I live in San Francisco and I'm looking to do just about anything, anytime and I have lots of time, but not any money. I have gear enough to get me out there.
I'm an intermediate skier, looking to get into telemark and AT––whatever it takes to get into the backcountry. I don't mind snow-shoeing. I'm up for snowy peaks. I've only been on a rope a few times and the rest has been––in retrospect––saying what the hell did I do that for?
Falling off 5.10's in the gym, not a lot of outdoor rock experience. I've done the JOHN MUIR TRAIL nine times since 1996 (need a guide?) shasta, lassen, Recess Peak, rock hopping along the JMT
just desperate to get out there.
