Looking for high sierra, ice, rock and skiing partners, year round or when seasons permit

I would like to do:

Clyde Minaret
Minarets in general
Mt. Lyell
Matthes Crest
Mt. Conness, N. Ridge
Sawtooths in general
Mt Thompson
Grand Tetons
and various big walls
There's more but, you get the idea

In the bigger picture I would like to hone my skills enough for things like:

and more

On rock I can follow up to about 10 a/b.

Ice, I have climbed up to WI3, I haven't tried anything harder yet, but didn't even come close to poping off WI3. Lead once on WI3 on the Bard/Harrington wall in Lee Vinning. I have practiced on some verglas and mixed climbing in the Truckee train tunnels.

Skiing, this is were I am least experienced, but love it just the same. On skis I am just intermidiate. I did do an awesome trip from Toga pass, through Lyle canyon, over Donahue pass, out to Mammoth mt. after being on skis maybe 5 or 6 times. That trip was one of the best events of my life. Well, besides ice and rock........I can never make up my mind as to which I like best???

Time, I have weekends off, and can occasionally take a fri or mon off.

I like boating too
paddle raft up to class 4 w/ good paddle captain, kayaking class 1-2, easy sea kayaking (Tomales Bay) would like to get good enough to do the inside passage someday.

Hey there! As soon as the roads clear up you should come on over! Cosumnes River Gorge is only 30 minutes away -- Lovers Leap is about 50 minutes. You're welcome to spend the night at the new place. Lots of wine too! :^) Carolyn
