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?

Nothing clears my head like getting above the treeline, breathing in crisp mountain air and being able to see for miles around. I own heavy shoes, crampons, ice axe, harness (& carabiners, prussiks, etc) and plenty of camping / backpacking gear but do not currently own any showshoes.

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

Everest Base Camp trek in Nepal, Torres del Paine circuit in Patagonia, 2 failed summit bids on Mt. Shasta in California (due to weather)

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

I lived and worked in Vietnam for 5 years and had the opportunity to travel throughout Southeast Asia. I did a number of multi-day treks in Cambodia, Laos and Thailand and climbed Mt. Kinabalu in Malaysia and Fansipan in Vietnam. In addition to English, I speak Vietnamese and 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?

I don't know anyone in Peaks but after looking through your photos, it looks like you guys know how to have fun in the Cascades. Some of those views are absolutely fantastic. I understand that many of the popular local hikes can get rather congested but it seems like you guys tend to favor more challenging and less traveled routes. I'd love to be able to get out there with you all.

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)

Introduction

I've always loved the mountains but for most of my life I've lived in altitude challenged geographies. Earlier this year, I decided to rectify this problem by packing up all my things and moving from Houston to Seattle. Good morning Cascades!
