      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Mountaineering partner July 19-23? (Rainier, Hood, Olympus...)

Recommended Posts

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.

I'm flying into Seattle on Wed the 17th and heading to Rainier on Thursday.  I lived in the Pacific NW for 10 years and have previous experience climbing some of the bigger peaks in the Cascades.  I am planning to trek to Camp Muir but ideally would like to do the summit with someone.

Also would be willing to do the Emmons glacier route (2 nights).  Text me or call 612 385 six six nine eight.  I'm 49 and am in great physical condition.  Mt. Rainier is no. 1 on my bucket list.
