Which aspects of mountaineering and backcountry sports are of most interest to you? -- (Hiking) (Backcountry Skiing) (Ice Climbing) (Rock Climbing) (Backpacking & Camping) ?

Rock climbing, hiking, backpacking and camping are my preference. But, I'd love to ice climb, and backcountry ski as my expertise and courage increases.

What is your level of mountaineering experience or other backcountry skills? -- (Novice) (Beginner) (Intermediate) (Advanced) (Pro)? (Feel free to add some specifics):

Beginner. I have a pretty high fitness level, and am a decent problem solver, but I need to learn the ropes, and gear intimidates me. I'd like to get to the point where I'd feel comfortable out on my own. I've never done anything in Winter.

What is your greatest achievement in the the mountains as of today?

I've done a few short backpacking trips, and scaled some easy summits in Utah.

What is you "next" greatest goal? Touch some summit? Backpack a trail?

I'd love to bump it up a notch! Get familiar with the New England wilderness. Learn better map skills, and go for some longer backpacking expeditions. Learn some winter skills!

What was your most epic, trip that gives you the cold sweats in the middle of the night?

I'm looking to find this! I've been playing it pretty safe...


A Utah transplant currently exploring Boston. An opera singer with a love for the wild. I want to get lost more often, and am looking for some new friends along the way. I love distance running, camping, climbing, and yoga.
