Currently, I'm in the North Cascades of Washington looking for partners to do some nice long trad routes. I can lead most 10's and some 11's outside of Yosemite. This year, I've been in Yosemite and Indian Creek since May. I also like to road bike, especially in the mountains.
In 2013-2014, I climbed in India; mostly sport climbing, but had some fantastic days of crazy trad in the Sahyadri mountains around Mumbai.
I have climbed four summers in Yosemite (Valley/Tuolumne Meadows) and in the High Sierras. 2012's ticks all C2C were Mt Whitney and Russell in one day, and Mt Stuart, Dragontail, and Forbidden Peak. 2010's ticks were Steck-Salathé, which was brutal, yet doable, Red Dihedral (Incredible Hulk), Bugaboos and Mt Yamnuska near Calgary. 2009 ticks included Positive Vibrations (Incredible Hulk). I've climbed in Indian Creek 4-5 times and usually spend about 3 weeks at a time.
In CO, where I really got my trad on over three summers (seems like a long time ago), I took advantage of Eldorado and Boulder Canyons, the Flatirons, Lumpy Ridge and RMNP. Alpine-wise, I've been on The Diamond twice (2008 bailed on Casual Route, 2009 Yellow Wall 5.10c/d variation. Climbed Petit Grepon and Directisima on the Chasm View Wall. I've also hiked several 14'ers. In 2011, I trekked to Everest Base camp and four other points higher than that; two peaks, two passes, no porter, no guide, most amazing!
I have my own 60m & 70m ropes and trad rack, which is well suited for linking pitches, and am a pretty safe climber. I am a better technical climber than a power-house, so bouldery routes can evade me! I like long trad and alpine routes. I also do days of sport, but am not attracted to bouldering outside; hence my lack of power!
I have an SUV with plenty of room for another person, as well as all camping gear, including two tents/sleeping bags and a bivy sack for backcountry days.
I am pretty friendly and work well with other people. I can also show you the ropes, if you like, or be shown the same on harder stuff!
