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

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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!)

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!

Introduction

I'm a rock/ice/mountain climber raised in Florida. I've summitted Mt. Hood, Mt. Washington (in winter), and attempted Mt. Rainier.
