What mountaineering skills interest you the most: rope travel, ice ax arrest, snow camping, trip planning, wilderness medicine, or crevasse rescue.

All of the above; esp. rope travel and crevasse rescue.

Are you familiar with what you need in your backpack to be comfortable and self sufficient for a long day hike? Have you been on many long day hikes?

Yes and yes.

Are you comfortable on steep snow and ice? How would you characterize your attitude toward being up high?

Yes. I am confident but careful.

How likely is it that you can make it to the top of Mt Si with a 35 pound pack in 2.5 hours with one being very likely and five being very unlikely?

I am around 100 pounds so if the pack were 25 I would say 1.

What would you like from this Meetup group?

Mountaineering skills that would help me to summit taller peaks

Introduction

I'm a student at Seattle U, and I live in Issaquah. I've always loved being active in the outdoors, especially running, hiking, camping and, more recently, climbing. I would like to summit taller peaks in the NW and become more of a mountaineer.
