I've been away in the Army for the past 4 years and 3 months, 2 years in Iraq. Just did some soloing around Bozeman Thursday. I feel confident in leading grade 4 ice at the moment, 5 when I'm back in shape and in better form. Not really planning on any alpine until spring but I'm open to any ideas. Don't ski but am learning to this year even if it means neglecting my board.
Went climbing in around Chatanooga, AL a month ago and was climbing 5.7 with bad form. Led a single pitch of a trad route of unknown difficulty while teaching an Army buddy the basics of rock climbing.
I don't know any of you in person as I learned most of what I know past the basics in Europe. PM me if interested or get a hold of me at (253) 459-2685. Really interested in doing some more mixed routes this season.
