  1. Ski partners

    Looking for a few ski partners to tackle some day tours, overnight trips, weekend trips, etc. If there are any folks looking to get out Tuesdays, Fridays, or Saturday- Sunday, let me know. eric6mann@gmail.com I'm open to other ideas as well. Know your avy stuff please.
  2. Hey hey-- I'm looking for one or two solid partners for a number of trips this season, and if the shoe fits, into the coming years. I've been a mountaineer, climber, ski, splitboarder for many years here in the PNW and have recently altered my schedule to now have Mon-Thursday free to play. I am hoping to find a couple relaxed/chill experienced (or eager to learn but have rock/avy/crack rescue training) climbing/skiing partners who want to try to make a regular weekly schedule for this season and spring/summer. I emphasize relaxed and chill. It would be nice to push it but also enjoy the mountains. A couple of things I'm eyeing this winter/spring/summer: Ski Eldorado and possible work in Dorado Needle Torment - Forbidden Traverse Stuart (multiple routes) St Helens Ski car-to-summit Adams Ski car-to -summit, maybe climb Mazama glacier 5 Days at Smith Rock Ingalls Peak winter ski and summit from East ridge, overnight winter Tooth NE Corner w/ ski Chair Peak N. Face ski basin Winchester Lookout ski /overnight Hidden Lakes lookout ski/overnight Ruth Ski from summit (camp/laps) Shuksan summit Ski Baker summit ski Day ski trips Doado Needle Baker, North ridge Rainier ski from summit Vesper N. face Sloan peak ski I'd be more than excited to brainstorm other routes/trips with you that you might have on your list. Let's talk shop. email me at eric5mann@gmail.com Talk soon, Eric

  4. Wierd Hours? Need a partner?

  5. Looking for a climbing partner(s) who knows enough of what they are doing, and how to take care of themselves, to come w/ me on one-two objectives (possibly more as the summer goes on). Memorial day weekend (Friday-Monday). These aren't hard-core, they are more for fun. I'm also open to discussion if you want to try something else? I've got many years of both alpine climbing and mountaineering under my belt, with certs in wilderness medicine, x2 avvy, mtn, etc. I am looking for someone who is in the same boat. It would be nice to climb w/ someone chill, down to hit it hard but also slow down and enjoy and just be in the mountains, as well as have a chiller attitude and enjoys a good conversation. I've worked/climbed in the institutional setting, guided, and climb recreationally. I'm comfortable instructing and teaching a bit on nuances but would prefer someone who has a handle on their own systems etc. email me if any of the below stand out to you: eric5mann@gmail.com Olympus Baker- Coleman & N Ridge Shuksan- Fisher Chimneys E Ridge Ingalls Stewart any route N Butt of Colchuck Daniel- Lynch Glacier (also maybe 4-5 days mountain exploring w/ high lakes and other mountain objectives) Dorado Needle (link in Austera or Forbidden) My Buckner N. Face Couloir Index, Darington, Leavenworth, etc etc Or light and fast backpacking trips! I'm really open to making things happen and having a good time. Eric

    Last minute- it's going to be sunny tomorrow... any takers for some crag time at Exit 38 to refine those skills? I'm thinking sticking around 5.8 or 5.9 due to a recovering tendon.
