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

Peru or Bolivia in summer 2013.

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

No, not really.... only some out of bounds snowboarding in CO.

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

Some, but need more experience, especially on ice. I'd like to be able to climb the more technical mountains.

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!)

Cotopaxi, because I felt like I spent a whole year climbing it...Was in Ecuador in 08 for 1week. Came back and did everything necessary to quit my job, sell my house, stuff, and find a home for my dog...12 months later I was there on the summit!


I quit my job for 3 years years so I could travel and climb mountains. Started living and working in DC July 2012. Would like to know others in the area for training hikes, or mountaineering. Trying not to let work totally get in the way of life!
