More Info
Seeking NW-based alpine and rock partners with ambitions for technical routes in the greater ranges. Ideal partners could lead: 5.11 on gear, A2, WI5, M7; ski adequately to get to / from alpine routes; build bomber belays (including body and terrain belays); and climb fast on most 5.10 pitches. Of course, grades are subjective and varies depending on area, so this is ballpark.
