Interested in technical winter Sierra routes. Examples: NERLPP, Winter Route LPP, Temple Crag ridges, small Palisades Traverse, couloir between Whitney and Day Needle. Until the snow comes, anything to 10a in the Sierra is cool--particularly the Langley N face ridges, South Corner LPP, South Face Direct LPP, Split Mnt ridges, long simul-solo ridge romps (e.g., NERLPP, though I did that recently).
Have done stuff like: Winter Route (in summer), Fishhook on Russell, Whitney EB in almost-winter, N and NE ridges of LPP solo, V Notch --> Underhill Couloirs in ice conditions, as well as some moderate routes in the Mont Blanc massif. I tend to hike quickly, especially since my camera was stolen in Oakland :-(. Lead 10a, WI3, have rock/ice racks, double skinny ropes, a totaled car (soon to be replaced...), yadda yadda.
Contact me via email (see profile page).
