Activity Details

Dates: Aug 1, 2012 through Oct 31, 2012
City or Place: North Cascades NP
Skill Level: Intermediate, Advanced
Categories: Mountaineering
Partner Status: Need Partners


Specifically, I'm looking for somebody interested in climbing Shuksan, Snowfield, Eldorado or similar objectives in August or September.

More generally: my current climbing partner doesn't have the time he used to and I'd definitely like to find some other people to go climbing with on a regular basis. My strengths lie in general mountaineering but I'm looking to get some more straight up rock experience under my belt too (stuff like Forbidden or Logan things like that). I have plenty of gear and a lot of snow/glacier/scrambling experience. I even trained up to be a mountain guide but didn't end up doing it. However I do have WFR and Avalanche Level 1 certfications as a result of that. I'm also pretty good at teaching others so I'd be happy to coach someone on glacier travel and rescue techniques if needed.

If anybody in the Seattle area is interested please send me a message and we can chat. I try to get out as much as possible in the summer but am still probably an (extended) weekend warrior when it comes down to it. I do spend most of my free time dreaming about climbing but I don't think that counts :-)

I can go on few of those peaks with you in late August or early September on two consecutive weekends or in one long week push. There is possibility I could go as soon as Aug. 17 but it will depend on some answers I will get from other posts and my preparations.
If interested send me PM or email at ChrisMtnx@gmail.com
