Why are you interested in Rock & Snow Scrambles and Mountaineering? Do you have heavy shoes, snowshoes, crampons and an ice-axe, are you ready to be roped up?

I enjoy the psychological challenges that mountains and wilderness can provide. Exposing yourself to a beautiful environment that is entirely indifferent to you and your motivations can restore some humility when you're feeling pretty good about yourself. I doubt I need to mention the more obvious rewards. Got boots, snowshoes, crampons, and an ice-axe and welcome the rope.

We do advanced Hikes, Scrambles & SnowShoe Trips. Please list some of the bigger hikes or scambles you have done in the winter and summer.

Summer: Rainier, Adams, Baker, Hood, Glacier, Shuksan, Stuart, Maude, Seven Fingered Jack, Black Peak, North Gardner, Gardner, Silver Star, Dragontail, Mesahchie, Colchuck, Argonaut, and other Bulgers. Winter: Baring, Persis, Nimbus, Spark Plug, Snoqualmie, Silver-Abiel-Humpback Traverse, Web, McCausland, Defiance, etc. Would like to do more winter climbs.

Have you done some International Adventure Travel? Where have you been or would like to go? Have you lived overseas? Speak any foreign language?

Haven't done much adventure travel...yet. I lived in Spain for a year and have spent time in other European countries, Mexico, Ecuador, Argentina, and Puerto Rico. I speak Spanish.

Do you know anybody in Peaks. There are many hiking meetup groups... have you looked at Peaks'Photo pages and are these type of hikes that you like? Why do you want to join this Peaks Group?

Peaks seems like a group interested in outings involving a bit more commitment than Mt. Si and the other usual suspects along I-90. From the comments, I gather that safety is a priority and that there are some folks in this group who have a lot of mountaineering experience. Seems like a good place to learn from others with more experience while helping those with less.

In consideration of right to participate in the activities offered by ePeaks Meetup Group, I agree to RELEASE, HOLD HARMLESS AND INDEMNIFY ePeaks Meetup Group, its members and organizers from any and all liability: (Your full name)
