Resident in Sacramento, former expat medical consultant in KSA, China & Europe, started mountaineering at UC Berkeley in early 70s (UC Hiking Club), member of SAC, DAV, AAV and NF/TV. Low pressure climber, into enjoying the experience.
Most experience in central Sierras, some in Swiss & Austrian Alps. Intermediate skill level in general mountaineering, modest rock climbing ability. No 'hard core' ice climbing experience.
Sierras, Shasta, Lassen, Bay Area.
Have not frequented indoor climbing facilities; most of my outdoor mountaineering is in the Sierras (Palisades, Sawtooth Ridge, etc.) and on Shasta. Have done some climbing on Mt. Tam and Indian Rock areas (Marin & Berkeley). Rock skills are a bit rusty, since I haven't been very active for years.
