I am interested because I have been wanting to improve my mountaineering skills (being roped, for example), and to continue with mountaineering in general. I have snowshoes, crampons, and an ice-axe. However, I am not prepared to be roped, but I want to learn and experience it!
I regularly do hikes to Camp Muir and Mailbox Peak with friends, and I summited Mount Marcy in NY this past spring.
I've backpacked through Ireland and the UK, and scaled castles in Wales. I would love to travel to Norway or Sweden and do some mountaineering there. I have not lived overseas, but I will during 2013-2014. I speak German and I'm learning French.
As of right now, no, I do not know anyone in Peaks. However, I would like to! I have looked at the photos for this group and the kind of mountaineering you guys do is exactly what I'm looking for.

I love everything there is to hiking and mountaineering. No question.
