Meeting people with similar interests in Alaska that enjoy being eyeballs deep in the mountains..my favorite place. I run game trails to access high elevation and reach the tops the fastest. I know all the plants and animal tracks from growing up in the woods up here. Know the area very well. I want to explore more. Longer treks. Big walls. Big ice. Want to do the Eklutna traverse. Want to climb Marcus Baker. Learning to Telemark Ski. Snow cave camping. Portaledge's. Jungle Hammocks.love rappelling, ascending single lines with friction knots like prussic and klemheist knots..want to cross glaciers..climb ice..go under the glacier..navigate the Bergschrund..and go vertical..portaledges..bolting routes..cleaning them and making them safer..telemark skiing is in my near future.
Born in a log cabin up on Hatchers Pass winter 1969 grew up in the valley moved to Puget Sound area in 86 climbed all throughout the Cascade and the Olympic Ranges also the Siskiyou's in So. Oregon..mainly solo and free climbing zero fall protection.
