Working at Planet Granite Portland, so my schedule always changes!
Although I have only been climbing for about 3.5 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 three routes on Hood, Mt. Shuksan, Black Peak, Mt. Triumph, Ingalls Peak, got to explore the Gunks, Seneca Rocks, Moab, Yosemite... and generally can lead 5.9+ trad / 5.10b sport. Projecting 5.11 outside, but still getting over the headiness of falling! Basically, long, moderate alpine climbs are what really get me going.
Trying to tick off my prerequisites for taking my AMGA Rock Guide Course, which includes being super solid on 5.10 trad and breaking into 11s. Also need to have 50 multi pitch climbs under my belt, so working towards that as well!
Also would love to get a bunch more ice climbing in while the season is here 🙂
Some PNW peaks on my list:
- Prusik Peak
- Anything in the Picket Range
60m rope, 70m rope, quickdraws, trad / alpine rack 00 to 4, UL backpacking setup, BC ski setup, ice tools, 4 ice screws, no beacon, Honda Element!!!
