Currently, I'm in India, looking for partners to do any trad or long routes or sport climbing, especially near Bangalore.
In 2015, I climbed in the USA for about four months culminating with five days at Temple Crag in the Sierras. Ended up doing the three Celestial Arêtes as well as Mt Sill. Following this, I climbed in the somewhat remote Miyar Valley of Himachal Pradesh in NE India, expedition style with a base camp tent, cook and helper. We summited Toro Peak (twice), James Point and David's 62 Nose; all over 16,000'. There was no snow involved; just granite, but at times of very poor quality.
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 for several years in Yosemite (Valley/Tuolumne Meadows) and in the High Sierras and the Cascades in WA. 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!

Jul 11 - Nice route on what looks like a choss pile! Climbed with Devin Waugh. Led P1/P2/P4. P3 seemed the hardest, but didn't feel 5.10! ECS.
