Hi 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
DrVaclav posted a topic in Climber's BoardDear 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
DrVaclav posted a topic in Climbing PartnersDear 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.
