Restaurant worker, so mostly available during the day and weekdays/evenings. I can get time off fairly easily if planned early enough
Although I have only been climbing for about 2.5 years, I have really taken the plunge and try to climb whenever I can. I've led several multi-day alpine climbs (my first lead climb ever was Grand Teton! Yikes...) have mountaineered in Patagonia, summitted several peaks in the PNW, including two routes on Hood, Mt. Shuksan, Black Peak, Mt. Triumph, Ingalls Peak, got to explore the Gunks, Seneca Rocks, Moab, and Indian Creek this summer... and generally can lead 5.9+ trad / 5.10b sport. I'm trying to get myself to project 5.11's, but am getting over the headiness of falling! Also trying to knock some more big Yosemite climbs out after falling in love with the Valley and Tuolumne. Looking to get more into ice climbing this winter, too! Basically, long, moderate alpine climbs are what really get me going, but I love cragging and multi-pitch climbs too!
I really want to learn crevasse rescue, do some multi-day mountaineering climbs (ex-Rainier), learn how to be more fast and efficient on multi-pitch alpine climbs, and build better trad anchors. Also, just started ice climbing and I LOVE IT. I've never been one to push my grade super hard, but I want to kick it up a notch - projecting leading 11s outside and want to be able to crush them next summer!
Would also love to do a redemption climb of Grand Teton to make up for being just shy of the summit!
Some PNW peaks on my list:
- Prusik Peak
