Looking for a partner for February ice and alpine. I'll be based in Denver. I've led and followed a few pitches a year for the past four or five, but am looking to consolidate those skills this season. Ideal objectives are Dreamweaver or the Kiener's route (if those are even done in February). But I'm also down for ice cragging, and rock too if it's warm enough. Good to lead WI3 and follow WI4, probably harder, but I want to start conservatively. Not afraid of slogs, not afraid of the cold, not afraid to drive a few hours to meet you somewhere worthwhile.
I have no avi training and have not been in the Colorado backcountry in Winter so I'm looking for guidance here. I do have a bit of experience in Winter in New Hampshire's White Mountains however. I'll have the whole month free so I'm really looking to get after it consistently.
