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

Mt. Rainier, perhaps Cotopaxi, the Tetons...

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

Just part of Tuckerman Ravine. However, I've been skiing inbounds for 26 years.

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

Yes to both. Can lead Seneca 5.3/5.4. Top rope only for ice climbing.

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!)

Mount Washington in the winter and a (windy) attempt on Mt Rainier in July 2010. The south summit of Seneca Rocks is a favorite, too - excluding the last 20 feet of slick rock. My first few leads at Seneca and the Gunks were also memorable.

Introduction

I'm a big fan of the outdoors and I'm looking for a group of people who enjoy more involved adventures.
