Which aspects of mountaineering and backcountry sports are of most interest to you? -- (Hiking) (Backcountry Skiing) (Ice Climbing) (Rock Climbing) (Backpacking & Camping) ?

Rock climbing, hiking, and backpacking. I am relatively new to caving, canyoneering, and mountaineering, but I'm looking to improve those skills!

What is your level of mountaineering experience or other backcountry skills? -- (Novice) (Beginner) (Intermediate) (Advanced) (Pro)? (Feel free to add some specifics):

Advanced: Backpacking, hiking, alpine skiing Intermediate: Top rope rock climbing (plenty of experience with outdoor top roping, rappelling, setting anchors) Intermediate: lead climbing (lead belay / lead climb certified. Consistently leading 5.8-5.9. No experience with trad, yet)

What is your greatest achievement in the the mountains as of today?

Top roping 5.10's and 5.11's at Otter Cliff in Acadia. Hiked a handful of 14'ers

What is you "next" greatest goal? Touch some summit? Backpack a trail?

Learn trad lead climbing, then complete a multi-pitch.

What was your most epic, trip that gives you the cold sweats in the middle of the night?

10 day hiking trip in death valley and mojave. I've never seen such beauty and diversity in the terrain.
