Looking for a few partner’s for some SoCal excursions. I am 27 years old, in OK shape (not fat, just could use a little more getting out), married, and get a 3 day weekend every other week. Right now all I have really done is some light backpacking, some hiking, light rock climbing, and I am pretty proficient on a mnt bike(just need to get back into ridding shape). I have a full set of backpacking gear, and a small amount of rock climbing gear (although I don’t climb much anymore due to an injury, which put me outta shape to begin with), decent mnt bike (stumpjumper elite) and an OK amount of outdoors clothing. Looking to get into a bit more of the mountaineering/summiting aspect of the outdoors. All I have really done thus far is baldy here in socal, which I know is easy, especially with no snow.
I am looking for a few folks who would be willing to head out with me to the local mountains and show me the ropes. Would be awesome if there is another young couple out there who is into the outdoors so I could get my wife involved as she grew up with the idea that camping was staying in a cabin, so it has been a challenge.
Let me know!
