I enjoy being in the mountains and challenging myself. I have mountaineering boots, snowshoes, crampons, and an ice axe. I'm ready to be roped up with people I trust.
In, this area, I've done a winter summit of Mount Hood and Mount Adams, summer summit of South Sister twice, St Helens (summer and winter summits), Mount Baker, Brothers and Mount Ellinor. I have my eye on Shuksan, Eldorado, Mount Shasta and the peaks of the Olympics.
I know the climbing areas of Durban, South Africa and Cape Town, South Africa quite well. I've been backpacking pretty much every pass in the South African Drakensberg Mountains (elevation ~10,000 ft). I'm aiming to return to Namibia to climb at Spitzkoppe (big sandstone mountain) and want to do some mountaineering in the Japanese Alps. In the US, I'm planning to visit Joshua Tree sometime, climb at Yosemite and backpack in the Trinity Alps. I just need more leave time!
No, I don't know anybody yet. The group looks well put together, not too big and with similar interests.
Waiver has been signed.
Hi! I'm in Seattle via Oregon via South Africa. I rock climb, ice climb, hike, backpack, seakayak and pretty much anything outdoors.
Great group of people
