More Info
Seeking NW-based alpine and rock partners with ambitions for technical routes in the greater ranges. Ideal partners could lead: 5.11, A2, WI5, M6 on gear. Of course, grades are subjective and varies depending on area. I'm solid with self rescue, wilderness medicine, build bomber belays (including body, snow, ice, terrain), am pretty ambitious, level headed, laid back, and always open to new and better ways of doing things.
