I'm living in Durango for the summer and am looking for a partner(s) for snow climbs and backpacking trips that have high summits as goals. I don't have rock climbing experience beyond unroped scrambling, but have accomplished a great many long distances treks and high summits already, as well as great multitudes of shorter backpacking trips in all different kinds of environments at all times of year. I wouldn't mind learning some technical climbing with a mentor, especially rappeling from class 4 summits and crevasse rescue techniques (as I've already done several glaciated peaks but wasn't roped in!), but technical climbing isn't really my primary focus. If you're looking for a long-term partner, well, I live along the Front Range most of the year (unfortunately), so I wouldn't really be out of reach. Aconcagua is planned for this coming northern hemisphere winter, as well.

I'm looking to do some summits in your area. I'm thinking about doing an overnight of Sneffels, but am open to ideas. I don't plan on doing anything too technical.

yesmountainpigeon peak possibility
I wonder if we could get up Pigeon Peak and back to Durango in one day by catching the early train up and catching the late train down? Or overnight then catch the train back. Let me know if you are interested. I may also be headed for the Andes in 2012
