What type of backpacking equipment are you willing to share?

Potentially all of the above, but only to those I am on a trip with, know or trust. Break it, you bought it. May require a deposit/wear and tear fee for some gear.

Where have you been backpacking?

Wasatch Range, High Uintas, Wind River Range, Zion, Capitol Reef, Idaho Sawtooths, Glacier National Park, Cascades, Olympics, Redwood forest, Oregon, Great Basin National Park, Virginia, Starved Rock State Park in winter

Where would you like to go backpacking?

All of the above again, especially Zion (Narrows, Paranuweap, Fat Man's Misery, Bridge Mountain, Lady Mountain), the Cascades, and the Pickets. Will be local to Utah most of the next year+. Want to do more canyoneering because mountains are hard on the body.

What type of special skills do you have (e.g. CPR certified, scuba certified, can build a snow cave, etc.)

Route finding/invention/bushwhacking, classic map and compass skills, can lead technical climbing up to 5.6 or so without protection (if necessary), comfortable and confident in alpine terrain from deserts to glaciers. Beginner ski ability, decent rock climber, great in crampons.


Mountaineer, canyoneer, ice climb, free climb, ski, snowshoe, etc. Like to cook, take photos.
