Where would you like your next mountaineering adventure to be? Is it a daydream, or a firming-up plan?

Go to Whitney for a week with skis and trad gear - hike up to Iceberg lake, hike up and ski down the coloir and climb the east face.

Have you done any skiing in the backcountry -- if so, where?

no, never.

Have you done any rock/ice climbing? (Not a pre-requisite, but helpful -- and you have to be willing to learn.)

rock climbing indoors and at Red River Gorge. Done classical mountaineering, but no vertical ice involved.

What is your most memorable summit? (Yes, they are all memorable... But we are interested in your mountaineering/technical experience, so let us know about that hard one!)

Mt. Whitney - mountaineers route. Only made it to right below the notch though.

Introduction

Just moved to DC for work. Red River Gorge was home away from home, but what I really love are the snow covered peaks. Above the tree line is where I find my sanity. It's been missing for a while.

What Simon is saying about this Meetup Group

very berry good.
