I'm just waiting for my ice tools and boots to arrive!! I've been itching to try Hood/Whitney/Shasta early this winter. Living in Phoenix makes it a bit hard to find climbing partners-my buds all think I'm crazy. I have climbed Rainier ( with three other guys from SummitPost), but Like you, most of my experience in Summer stuff. I've got most of the gear also and my schedules are fairly flexible. Let me know if your interested.

Right On!!!! At the moment I'm open to any route and I'm free virtually any time. Peter, if you've already been up a few times I'll def go with your recommendations. I'm Ok with camping for a couple of days if necessary.

I'm thinking about flying out from NY for a summit try. I can do Mountaineer's Route and have all the gears needed except a winter tent.

I have summitted via the MR and would like to do a snow climb. I also have not used harness or rope. Many years on snowshoes and have ice ax and crampons and other winter gear. Keep me in mind, and let me know when you plan on climbing.
