More information:
I just moved to Missoula in late June and I'm desparately looking for climbing partners! I'm most interested in long alpine trad lines, but open to anything. I'd also like to get some more experience with glacier travel. I'm comfortable leading 5.9/5.10 trad and I hope to push that this summer.

This summer I will be working for the Forest Service conducting stream surveys in the mountains of western Montana. The schedule has us camping in the backcountry for 8 days, then 6 days off. I plan to spend my 6 day breaks climbing and mountaineering; I'm not even getting a place to live.

I'm interested in climbing around Missoula and also planning to do some traveling. Some places I have in mind are: Glacier NP, Banff, Bugaboos, Cascades, Rocky Mountain NP, Mt. Rainier, Moab, Squamish, Devils Tower, Grand Tetons, Wind Rivers.

My schedule has the following 6 day breaks: 6/30-7/5, 7/14-7/19, 7/28-8/2, 8/11-8/16, 8/25-8/30 and 9/8 onward.
