I am set on ascending the full West Rib on Denali and then skiing the West Butt or the Messner Couloir this May. I currently have 3 climbing partners in Seattle that might want to join, but because they are not sure, I am seeking more partners. I can host you until I go to Yosemite in April if you aren't from the PNW. I am based out of Seattle, fully available, and keen as beans to do literally everything outdoors. I lead WI4+, 5.11 trad and sport, and have vowed to never walk off a skiable mountain again. I have very comfortably led the Kautz, North Ridge of Baker, and solo'd lots of the ice routes up hood. I also have a family cabin by Index that we can take full advantage of. If interested, I would want to run laps on all the zesty routes on Rainier and do several of the big North Cascade traverses to dial teamwork and logistics. I have led trips on many of the big ticket items in the PNW, but I am looking for partnerships where each person gives 60% and want to make sure were dialed before skiing the spice. My dream route is the Cassin ridge, so lets talk if that's in your ballpark. as a note, baseline costs for doing Denali unguided are looking like 2-3k MINIMUM, and I'm budgeting for a comfortable 5k. Feel free to text or call me 206819165five, Were putting in permits around the first week of march or so.
