Seeking partners for some mountaineering/ski mountaineering trips in the PNW July-September; have climbed and/or skid Adams, Stuart, Glacier Peak, and Rainier (although close on Rainier however, not quite the summit), as well as many smaller peaks throughout the Chugach range and the Alaska Range, skid the Wollowa range in Oregon (guided trip), and one of the 14,000 footers in the Sierra Nevada's just out of Bishop. Comfortable laying gear on mixed alpine routes in the lower 5.0's.
Solid and sensible climber with wife and 2 kids, and hold a job as a scientist.
All my pals in their 40's say their going to go, but usually bail on short notice, and as a result I have soloed quite a bit.
