What is your experience level with hiking? With backpacking? Rock climbing?

Strenuous day hikes, multi-day backpacking trips, peak bagging, indoor rock climbing, some outdoor climbing, and have done a little ice climbing. I'm not looking to be a professional. However, I'm always looking to expand my abilities/limits/experience, within reason.

Tell us a little about yourself and what you'd like to get out of this group.

Would like to meet new people, take new hikes and trips, learn new outdoor sports & skills, and expand repertoire.

Where do you live?


Do you agree that while we maintain strict safety protocols that injuries may occur and all members are personally responsible for their own safety?


Are you interested in leading/helping out with hikes, camping/backpacking trips, or other events?



I'm a queer guy who's always getting into all sorts of outdoor things and plenty more :) I'm also a bionic athlete who hears through Advanced Bionics cochlear implants. I live for adventure and love to play in the outdoors.

What Alex is saying about this Meetup Group

Not only is this group friendly, but it is inclusive, supportive of one another, and well-organized. A do it all group, no matter how easy or difficult the event is, no matter how technical the skill is or not, it's about experiencing, learning, and most of all, making sure that everyone has a positive experience wherever they are in their journey. It takes a special energy to keep that going, and I'm so happy that I joined this group.
