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

Would like to climb Mt. Washington in winter, but trip looks like it will be put off until next year. Hoping to get a lot of hiking in the DC area in this summer.

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

No backcountry skiing experience. Novice downhill skier, though would like to get more experience. Grew up cross country skiing and still enjoy it.

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

Began rock climbing this year really enjoying it so far. Definitely willing to learn more.

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!)

Hiking up to Table Rock in North Carolina about ten years ago. Not a huge peak, but was my first hike in the Blue Ridge Mountains, and an absolutely beautiful day. Also, hiking around Zermatt, Switzerland in the fog towards the Matterhorn.


From Boston, though have always loved spending time in the mountains. Grew up visiting the NH White Mountains often, and lived in the Alps for eight months before grad school. Looking to find others who love to be outdoors!
