I'm looking to finish 14'ers so like to do Polemonium, Tbolt & Starlight; and Shasta. I'd also be up for other adventures - classic alpine routes or off the beaten track. Mainly I want to meet a few new friends / partners, see some new places, and have fun. I can possibly drive from LA ( Burbank ). Please excuse my silly photo - its not really me.
