All of the above
I have quite a bit of mountaineering experience - I've climbed about 70 peaks in the Sierra Nevada. Outside California, I've climbed the Grand Teton (Upper Exum route), Mts. Rainier, Hood and Adams. Internationally, I've climbed Orizaba and Ixta (Mexico), Triglav (Slovenia), Cerro Chirripo (Costa Rica), Kilimanjaro (Tanzania) and rockclimbed in Yangshou, China and at the Grampians NP (Australia--my birthplace). I've done canyoneering in Death Valley, Zion NP and locally in the San Gabriel mountains.
I enjoy climbing challenging peaks in the Sierra Nevada (over rock or snow), and also desert peaks. I'm an M-rated leader in the SPS and a WTC group leader. I also enjoy 5th class climbing, canyoneering and biking.
