Hometown: Ft. Lauderdale, FL
August 6, 2009
I'm a rock/ice/mountain climber raised in Florida. I've summitted Mt. Hood, Mt. Washington (in winter), and attempted Mt. Rainier.
I want to hike up Mt. Washington and ride down on my splitboard. Hoping to do it this season, but haven't started making plans yet.
I'm a solid snowboarder and can get down anything inbounds at both east-cast and west-coast resorts without too much trouble (though I snowplow at the tops of some of the black diamonds). I've done a tiny bit of sidecountry snowboarding, but nothing beyond that. Hoping to change that w/ the splitboard I bought in 10/2010.
I've been a weekly gym climber for about 8 years. I've done about 2 dozen outdoor day trips. Mostly top-roped, but I've done some sport leading and trad seconding. This season I started trad leading and did a one-day aid climbing course. I've also done about 10 days worth of guided top-roped ice climbing in New Hampshire spread across a half-dozen or so weekend trips.
Looking Glass rock in North Carolina. It was my first outdoor climbimg experience and I was the middle guy in a 5-person team doing a 4-pitch trad climb in near-freezing temperatures. Epic!
Hi Adam, I have a random question: if I'm looking to borrow climbing shoes on a last-minute basis, is there an easy way to ask the Meetup Group? Mine are still en route to DC, but I want to go on an outdoor trip Saturday morning. Know anyone with size 11 W or 9.5M shoes that I can meet up with somewhere tomorrow? Thanks! - KC
Thanks for belaying me :)!
Thanks for your time last night at the gym. Had a blast!
Hi, again! The Wilderness Medicine Field Course is $250 for the 3 days Maryland course (Montgomery County and Frederick County Parks ) and $500 for the 7 day expanded medical "road trip" course held in the Mountains of Tropical Pennsylvania and West Virginia ( Ohiopyle and Coopers rock! )
