Best Times to Meet: Any
Living in Sandy, UT and traveling to WY/CO area frequently.
I am open to about any style of climbing. Not a cutting edge climber, just out to suffer a little from time to time, learn some new skills when possible, meet some new folks, and keep climbing.
Always open!! Over the years I've climbed in various areas and taken a few courses which means I have just enough knowledge to know better, but I still do. Love climbing with more experienced or less experienced climbers ANYTIME!
A couple of dynamic ropes, rack consists of a good range, size and variety of cams, and nuts
Had several solo ascents including, Borah Peak, ID. Lonesome Peak in MT. Several 14ers in CO and CA.
Put up a ridiculous multi-pitch class IV/scramble 5.0- bushwack on some obscure rock in WY not worth mentioning except that the summit was a pretty neat little endeavor. I have a profile on SummitPost with more info. Tackled Dreamweaver on Mt. Meeker in 2008?. Extended backpacking trip in Absaroka-Beartooth wilderness this past summer. I have a beacon/probe/shovel for winter/spring conditions. Pretty flexible as far as goals, desires, etc.
Attended the 2010 Ice Fest in Cody, WY. Will be going again for 2011. Looking to get on the ice in CO/UT/WY. Would like to find an experienced mentor. Willing to travel, and beer. A few pitches under my belt, so just enough of a taste and suffering to want more!!
I can contribute one BD ice screw and a little thingy I made from a wire clothes hanger to feed slings through v-threads.
Looking to expand into aid. I have very little experience at this style of climbing. Willing to belay slave, haul bags to trade for experience and instruction.
Gear: A couple of pitons...willing to contribute to an aid rack anything from my trad/sport rack.
Additionally, I've delved into mixed climbing due to poor route-finding skills, crappy conditions, and a miserable hangover. Yep! I'd probably do it again....
I have found myself on all kinds of interesting adventures or mis-adventures through the years, so hit me up if you feel willing to support an occasionally homeless, partially unemployed, housebroken, down to earth, mid-grade, climbing partner.
