Are you in good physical condition

Yep, try to stay that way. That can always improve, of course, but I get out several times a week for hikes to gain elevation with my dog and ski, bike, paddle, etc. Hit the rock gym occasionally.

Have you hiked above 13k feet

Climbed two routes on The Grand, 13,770', but that was way back in '97 or '98. Carried all our gear and camped at elevation, so I think that helped. Never felt the elevation at all. Live at 6,200' when in Jackson, 4,600' in SLC. My next attempt above 13k, Long's Peak wasn't until this last summer, had some challenges. Had been at sea level for prior 2 weeks, so that may have been a factor. Probably wasn't well rested, hydrated, or fed enough. Started above 9k at 1a for the Keyhole Rt. Snow and rain higher up. Made it to the stone hut where I experienced nausea. Waited for light but weather didn't improve, so we went down. Felt better as I descended the next morning.

How much hiking experience do you have

Colorado Outward Bound 3 weeks in high school. Have hiked quite a bit in the Tetons & BTNF since moving to Jackson. Hike several times a week when in SLC. Climb in the Wasatch summers.

Do you have the ten essentials

I think I have the 40 essentials...multiples of the 10, then some. Must learn to pack lighter!

Introduction

Hi, I'm Liz. I currently live in Salt Lake City and Jackson, WY, but get over to CO occasionally. I love peak bagging & would enjoy having other folks to do 14'ers & other great hikes with.Really enjoy being around Colorado folks,most genuine people!
