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

I go indoor rock climbing once or twice a week but have yet to graduate to outdoor, and I am interested in rock climbing as well as hiking, backpacking, and camping.

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

Novice/Beginner--I have a passion for the outdoors and being active and am just finding outlets for doing so. I am looking for great experiences, but also am aiming to learn something along the way.

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

I hiked to the peak of Tecumseh in New Hampshire several years ago. I am currently working on my indoor rock climbing skills as well.

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

My next greatest goals would be to hike another 4000', do an overnight backpacking trip, and attempt to climb outdoors.

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

It's not a trip, but I have a fear of heights so indoor rock climbing was initially terrifying for me. But every time I go, I am fighting that fear back further and further away from my mind. Facing that fear has been difficult but every time I leave that gym I feel wonderfully empowered.


Hi! I am an outdoorsy recent college grad looking for like-minded outdoorsy people to be outdoorsy with. I am looking to make new friends and live a more active lifestyle. This looks like a great group to do so with!
