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 !



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.
