I am interested in meeting like-minded (passionate about wilderness exploration) climbers who want to do some fun alpine routes/trips in the Washington Caccades. I have extensive scrambling experience, and moderate technical experience. I used to lead 5.8/5.9, but its been about 7 years since I've done significant rock climbing. I have climbed many scrambling peaks though - Dome, Sinister, Cathedral, Formidable, Black, Snowfield, Mesahchie, Katsuk, Rainier, Golden Horn, Tower, etc. I did the Ptarmigan Traverse last summer. I've also backpacked the PCT and CDT, and climbed 100 highest peaks in CO. I'd love to get back on rock this spring, and do some fun peaks this summer - forbidden, Bonanza, sherpa and stewart, shuksan, etc. A buddy of mine is coming out for week long Inspiration Glacier Traverse with climbs of El Dorado, Dorado Needle, Klawatti, Austera, Primus. If we vibe, you'd be invited.
