City or Place: Idyllwild
Skill Level: Intermediate

Partner Status: Want Partners


I'm looking for somebody to help me break into winter/ice/snow mountaineering or just a climbing partner. My climbing buddies aren't into winter climbing.

My goal this Winter/Spring is to do some easy/moderate snow and ice mountaineering routes around Tahquitz, Suicide, and San Jacinto. I've practiced using crampons and ice axe on non-technical terrain. I would like to move up to some class 4 and easy class 5 stuff. Ultimate goal... ascending San Jacinto via Snow Creek.

As for rock climbing, I'm leading 5.8 trad and can follow/TR 5.10b/c. I've done several multipitch routes on Tahquitz and Suicide. I'm certain I'll be going to JTree a bunch of times this winter so give me a shout if you want to meet up for that.

I live in Idyllwild and have a pretty flexible work schedule if given enough notice. If you come up to Idyllwild for climbing, I can give you a bed and food. I live less than 1/2 mile from the southern end of Ernie Maxwell trail so I've always got access to Tahquitz, even in heavy snow before the roads are plowed.

I'm looking for a mountaineering partner that can work as a team with me as we gain extra skills and experience. Ever climbed Baldy bowl? I have no plans this weekend if you want to climb... let me know.

I'm still climbing and looking forward to the winter season. I'll be available to climb in early-mid January and afterward. I've been thinking of doing the north side gully of Tahquitz a few times for some class 3 work.

I've never been to Baldy or Gorgonio and I now have a car so that is possible now. I'm still wanting to do snow creek if I can get a reliable partner. I'm also willing to go up to the
sierra this spring for some climbing.

Personal Message me any replies, I forget to check this page often.
