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

Bouldering, single and multi-pitch rock/ice climbing, hiking, snowshoeing, backpacking & camping.

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

Intermediate. I climb all year round and spend 2-3 days per week on a combination of climbing ice/rock - indoors/outdoors as well as Bouldering. Completed private lessons with AMGA guides for ice lead (2/2016) and multi-pitch trad leader course (6/2016). AMC Boston Rock Climbing (2013) and Ice Climbing (2014) programs, AMC Self-Rescue course (2013). Seconded ice & rock for 3 years. To date, I have hiked/snowshoed 34 of the[masked]ft peaks in the White Mountains - 14 of which were solo hikes. Have also hiked in my home state of Hawai'i & am a member of the Hawaiian Trail & Mountain Club.

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

Multi-pitch climbing Cannon; Willard; Huntington Ravine; Frankenstein; Cathedral, Whitehorse & White's Ledges; Eaglet Spire, Lake Willoughby; Rainbow Slabs; Longstack Precipice; Gunks as well as 11-Mile Canyon in CO. Summited a Colorado 14er, Mt. Sherman 14,036ft (7/15). Mt. Katahdin via Hunt Trail (8/15), 3 day/2 night - 9 summits - 21 mi. Presi Range Traverse (7/14). Solo hiking.

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

Ice/rock climbing/hiking in US National Parks; glacier travel; climb/backpack/peakbag more Colorado 14ers; section of John Muir trail; hike Mt. Rainier, Mauna Kea, Mauna Loa, Haleakala, Kalalau Trail. Also, do more waterfall rappelling!

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



Addicted to multi-pitch ice/rock climbing. Although I hike, I don't consider myself a hiker. Took up hiking a year after I started climbing only because was told that I had to "hike" to get to climbing crags. Go figure! SOLO/WFA & AHA-CPR/AED cert.
