Hiking, Rock Climbing, Ice Climbing, Backpacking and Camping
Hiking - Advanced/Pro, I lead hiking and backpacking trips Backpacking and Camping - Advanced/Pro, 5 years of guiding experience with youth Rock Climbing - Intermediate, started climbing 9 years ago but really only consistently about a year ago, consistent 5.8/5.9 climber on TR, will lead up to 5.7 sport or trad (need to borrow gear), or second for multi-pitch Ice Climbing - Beginner/Intermediate, just started this year, can climb WI3/4 Mountaineering - Beginner, have done winter hikes in the White Mountains and some mountaineering in Ecuador
I summited Cotopaxi (19,347 feet), and have trekked in the Himalayas as well. My winter summit of Mount Washington had the coldest temperatures. I also biked across the United States in 2009, which meant going over Hoosier Pass at 11,000+ feet, gaining from sea level.
I want to climb 5.10 consistently outdoors on real rock and be able to lead 5.8 sport and trad routes comfortably.
Probably the few times I almost died while biking across the United States. But really every experience I have has been awesome and I don't freak out about them too much.
I'm a 27 year old outdoor enthusiast and AMC & AAC member looking to meet other people with similar interests and wishing to explore more of New England.
