I'd describe myself as having a medium level of climbing experience. I've climbed the Sargent's Ridge Route on Shasta and was nearly blown off the Casaval Ridge there. I've climbed Lassen Peak twice and Brokeoff Mountain once.In the Tahoe area I've climbed Tallac, Freel, Pyramid peaks as snow climbs, and also Tinker Knob, Adams, and English Mountain. In the southern Sierra i've climbed Owens, Spanish needle, Lamont, and Smith. And in other Sierra regions I've climbed Moses, North Maggie, Kern Peak, Lone Pine Peak, Whitney (day hike), Whaleback, Sill, Colosseum, Striped, Goodale, Arrow, Hooper, Senger, Seven Gables, Morrison, Silver Peak, Half Dome, Cloud's Rest (day hike from valley floor), Gibbs, Dana, Matterhorn (snow climb), Tower, Stanislaus, Leavitt, and Mokelumne.
I enjoy snow climbs, grand vistas, and avoiding bush whacking. I prefer backpacks to car camps. Since I feel like most of my peaks climbed have been "low hanging" fruit I'd like to try more challenging peaks. I enjoy being in the mountains any time of year - it's all good regardless of the peak. I'll climb peaks I've already done and those not on "The List".
