This post is a shot in the dark but I am hoping to excahnge some rock climbing expirence for some mountaineering expirence.
I am going to have all of May open for climbing/mountaineering. I have been climbing for two and half years just about every weekend. I have lots of experence in easy to moderate multipitch trad climbs. I have climbed lots of the classics in Red Rocks, and the easier routes in the Sierras such as Venusion blind, Moon Goddess Arete, North Ridge of Conness, East Buttress of Whitney, Cathdral and a couple others. I have also taken courses in high-angle search and rescue. So rope and pulley systems wont be new to me. I am also a quick learner.
This year I would like to combine a little mountaineering into the climbing. I would like to learn snow travel, self-rescue, and maybe cravase rescue. Some of the routes I have an eye on are Exum Ridge in Wyoming, MOunt Shasta in California or something in the Sierras like Swiss Arete or in the Palisades. I am really open to anything in the mountains in may. Its just that you need to know what you are doing in regards to snow which I dont.
So if anyone has any routes they would like to tick off and need a rack for I am more than happy to help out and even drive there as long as it reasonalbe.
