I'm looking to team up with some other climbers and mountaineers in the area. I live near Rancho Cucamonga, so 2hrs from Joshua Tree, 1.5hrs from Tahquitz and 3hrs from Lone Pine. I can follow most 5.8-5.9 and lead sport or trad most 5.6-5.7
Doing a lot of summits these days so any CA 14ers would be great. I've climbed Whitney via Mountaineers Route, White Mountain and Mt. Langley via Army Pass. I'd say I'm intermediate with my experience. Day trips in the San Gabrieal mountains are a plus as well.
""... Then it seemed to me that the Sierra should be called, not the Nevada or Snowy Range, but the Range of Light. And after ten years of wandering and wondering in the heart of it, rejoicing in its glorious floods of light, the white beams of the morning streaming through the passes, the noonday radiance on the crystal rocks, the flush of the alpenglow, and the irised spray of countless waterfalls, it still seems above all others the Range of Light.""
