Intermediate. I climb all year round and spend 2-3 days per week on a combination of climbing ice/rock - indoors/outdoors as well as Bouldering.

To date, I have hiked/snowshoed 34 of the[masked]ft peaks in the White Mountains - 14 of which were solo hikes. Have also hiked in my home state of Hawai'i & am a member of the Hawaiian Trail & Mountain Club.
Multi-pitch climbing Cannon; Willard; Huntington Ravine; Frankenstein; Cathedral, Whitehorse & White's Ledges; Eaglet Spire, Lake Willoughby; Rainbow Slabs; Longstack Precipice; Gunks as well as 11-Mile Canyon in CO.

Ice/rock climbing/hiking in US National Parks; glacier travel; climb/backpack/peakbag more Colorado 14ers; section of John Muir trail; hike Mt. Rainier, Mauna Kea, Mauna Loa, Haleakala, Kalalau Trail. Also, do more waterfall rappelling!
Addicted to multi-pitch ice/rock climbing. Although I hike, I don't consider myself a hiker. Took up hiking a year after I started climbing only because was told that I had to "hike" to get to climbing crags. Go figure! SOLO/WFA & AHA-CPR/AED cert.
Love this meetup! Jay and Kristie do a great job of setting up meetups to meet and climber with others!
