Climb more ice
Lead a multipitch trad route
Finish rehab on my foot (and sell the motorcycle that caused the injury in the first place - anything that takes away climbing time is out the door, girlfriends included! :twisted: )

More specifically:

Mt. Ritter
Lone Pine Peak
Mt. Russell repeat - my fave climb of 2009
Find a route through the Santa Ana mountains - walk from my place in SD to my parents place in the OC and mountain bike back :)
Denali's WB (un-guided, need partners!)

...and...stop confining myself to lists!

Get out more (local rock climbing). Improve fitness. Climb a few cool alpine routes.

A 2 week honeymoon is going to cut into my climbing trips this year. No expeditions for me in 2010. Just a few more state highpoints as I inch closer to that goal... I'll be back in 2011 though for some more serious trips, including possibly Mt. Elbrus.

Road kill

* Run my first full Marathon in March.
* MT St. Helens and Mt Hood the last two weeks of May.
* Try to avoid looking like road kill while descending Hood! :?

Stay away from self-centered obnoxious flatlander weekend jacked up truck driving wanna-be city folk that will do anything to get to the summit....
