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

Glacier Peak. I've actually been out twice to climb it but had weather related issues that stopped it even before we hit the trailhead (road was washed out!).

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

I haven't.

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

Long time indoor rock climber. Some outdoor experience (not as much as I'd like). Some ice climbing experience up around NY.

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!)

My first was Mt. Hood and you never forget your first but aside that, the most memorable was a winter ascent of Katahdin. First time using a ski pulk for a trip. We were a group of 4 and we saw someone at the trailhead on the day in and on the day out, but didn't see a single other soul the 5 days we were out.

Introduction

I've been mountaineering for a couple years and have always been at home in the mountains even though I don't currently live there. Just looking to connect up with people with similar interests.
