Pretty much Ive got a lot of hiking experience including several big peaks and multiday trips, but only basic mountaneering skills when it comes to snow and ice and ropework.
I'm training to climb Longs Peak next June for a charity climb with Summit for Someone, and'm eager to get some more big peaks under my belt in general. If yre (or anyone you know is) doing anything big involving ice and snow and real mountaineering count me in, I can drive, I have the stamina and strength I just need to up my technical abilities.
