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

I would love to go get on any of the Northwest Volcanoes!

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

Yeah! Love skiing in the backcountry. Diehard drop knee tree faerie here! I used to patrol at Berthoud Pass CO (Google it if don't know!) where I helped teach the medial and avalanche classes. My favorite trips have always been spending a few days at any of the Alfred A Braun huts back behind Aspen (part of the 10th mtn div hut system).

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

Been climbing off and on for about 20 years. I enjoy hanging on mellow trad.

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!)

Rainier after the 3rd attempt via the Emmons-Winthrop route, private trip, just 2 of us. We were the only team to summit on this route that day. The sunrise when were were around 11,000 ft and above the clouds was something that I will always remember. That and post-holeing one leg through a snow bridge!


I love all sorts of outdoor activities Hiking,Backpacking, Climbing, Skiing, Rafting etc... I am looking forward to meeting some like minded folks in the DC area.
