Snow/Mixed Climbing and Dry Tooling in Sierras?

Hey, I just flew in from Switzerland and made posted about rock climbing, but if it's possible I'd also really like to keep working on my ice/snow/mixed climbing and dry tooling.  At this point I don't know the Sierras well enough to know what, if anything, is possible, but I plan to do some research and hopefully will find some people also interested in such outings.

I've lead up to about M5 on the route "M6 Solar" in Mont Blanc, this year it's very dry so it was largely dry tooling.  While I get used to the Sierras I'd probably shoot for something a bit less technical though.  I'm also happy to do longer easier mixed routes like a traverse (überschreitung?) for example.

Gear-wise I have a bunch of Alpine rope setups, tons of cams (doubles #0.1 - #6, triples #0.2 - #4), and 5 screws.

Shoot me a message if you have any info and/or want to join!
