I don't have any intention of climbing Mt. Everest - for a number of reasons. My daydream is to climb Cotopaxi and Chimborazo. Chimborazo being closest to the sun and farthest from the center of the earth - that will be my Everest!
Ice climbing in New Paltz. Rock climbing in New Hampshire, Maine, West Virginia.
Getting to the top of either WhiteHorse or Cathedral Ledge during an epic 10-day climbing marathon. We topped out in the rain, with the last 30 feet being an unprotected scramble on a sunny day, but fairly treacherous during a deluge. Still, the entire trip was great fun, and I'd definitely like to climb there again.
I'm making a living running adventure programs locally in the DC metro area, but ironically I don't get out for too many new adventure myself. Although my schedule is pretty full, I'm definitely wanting to work towards climbing a big mountain!
