Greetings, am looking for some adventurous hiking/climbing partner/s to climb Granite Peak by way of the SW Couloir route. I am definitely planning on August of 2016, but the days are flexible. I have climbed Granite Peak twice by the normal east ridge route. I also got within 150 feet of the summit on the SW Couloir route, but was forced to retreat due to very threatening weather. Always wise to live to climb another day!
Anyway, I have been up and down nearly every side of Granite, and know the approaches intimately. If you have always wanted to do Granite Peak, or just want to do this route, please let me know, be happy to have you along.
My climbing partners are no longer interested in adventures such as this, so it's solo if I can't find partners. Done that many times in the past, but much more fun with others there to enjoy it also.
Have a good winter!
