MOUNTAIN ADVENTURE PHILOSOPHY THUS FAR

Initially began top-roping into trees with protection for the purpose or arborculture; now climb recreationally more for the purpose of exploration/scenery/endurance than for the technical skill/physicality/difficulty aspects; historically I've always preferred to route-find the easiest way to the top; thus, prefer class 1-3 dirt trails/scrambles any season with a little class 1-3 snowfields spring/summer only; have preferred to move solo, light and as fast (as possible!), so possibly will dread carrying the steel and rope if not absolutely necessary

GOALS

Would eventually like to move out of my comfort zone and apply/practice technical skills/self-rescue knowledge learnt from 'Freedom of the Hills' for possible eventual and unavoidable glacier traverse

IDEAL PARTNERS FOR ME THEORETICALLY

If you think you're about equal, or a little more or less advanced in your professional and/or mountain career thus far, don't hesitate to message me--we'll probably both be learning/practicing the new skills we want to learn. If you're much more advanced, message me if you think I would play a good support role, want good company/conversation, and not be a liability to your team. And of course, if you're currently also in the San Francisco Bay Area, contact me about carpooling!
