Short and Long day hikes. Winter hikes when my job allows. May consider other stuff as well.
I've grown up in the Catskills and have hiked for about 30 years. I mostly do day hikes of about 6-10 miles but can endure more and have hiked further on vacations. I excel on rock scrambles. I don't know how to rate trail difficulty but unless it goes straight up (and I don't have rope) its not too difficult. I've done some mountaineering and top roping but never lead climbing or ice climbing. I've been caving since 1992 and was a member of the National Speleological Society.
Intermediate - depends on the terrain. I usually advance beyond others on hard terrain. On flat terrain I keep up or get passed. I'm looking to improve my Cardio.
I enjoy Hiking, Mountain/Road Biking, Kayaking, Caving and Rock Scrambling. It's been a while since I've been camping/backpacking but enjoy that as well. Looking to meet new people who share in my interests!
The members I have met so far are all really great people! Look forward to hiking with them again sometime.
