teaching a little bit. I have summited Gannett Peak in WY, have ridiculous amounts of backpacking experience, a good handful of trad climbing know how and I'm in great shape. I have my eye on the volcanoes but I'm also looking for people to backpack, climb, and talk with. I love a good adventure where things get a bit uncomfortable, when you really have to apply yourself to make it through. I also love a nice relaxing trip out into the woods. As far as mountaineering gear, I'm all set minus a pair of crampons and a helmet (maybe a four season tent too). If anyone has an old set I'd love to talk about a purchase.
Feel free to respond to whatever and however but again I'm mainly looking for a good Mountaineering buddy.
Happy Climbing Folks
