Partner Status: Want Partners


I’m looking for a partner for July 29 through August 5, 2007, for any of several objectives in NW Wyoming or SW Montana. I’m very flexible on objectives, but have no flexibility on the dates. It would be nice, but is not essential, if the objective included some moderate technical climbing.

Possible objectives include, in order of preference:

Granite Peak

Younts Peak (no 5th class necessary here, I don’t think, provided proper routefinding. But long, remote approach in grizzly country.)

Gannett Peak

any moderate technical summit(s) found in Turiano’s Select Peaks of Greater Yellowstone

any non-technical summits in the Absarokas, Beartooths, Tetons, Winds, Madisons, Gallatins, Gravellys. Open to suggestions. At this point I expect to be able to begin a trip from either Jackson or Bozeman.

Presently climbing at about 5.7 on toprope. No lead climbing experience – partner would get to do all of the leading. Have seconded multi-pitch climbs at 5.4 (Grand Teton, Owen-Spalding, guided); at 5.6 (Mt. Moran, CMC, guided), and a pitch or two at 5.8 (Baxter’s Pinnacle, guided). Would strongly prefer a moderate route, 5.6 or below.

I’m a strong, fit, fast (for 48) hiker.

Multiple partners would be fine; for the moment I have no particular idea in mind about the size of the party. If I could join a group of friends/locals/SPers that would be great. Local knowledge a big plus.
