I am experienced in solos, expeditions, day hikes, backpacks, rock and ice climbs. I try to get out hiking, climbing, and cycling as much as possible.
I prefer day hikes. I do not like to bushwhack.
I would like to get out to larger mountains, but just don't have the time right now. Next mountain climb: Rainier August 2016.
For me without question, Denali on summit day. 20 hours up and back, resulting in hypoxia and dehydration.
I have organized hikes and climbs for several Meetup groups in the past. I am certified WFA, AIARE 1, AMC co-leader, lead 5.7 rock, lead WI3 ice.
I've been hiking and climbing since the '80's. While I have been to many places worldwide, my heart is in the White Mountains.
