Anyone out there up for taking on a mountaineering protege this year? I've been climbing for 3 1/2 years and working my way up longer and harder hikes for the last year and 1/2. Hoping to make some summits this year and would definitely prefer to go along with someone more experienced than myself. Thank you!
Oh, your a dude.*stops sucking in gut and smiling* Washington has some great lower end mountaineering groups to get your foot in the door, I've heard of some in Oregon but don't know specifically who runs them. Just gotta search for them. It makes alot more sense to go out with a group to see if it's what you really want to do, than search and find a goat dad that invests time in you then you say "nah, not for me". Also, some partners finder posts specifically mention future ascents. Just message those guys and eventually someone will invite you along so you can gain hands on experience.
