My name is TJ Seren. Im a 27 y/o male looking for a partner for some climbing in Nepal. I will be there from March 7- may 6. I do not have a partner as of now and therefore have not decided which 'trekking' peak i want to get a permit for. i would like to climb somewhere in or near the everest region, since i didnt make it out that way last time i was in nepal, but i am open to most anything. If I am going alone, i will only be able to afford a group B trekking peak, and will be climbing something very straightforward and non-technical. if i can find a partner or two or three to split the permit costs with, then i am open to a group B or A trekking peak and something a bit more challenging/technical. Another idea i had was to try to bring my split snowboard and do some ski mountaineering on mera peak. I have been snowboarding for the past 15 years, with 12 of those being primarily in the backcountry. I have been riding my splitboard for the past 6 winters. If these plans sound good to you and you need a partner, let me know!! hope to hear from my new climbing partner soon!!! WAHOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!
