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

Hiking is definitely one of them, although I do want to become more proficient at ice and rock climbing.

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

Beginner/Intermediate. Summited several peaks. Have not done any overnighters yet.

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

My first multi-pitch ice climb. Topped out and had to get below tree line before a storm hit. 13 hour day. A very long day indeed.

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

Got to summit Lafayette on my own. First mountain in the White's I ever summited.

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

I would say my first mult-pitch ice climb. Got boot bash coming down. Made coming down Lion Head trail in the dark all the more interesting.
