I have been trying to get involved in more adventurous backpacking and peak bagging trips but didn't grow up with anyone who was interested in outdoor sports and thought that the SMC would be a good place learn from people who are more seasoned at mountaineering rather than just go out myself and try to learn on the fly. Also being a biology major I do field research and have a special interest in mountain ecosystems and being able to traverse these high altitude areas will look good on a resume and could help me get the job I want.
My name is Aaron Howse I am 22 and currently finishing up my undergraduate degree in Evolutionary Biology at California State University Sacramento. I am a former college football athlete and I try to remain active in new sports.
