Hi, 

I'll be in the PNW for the next month or so. I have a very flexible schedule so can usually climb/ski when ever the weather is good. I'm looking for people with enough experience to climb and ski things like Mount Baker, Rainier, and Forbidden Peak. 

I have climbed/skied Rainier twice, Fuhrer Finger (this year) and DC (last year). I really want to get up Baker now. The west ridge of Forbidden Peak is also high on my list. I am in good physical condition (have been doing 6,000' - 7,000' days). I splitboard (use ski boots for better mountaineering qualities). I have a 30 m skimo rope for glacier travel (works well for two, or three with an extra skimo rope for rescue). I have practiced and am familiar with crevasses rescue/glacial travel skills. I have bivied a few times this year and have a jetboil we could use as group gear. Getting 3 hours of sleep and starting at 1 am is something I am comfortable doing.

I'm a 28 year old male.


Other climbing/ski experience includes:

Mt. Whitney, Mountaineers route

Mt. Shasta, Avalanche Gulch skiers right variation

Mt. Hood, Old Chute

Mt. Adams, South Face

Mt Jefferson, Jefferson Park Glacier/North ridge

Pfeifferhorn, North Ridge



Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
