Alpine partner wanted

Recommended Posts

I'm looking to hook up with someone to head into the mountains from now through the summer.


My goals include moderate alpine rock climbs (e.g. Forbidden, Stuart) and harder routes on bigger glaciers (Rainier-Liberty Ridge, Baker).


I'm 29, in good shape, with a decent amount of experience, but little leading. I can follow up to 5.9 or class IV ice, have tools, etc. Graduated from Moutaineers basic climbing class a few years ago. Have climbed Olympus, Glacier, Stuart, Rainier (Emmons), Tooth, Kangaroo Temple, S.Early Winter Spire, a good amount of sport rock and a bit of top rope ice.


I consider myself to be safe, determined, strong.

Would love to meet up with a competent leader to follow and learn from, or other independent folks with similar abilities as mine and a desire to enjoy the mountains.

I am organized and expect the same. (i.e. no bozos)


Right now, work in Seattle restricts my free time mostly to the weekends. I can share driving & have own gear.

So do I have to believe in astrology to climb with you?


Is your birthday Oct.23?


You should know that I have not graduated from the mountaineers course and I consider myself somewhat of a bozo.
