Penelope May-Smrz and I on top of the magnificent Sron na Lairig ridge (Scottish Winter Grade II), Stob Coire Sgreamhach, Glencoe area of Scottish Highlands, January 30, 2010. The photo was taken by a very young and friendly soloist Phil (Scottish MC member) who summited the route just a few minutes after us.


Male, 66 years old

Idyllwild, San Jacinto Mountains, California, United States

Power = 147 (Vote Weight = 89.87%)

Occupation: All kinds of climbing, anytime I can. Work? You must be kidding!

Website: None

A Few Words: I have been climbing, skiing and hiking mostly in the California High Sierra ever since I came to the US in 1970 from Prague in the Czech Republic. I love the Mountains of the Western US and I hope that I can hike and climb in them for many more years. If you read my messages, please forgive my occasional total destruction of your language, I'm doing my best. I have been American Alpine Club (AAC) member since 1983. Cheers and good climbing, Alois Smrz.
This page only lists a few climbs I have done in the 50 years I have been climbing. If I ever get the free time, I will post all of it, but don't hold your breath, I'm as busy as ever...
