have all the equipment from easy hike to 8000m peak! 15+ years of experience climbing and mountaineering
25,000 ft without O2 on Cho Oyu (Tibet) Ama Dablam (Nepal) Denali (Alaska) Mt Blanc and multiple peaks in Alps Im more of a big mountain climber than a pure rock climber and i havent rock climbed in a while due to a skiing accident, so this season im taking it easy on technical climbs
Himalayas, Andes, Alps, Kili... native French speaker, lived in France, UK and US
Ideally I want to meet people who are already quite experienced with long and hard hikes, scrambles and mountaineering/rock climbing techniques, and who would like to meet another fellow mountaineer and count me as a trip/ropemate. While I am happy to learn from the more experienced and lend my own experience, I would love to try to meet some people who are at or around my level so that there is no expectation of "teaching" either way. Just a group of people who are self sufficient and want to build a community at whatever level they are at or want to progress to the next level. Finally, i dont know many people here in the area so i look forward to making new friends out of the local climbing community.
30-something with a passion for, and experience in the mountains. looking for friends and rope partners for climbing, mountaineering, backcountry skiing or just the occasional scramble or hike.
