Philipp posted a topic in Climbing PartnersHi together, I am planning a trip to the US and looking for mountaineers to team up for Mount Jefferson, Hood, Adams, Helens and Rainer in September. Maybe it is to much for 5 weeks? I do not know yet. I am still in planning phase. I am comming from Europe, Austria and normally climb 1600(4900)-1800hm(5900ft) per day. So I am normally well trained. Just made lots of mountains here in the alps for about 20years. I have climbed Gran Paradiso, Weissmies, Mont Blanc, Monte Rosa, Wildspitze, Ortler and some more classics and much more... I am also trained well in glacier mountain climbing. I do not have lots of experience in camping on glaciers because in the alps we have mountain huts in nearly every region. But I already have the equipment for glacier camping. So maybe if anybody want`s to team up with me for one or more of these nice mountains on a beginner or advanced route, or can give any kind of good advice. I would be happy to hear from you. Philipp
Hello, I am planning a climb up Mt. Hood via the Wy'East route. My fiance and I have climbed several mountains in the PNW, most notably we have made several attempts up Mt. Adams, climbed St. Helens a few times, and South Sister as well. The technical requirements have been minimal, requiring only helmets, ice axes, and crampons. So, I am looking at Wy'East as a route to progress our skills. In a nutshell, I am looking for advice from folks as to what gear is required and what level of expertise is required for the "easiest" variation (cross white glacier and follow ridgeline up to summit) I have read many reports and it seems that depending on which variation you decide, Wy'East can be more technical requiring ice climbing or less technical requiring only glacier travel across White Glacier and then 2 steep pitches (50-60 degrees) requiring a simple snow anchor set-up. I am thinking this route may be too advanced and I might be better off looking for a mentor/climbing partner to take us up rather than learn the required skills on my own. But, any information you can give would help inform my decision. Thanks!
Wayne Rowlatt posted a topic in Climbing Partnershi, I am a very keen amateur climber \ mountaineer from England with experience and looking to climb Hood with a partner(s) anytime between 11th and 24th May 2021. Have gear and insurance etc, i'd like to climb the South Side from Timberline. I am happy to pay someone and \ or cover costs. Could do this on my own but would prefer the security of having someone with experience with me. Thanks, Wayne
Dear All, We are visiting OHSU in Portland for work, on July 18. Would love to stay to do some mountaineering between Portland and Vancouver till July 23. I'm an experienced mountaineer, but have never been to Pacific North West. Looking for a reliable partner - Mount Rainier would be an obvious target, but happy to join any other trip - Hood, Olympus, Adams, Jefferson, Baker... between Portland and Vancouver. . See below some basic info about me. Just PM me if you are in the area on those days, and open to potentially team up ! Thanks Vaclav About me: - Entrepreneur/CEO of a medtech company based in Oxford UK,. - Member Academic Alpine Club Zurich (AACZ), Oxford University Mountaineering Club, Austrian Alpine Club. - Have climbed 40+ peaks of comparable or higher difficulty to Rainier at 4000m-7000m elevation.Experience gained mostly in the Alps, Andes, Caucasus, Pamir, Altay. - Physically demanding but not very technical climb on French PD or AD would be ideal for this trip. I have done routes up to French D, but would not be as ambitious with unknown people - Highly safety conscious. Every couple of years i repeat glacier rescue training, and have real-world experience in rescue situations involving other climbers/skiers. - At the moment, i do not plan to bring skis given reported poor snow conditions, but could.
Dear All, How partnering for Mt Rainier during July 18/9 - July 23 ? Hood, Adams, Jefferson, Olympus, Baker .... - or any more interesting peak between near Portland, Seattle and Vancouver. I'm from Europe, nowadays based in Oxford UK, visiting OHSU in Portland for business on July 17/18. Unfortunately I don't know any mountaineers in Pacific North West, so keen to team up ! I am comfortable to lead such climbs technically, with a reliable partner, but unfortunately won't have much time to do research for routes/maps. I'm experienced in both alpine and ski mountaineering, having done 40+ high altitude peaks of comparable/higher technical difficulty than Rainier between 14,000 and 24,000 feet, and practice crevasse and avalanche rescue almost every year. Member of Academic Alpine Club Zurich (AACZ). Good endurance - I have done up to 20 hour mountain routes and up to 16,000 uphill feet in one long day. Not as fit at the moment, but 7,000 feet uphill/day is still fine. Thanks, Vaclav
Partner for Hood South Side!
MikeLennon posted a topic in Climbing PartnersI'm based in California but spend a good amount of time in the NW - have summited Rainier via DC, and Mt Shasta twice via West Face & Avy Gulch. All of these climbs I've done guided and have been given skills courses on all three, and I feel like Ive finally gathered the necessary skills to climb with a partner and not a guide, but I'm not 100% confident in my navigation and rope management skills. Looking for a partner who I can climb Hood south side with this May who may be able to mentor me a bit when it comes to navigation and rope management, and if it works out, partner up for more adventures this summer! Thanks everyone!!
