I'd like to kick up my winter climbing itinerary a bit. Anyone interested in any of these mountains or places in the winter let me know.
Climb and Ski Descend:
-Shasta (completed 4/22/07)
-Hood (completed 1/14/07)
-Three Sisters Marathon (Skied N Sister 4/13)
Ice and Alpine:
-Eagle Cap Wilderness (aka, the Strawberries, aka the Wallowas)
Rock (as things get into spring more)
-Smith (10 minutes from home)
-Prusik or Dragontail
-City of Rocks (June 9 - 12th)
I have all my gear. I'd be willing to teach skills if necessary for the more benign routes. More difficult routes will require more competent partners.
