My favorite part of hiking and climbing is wonderful the landscapes, and the satisfaction that you have to get there with your own two feet.
Intermediate skills in French Technique, crevasse rescue, traveling on a rope team, rock anchors, snow/ice anchors .
Climbing Mount Baker and the Liberty Bell group in Washington in August
Learn to ice climb
Trapped in a serious lighting storm just below tree line at night. A 2 hour lightening drill ensued, followed by lots of jumping jacks, and a sleepless night.
I'm a MA native and have the love the mountains since my college days in VT. Backpacker turned aspiring alpinist.
