Looking for partners / Joining a Mt. Rainier expedition

by jzheng18 » Sun Jan 27, 2019 10:01 pm

Hi,

I'm relatively new to alpine/winter climbing but am hoping to do a Mt. Rainier winter expedition as practice for Denali and other Himalayan treks. I recently finished an Aconcagua attempt (made it to 6,400m via the 360 route) and have summited Kilimanjaro and Elbrus. I'm comfortable with crampons and ice axe use and exposure at high altitude. I also have experience rock climbing (leading 5.10 - 5.11 sport climbs) outdoors. I go to school in the Northeast (am currently a graduate student) and am hoping to join a group with more experienced climbers vs. doing a guided climb with one of the operators for cost reasons. Essentially, I've realized how much I love this sport, and want to get as much practice as possible. I'm open to learning anything and would love to find mentors to help me do so.

If anyone is looking for a partner(s), please let me know - thanks!

jzheng18, I am looking for a partner for Rainier. I will be out there May 11-17, I am also hoping to climb Hood and whatever else I have time for. Not a winter accent but thought I would throw it out there anyway. I have some experience on glaciated peaks, Gannett and Orizaba as well as training in crevasse rescue, avalanche safety/rescue, team rope skills etc. Do you have experience with any of these skills, or could you aquire them by May? Let me know if you are interested, thanks!
