More information:
Just created my mt project account. I've been climbing since the early 90's and enjoy all different aspects of the sport from trad, sport, general mountaineering to ice and snow (although ice on the west side of the Sierra's is hard to find). Although I'm raising kids now and it's a bit harder to find time, I'm always interested in exploring something new and meeting new climbing partners. I'm actively involved in technical Search and Rescue as well as a previous EMT Paramedic and graduate of US JSOC combat medic course so can provide to be an asset if you are looking to strenghen your team. With a few weeks of training, I could tune back up the numbers of my trad leading ability into the 11 range. I also have experience in high altitude (expedition style) and remote climbing. I'd describe myself as a well rounded climber with plenty of experience to keep my head about me in difficult situations. I appreciate like minded partners and those enjoying the 'adventure' routes.
