I'd like to meet people locally who are on another level of hiking, mountaineering, and/or climbing. This summer I've done prep work to climb Mount Blanc in late September. Due to early abundant accumulation of snow and shelter being prematurely closed I've decided to give up. My intention is to pursue this passion and gradually attain theoretical and practical experience eventually making it to the 8000 m above the sea level. It's not a common passion hence I decided to use meetup to find similar people. If you feel like sharing knowledge and maybe even joining me in one of the high mountain trips please join this group and lets get to know each other better for that is critical in rough high altitude conditions.
