Where would you like your next mountaineering adventure to be? Is it a daydream, or a firming-up plan?
Daydream. New England or Washington state.
Have you done any skiing in the backcountry -- if so, where?
XC in New Germany State Park.
Have you done any rock/ice climbing? (Not a pre-requisite, but helpful -- and you have to be willing to learn.)
I'm a rock-climber. I can set it up for top-rope, but haven't lead sport in years.
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!)
Failing to summit Kilimanjaro due to a cold. Very disappointing, but it was still awesome to see lion prints on the hike down, and realize I was following a lion down the mountain, unarmed.
