I am interested. I have only experience leading up to 5.7 trad (though feel comfortable to push that grade) and have done that in a lot of multi pitch and some alpine settings. I also would love to get out into the alpine. Last I'm a teacher and have the summer off. Perhaps we should try some trad routes in the mean time and then try to plan a few larger objectives? Until the school year ends I'm weekend warrioring and perhaps getting up after work once the nights get a LITTLE longer. Or taking sick days.
